As cafes, bars and restaurants close their doors once again, here are some fun ways to enjoy the best of Munich’s culinary (and mixology) scene – and support small businesses.
You can find a similar article from earlier in the year here. It includes many additional places also currently serving takeaway bites.
Something for the weekend. This Neuhausen classic is offering dinner to-go on Friday and Saturday nights. By dinner, I mean several courses, dessert included, and an optional wine recommendation. Pick-up at the restaurant.
Tip: Orders should be made by 6pm on Thursday, but get in early as their food is in high demand and may run out.
In a similar set up, Westend’s Das Kulinariat is offering weekend meals for two. Their “menu boxes” showcase the talent of their chef as well as those of other locals; this week’s menu includes a cheesecake from Viktualienmarkt patisserie LEAZAPF.
Those used to making a regular pilgrimage to Maxvorstadt to pick up an excellent loaf of freshly made bread from Julius Brantner will be excited to hear that there is now a new place to get a fix. Head to AROMA KAFFEEBAR for the pop-up bakery.
Umai Streetfood Market
In the backyard of his newly opened restaurant Salon Rouge, Michelin-star chef Tohru Nakamura has created a small food market offering food to go. The Hokkaido burger with ginger mayonnaise and pickles looks amazing.
Om Nom Nom
If it’s brunch you fancy, then Sendling cafe Om Nom Nom is preparing colourful boxes to share. Each one is packed full with fruit and vegetables, cheese, savoury snacks, spreads, cakes and other sweet treats. Again, weekend only.
Need a way to remember what day it is? I suggest Friday night cocktails! Once a week, Garçon are delivering bottles of their finest drinks within quite a large radius of their bar. They’ll even supply the ice.
Minimum order: Two cocktails.
Call Soul – Breaking Bar
For something a little different, you could also try cocktails from Call Soul. This series-inspired bar has found a way to deliver their drinks whilst maintaining their experimental presentation. Expect chemistry-lab style vessels and bubbling concoctions.
Storm in a Coffee Pot
Good coffee is easy to get hold of during lockdown with most places open for take-away drinks or beans to go. However, I did enjoy that Storm in a Coffee Pot recently plonked a large flask of batch brew on the pavement so people didn’t have to go inside their shop!
This is obviously only a very small selection of places (it’s impossible to list them all) so I’d love to hear your recommendations!
