    San Francisco: San Francisco

    by mindcrime Written Feb 6, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked on Theatinerstrasse early before 8.00am on a cold December morning. San Francisco café seemed like a shelter for us, at least we could drink something hot before we go out on the cold again.
    There are lots of coffees of course, I took a medium cappuccino (3,40e) but there are also chocolates, smoothies, teas, iced coffees (with the temperature down to zero that wasn’t actually a choice). If you are hungry there are sandwiches, muffins etc

    The main room is very big and lucks of character but we didn’t care that much. There’s also free wi-fi.

    Taklamakan: Taklamakan

    by mindcrime Written Feb 6, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a restaurant located opposite the train station, the fact that stays open till 5.00am (!!) makes it ideal for late night comers by train/plane and the numerous guests of near by hostels/hotels so although its nothing special it is great for a quick bite. It looks a like a typical Turkish fast food bar but in reality it is an Uyghur restaurant (Turkish speaking Chinese people that combine different food cultures, Asian and arabic), the names on the menu may look weird and unknown but the pictures will help to feel less confused :)

    You can take away sandwich or doner style things or you can choose a table and have a proper lunch, we tried ququra soup (6e) which was tasty, donner kebap (4,5e), veggie doner (3,5e) and Uighur kebap platte (grill) that costs 10e but was served with rice and vegetables.

    We washed them down with Weis beer (3e for a pint)

    It’s open daily 8.30am-5.00am

    Bräustüberl Weihenstephan: University of Beer

    by travelfrosch Updated Jan 24, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Weihenstephan, which claims to be the oldest brewery in the world, is well-known for its excellent quality beer brewed on campus in the Munich suburb of Freising.

    Wait, did he just say ON CAMPUS? Why yes, I did. It so happens the brewery is now run under the auspices of the Technical University of Munich, and the students get to brew the beer. I sense a rush of veterans reading the fine print of their GI Bills to see if it might cover tuition here (alas, no).

    The Bräustüberl is a bit out of the way and takes some time to get to from downtown Munich, but those who venture here will be rewarded by a nice indoor restaurant, a shady beer garden in good weather, and excellent quality food and beer at reasonable prices.

    If you happen to be staying near the Hauptbahnhof, it might be quicker to take a local train (RB, RE, or ALEX) to Freising instead of the S-Bahn. MVV day tickets (for "Gesamtnetz") are valid on local trains to Freising (but not beyond). To confirm this, make sure the train sign on the platform does not have the remark "MVV Gelten Nicht." If you do take the S-Bahn, be aware the train splits. Make sure the car you board is going to Freising, not the Airport (Flughafen).

    Favorite Dish: It takes awhile to get to, so I like to depart Munich early in the morning to get there for an early lunch. On Sunday mornings, they serve fresh weisswurst, which I find makes a fine meal along with a couple of fresh pretzels and a weissbier.

    OK, so you end up having some beer a bit before Noon. You're on vacation, right?

    Frauenhofer: typical bavarian

    by PALLINA Written Nov 29, 2012

    Nicely located in Glockenbackviertel, Frauenhofer offers exactely what you can expect from a Bavarian restaurant: good bier, noise, large portions. Food was very good and not only typical bavarian; besides bavarian classics you can enjoy a fantastic cous cous, for instance. Unfortunately very noisy like almost all Bavarians places.

    L'Angolo della Pizza: as good as in Italy

    by PALLINA Updated Oct 6, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Thanks to my unforgottable Lonely Planet, this place was love at first sight (or bite!). This is an Italian pizzeria restaurant run by Italians (second generation...their Italian is a bit "germanized") with a lot of foreign waitresses (all speaking German, Italian and English). Nicely located not far from Ostbahnhof (East Station), it is a really cute "corner" where to have a GREAT PIZZA. Ingredients must be really good, the mozzarella was a real one, not the usual sticky thing you can find outside Italy. We had a fantastic ham pizza and a wonderful home-made tiramisù. Two fantastic Bavarian dark Weissbier completed the rest! We stayed in a very pleasant terrasse, surely inside is a bit noisy but it worths definitely. On Monday they have the "Pizzatag": all pizzas cost 30% less. Reservations are strongly raccomended.

    Unexplainable tiramis��....

    Hirschgarten: Wonderful Place to Eat and Relax

    by travelfrosch Updated Jun 22, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here is an experience that is quintessentially Munich. This massive beer garden on the west side of town can be described as the neighborhood's living room. Enjoy a warm evening here, and you won't regret it. This place also has the advantage of being right on the main S-Bahn line at the "Laim" stop. Any S-Bahn (except S-7, S-20, or S-27) will get you here. This is definitely a viable place to enjoy your final hours in Munich before catching a night train from the Hauptbahnhof (4 S-Bahn stops away).

    UPDATE: I was able to enjoy the World Cup consolation game with other VTers in the Hirschgarten. Set up by Richie, the happy group had a great time. Thanks, Richie!

    Favorite Dish: There are several food stands to choose from, with choices ranging from chicken to pork to fish. As for beer, the three varieties of beer on tap are Augustiner, König Ludwig Hell, and Tegernseer Hofbräu. The latter brew is tasty and refreshing -- quite a find even among the excellent beers in Munich. You can find the Tegernseer brew at Schänke 5.

    VTers await the World Cup at the Hirschgarten The Hirschgarten Biergarten Oh, Deer... Get your Tegernseer beer here Beer.... mmmmmm....

    A pub/brewery between terminals 1 & 2 of Munichs Franz Josef Strauss airport. Outside seating for summer and cosy inside for winter, food and beer very good too. Have some time to wait for that delayed flight? there is no better place I think!

    Paulaner Bräuhaus: Paulaner Bräuhaus

    by bonio Updated Apr 18, 2012

    The brewpub of the Paulaner brewery, they have an enormous site elsewhere in the city, the beer brewed here is different ond is mostly only available here too, recommend Zwickel!
    An evening visit for us and it's an impressive building, brewing equipment on show as well. A menu with all the local favourites on it and all nicely done, enjoyed our meal here.

    A second visit in April 2012, enjoyed the goulash soup and orange juice! Driving later - honest!

    Unionsbräu-Haidhausen: The Rick Steves "Jackie-O" Beerhall!

    by travelfrosch Updated Jan 11, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    That's right, all you Stevesians -- the legendary beerhall with the "Jackie-O" coasters!

    The restaurant has several levels -- I went to the lowest level, which is the beerhall. The place definitely has a local feel to it. A dark, woody atmosphere with a clientele that skews a bit toward youth. Prices are quite low by Munich standards.

    The restaurant hosts live jazz/dixieland music in its "Malzboden" hall Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 8PM - Midnight. Advance reservation suggested, EUR 6 cover charge.

    Favorite Dish: The food is just fine. Try a fully-loaded baked potato (ofenkartoffel) as a meal if you're getting a bit sick of the wurst-and-kraut grind.

    While the restaurant is owned by Löwenbräu now, it brews its own beer, just as it has since 1922. The unfiltered microbrews are very good.

    Fischer-Vroni: Mackerel on a Stick!

    by travelfrosch Updated Jan 11, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the more famous stands in the Hirschgarten biergarten is the Fischer-Vroni stand, the original mackerel-on-a-stick eatery. Open daily during good weather, the stand offers, as you would expect, grilled fish, sold by weight. While you can also get salmon, trout, and "salmon-trout" (steelhead), the most common thing to buy is mackerel. Normally, you buy an entire fish, grab some lemon wedges, napkins and a small wooden fork, then enjoy with a beer (sold at various other kiosks).

    Fischer-Vroni also hosts a small beer tent at Oktoberfest.

    Favorite Dish: Sara and I split a good-sized mackerel, which cost about EUR 15. Tasty!

    Fish on a stick! Yummy mackerel!

    Jodlerwirt: The Joke's on You (But you won't get it...)

    by travelfrosch Updated Jan 11, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here's another of my favorite places from my single days. This small restaurant/pub is unassuming enough from the outside. But go inside and upstairs, and enter a raucous place featuring a lederhosen-clad accordion player -- Bavaria's answer to Larry the Cable Guy. Enjoy good food and delicious beer while Herr Larry serenades you and fires one-liners in an incomprehensible Bavarian dialect. If you look out of place (and you will), you'll quickly become the butt of many of his bawdy jokes. But don't worry: you won't understand what he's saying. Assume it's something to the effect of "Git 'r Dun!"

    Food and beer are quite expensive upstairs, as you can imagine. The same quality food and drink is available downstairs for a significantly lower price (but you don't get the floor show).

    Open from 6PM-3AM, food served until 11PM. Floor show starts around 9PM. Closed Sunday and Monday May-August, Closed Sunday September-April. Open every day during Oktoberfest.

    Favorite Dish: The menu is varied and of high quality. One time, I remember ordering the "Kässpätzle" (German pasta with cheese), not generally considered a Bavarian dish. I remember the accordion player noticing my order and making a comment that I think involved calling me a "Swabian pig."

    The beer of choice is Ayinger, one of the best beers in Bavaria. I especially like their hefeweizen (which probably makes me a Franconian weirdo, but I digress...)

    Seehaus im Englischen Garten: Lakeside Beer in the Englischer Garten

    by travelfrosch Updated Jan 11, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are few better places to spend a summer afternoon than at the Seehaus beer garden, ideally situated by the Kleinhesseloher Lake in the Englischer Garten. The setting couldn't be nicer, with tables for the taking all the way to the lake shore. Watch the rowboats and paddleboats go by, or commune with the ducks and swans as they beg for your food.

    Favorite Dish: Beer garden fare is self-service and good. The chicken and spare ribs are tasty.

    Paulaner is the beer of choice at this establishment. A half-liter glass of Paulaner Weissbier goes quite well with the setting.

    Spatenhaus an der Oper: Bavarian Specialties

    by MM212 Updated Nov 24, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located opposite the Opera House (hence the name), Spatenhaus an der Oper is an excellent place in Munich to experience Bavarian specialties. The menu has a very large selection, but I ordered the most delicious wienerschnitzel I've ever had! The dining room is decorated with Bavarian touches, including a frescoed ceiling. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel.

    One more on our seemingly ongoing quest to visit all the Augustiner restaurants in Munich. Just arrived in town and our hotel not ready for a couple of hours so time for a lunch break!
    Comfortable large restaurant, English menu if required, and a huge pork steak for me, Mrs B very happy with her veggie option as well and an added bonus Oktoberfest beer avaiable too.
    Enjoyed our visit here very much.

    Another Augustiner restaurant, another good meal with predictably good beer as well.
    Very busy on the evening we arrived and fortunate to find a small table, interesting menu, Holzfällersteak for me, very nicely done and Kasspatzn, an old favourite for the vegetarian!
    Good place to visit and get there early!
