Zum Fass'l - Munich

Zum Fass'l - Leopoldstrasse 171, 80804 Munich, Germany

A very secret tip frequented by "Stammgäste", older people or those who live in the neighbourhood (where the gastronomic alternatives are scarce).

So don't be scared by the ambience or of being watched by everyone when you enter.

Two years ago the chef was given a "Gastro-Award" and I can confirm that the food is okay. They serve both German traditionals and Thai-influenced dishes. The prices are also very reasonable.

You would probably never notice this cozy family run restaurant specializing in home cooked meals, located across the street from the Holiday Inn. They serve what I refer to as comfort food. Nothing too unusual, but done well, and satisfying. The appetizers of note are the Toast Fassel and Toast Madagascar (one is pork, the other steak) were flavorful, and not found anywhere else in Munich. They also have very nice Chicken soup and Tomatoe soup. Lots of specials, but my favorite main dish is the Grandmother. Pork served with fried potatoes, onions and bacon. I just love these potatoes. Describing them doesn't do them justice. The owners are Heinz (the chef)and his wife Emma.

Hey Marco, you're recommending this restaurant with nice chicken soup and tomato soup....made by Heinz. I love these Heinz soups as well but I order them over the internet from one of these British food company's at €2 a 400g can. How do Zum Fassls price compare? Regards Stephanie
