While wandering around downtown Munich one day during our recent trip, we decided to pull up TripAdvisor and see if there were any recommended restaurants for dinner in our immediate area near the Marienplatz. As this place was both highly rated and only a few blocks away from us, we decided to wander over and give them a try – and we are glad that we did. We were seated in the smaller dining room in the back near the kitchen as the front dining room was mostly reserved for a larger party coming in a bit later (which seemed like a good sign) and our waitress was one of the friendliest, and most enthusiastic, that we encountered during our entire stay in Germany. The subsequent meal was, hands down, the best gastropunk experience that we had during our stay in Munich.
Lady Tigella is an Italian restaurant, but possibly not in the sense that most people are familiar with (including ourselves when we arrived). Their menu is based on a regional specialty from an area of Northern Italy that does not seem to be that common in other places. Tigella is a type of bread whose slices are about the circumference of a biscuit, but only about the thickness of a pancake. Warm, freshly baked slices of the bread were brought to our table with a wide assortment of meats and cheeses, along with several different sauces. One then slices a piece of the tigella in half and then fills it with whatever you like from the various ingredients brought to the table. The small slices of the tigella allowed us each to try a wide variety of different combinations of meats, cheeses and sauces. Everything brought to the table was fresh, and it all tasted amazing. We paired all of this with a nice bottle of Chianti and the end result was a fabulous meal.
We would gladly return on a future visit to Munich, and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great dinner in the area.
