Caspar Plautz offers a set menu with seasonal variations and a weekly dish for immediate consumption – and of course potatoes of all kinds to take home. One also learns this at Caspar Plautz: There are all sorts of varieties in the potato universe. Or would you happen to know what a “Kalber Rotstange”, a “Naglerner Kipfler” or a “Vitelotte” taste like?
Kitty-corner from Caspar Plautz are the coffee roasters at the Viktualienmarkt.
And yes, the freshly roasted coffee is truly delicious – indeed some come merely on account of the handmade Florentine biscuits made by a cake and pastry chef with whom they are acquainted and which are simply delightful.
The combination of biscuits and caffeine is the ideal break from the hustle and bustle if you need to refuel: The coffee roasters offer a place to slow right down and make a conscious choice against “to go” and “take-away”.
The Viktualienmarkt is Munich’s mecca for all gourmet food fetishists. This is a place for discovering culinary specialities whose very existence was hitherto unknown to the people who visit: Smoked fish stands and juice presses, coffee, bread and cake – at the 140 stands in total you’ll find the exotic as well as the local, and at the end of the day no one leaves the square hungry.
The Viktualienmarkt is open Monday to Saturday from 8.00 a.m. – the last stands close at 8.00 p.m.
