Bavarian Food @ Spatenhaus, Munich

After two days in Essen I spent the weekend in Munich visiting Bali and Angelina. For lunch Bali took me to sample some authentic Bavarian Food at Spatenhaus, a very popular restaurant among locals.

Bavarian Pretzel are different from other regions because they tend to be crustier and more dense than their Northern Counterparts.

Bavarian Plate
Bavarian Meat Platter
My Bavarian Plate came with Crispy Duck, Pork Knuckle, Sucking Pig, Sausages, Apple Red Cabbage, Sauerkraut Potato and Bread Dumplings . The Meats were all very tender and I particularly enjoyed the Pork Knuckle whose skin was super crispy.

Braised Red Cabbage
One of my favorites in Germany. The Roast Pork Shoulder was very tender and seasoned just right it was served with some Red Cabbage, Sauerkraut and Knoddle.

Plate of Game
Game Platter
The Platter of Game Meats came with Grilled Wild Boar, Fillet of Hare, Saddle of Venison and was served with a side of Spaetzle and Brussel Sprouts.

Roast Deer Medallions
Roast Deer Medallions
The Deer Medallions was served with a bowl of Buttered Spaetzle. The meat was tender and went really well with the Glazed Grapes and Mushroom Sauce.

If you are craving for some authentic and good traditional Bavarian Food, Spatenhaus is definitely a place to visit. The portions are big so it is recommended that you come really hungry.
