Almost exactly this time last year, I wrote about TasteTwelve Munich 2015. You reserve a table at one of the twelve restaurants included in the book, and one main course is free.
Over the course of 2015 I’ve tried out many of the restaurants in the book – discovering new, seriously delicious places to eat (Broeding, Bar Corso and Restaurant No. 15 for example), and rediscovering old favourites (Gratitude).
The 2016 TasteTwelve Munich book contains some of 2015’s favourites – Broeding, Shane’s Restaurant and Koriander Too are all in there, but there are also lots of new and exciting places to try out.
For 2016, the Maxvorstadt family-run Italian trattoria Porto Cervo has been included. Ignore the rather plain decor, their focus is on food – they do great pizzas, pasta and Sardinian wines, and service is friendly.
The Schwabing restaurant Salzkruste is also on the 2016 list – and I haven’t heard anyone say a bad word about it. As a Brit in Munich, I often lament the lack of fresh fish here – we’re so far away from the sea, but Salzkruste apparently do fabulously simple fish dishes, and service is said to be wonderful.
I’m also keen to try the Sofitel’s Délice la Brasserie, famous for their in-house dry aged beef, and I’ve heard lots of good things about The Charles’ Hotel’s Davvero, with its upscale Italian food. Talking of The Charles Hotel, the book includes a day pass to the hotel’s spa, which means you can treat yourself to a luxurious day at the city centre hotel.
Buy online for 36 € here (it’s a great idea for a Christmas present!) and do let me know which of the restaurants you like the most!
