A postcard from Munich. Rathaus (town hall) minus the rats.
This place was recommended by two girls (really nice girls) we met on the train from Paris to Munich. We thought it was worth checking out. We did drop in for a late lunch after taking a few photos around Altstadt and doing some shopping but we didn’t get lunch because we were late. Their pedantic waiter said they stopped serving lunch although they had plenty of food in their buffet. It was weird not being able to get lunch while they had so much food on display (photo below).
In the end, we decided to have a slice of cake to keep us going and book a table for dinner while we were there. Well, the cakes were nice but the attitude wasn’t.
We thought we might have better luck when we came back for dinner, hoping that Mr Pedantic wouldn’t be there but he was. He gave us the menu in English with a slimy smirk on his face as if to say “I remember you” but luckily we had someone else to serve us for the night. And she was nicer. After we deliberately broke the ice, though.
Here’s what we had, considering:
I had Nansei (stir-fried vegetables with oyster mushrooms, bamboo shoots, carrots, scallions, broccoli and smoked tofu in teriyaki sauce)
John had Koh Samui (wok-roasted peppers, mushrooms, scallions, bean sprouts, snow peas, pineapple and banana in a Thai coconut-curry-lemongrass sauce)
These two mains we ordered are served with either white or brown Basmati rice but we weren’t told that. So, we ended up with white rice (below).
I didn’t have a dessert but John had Crème Brulee (below).
We had high hopes for this place as it is one of the best vegetarian restaurants of Munich. The food was OK; nothing special but the service was unfriendly and a little hostile. If you still want to go, here’s the details:
