We knew we'd tire of Bavarian food while spending 8 days in Munich, so we sought out ethnic food. The Sofitel concierge recommended Keko, and we were so happy he did. It was a subway stop and short walk away from the main train station, but that was enough to get us out of the tourist area and into a real neighborhood. On the way, we walked through a lively local market that was geared to Muncheners, not tourists. The menu was only in German (a good sign), and they served Turkish wines (pretty good), other European wines as well as beer. The very friendly Turkish waiter spoke English fairly well and recommended a few dishes, including appetizer plates of eggplant & zucchini, and scrumptious fried sardines. Our family of five shared two salads, and three main dishes all with lamb. The waiter recommended favorites, not the most expensive items, and we licked our plates. We were about to say we were too full to order dessert, when they brought out a complimentary dessert plate with various honey soaked favorites and fruit as well as tea. We somehow finished everything. All that for about $120 total (including drinks and tip). The decor was simple, but pleasant. If you need a break from bratwurst, take a stroll and enjoy Keko.
