Step back in the year 1973 at Munich’s leading restaurant, Tantris. I am positive that if you could take a photograph of the Sunday lunch crowd at Tantris that you could keep a crowd of gallery goers enthralled for hours. It’s the pure Germanity of it all. The men with multiple ear piercings and ponytails. The women with various augmentations. The mustaches – oh the mustaches. It’s so very hard to concentrate on food with the kalediscope of horrors going on around you.
But what wonderful food it is at Tantris. The Sunday lunch menu is four course (kein options, bitte) and for us consisted of a soup with asparagus and scallops, two mains based on pork (always the culturally sensitive meat choice), and a fabulous rhubarb and cream medley of desserts. The wine pairings were stunning with much of the wine coming from Rheinland-Pfalz and the service was top notch. This is doubtless the recipe which has earned them 19 Gault Millau points and 2 Michelin stars.
Highly recommended when you find yourself in the warm embrace of Munich.
