Haguruma, a Simple Japanese Restaurant

It's time for sushis this week! Seeing how many sushi restaurants there are in Munich, we wanted to write about one that we think is pretty special. A restaurant that stands out from all running sushis, all you can eat or other high-end, loungy and super expensive sushi places. Eating at Haguruma is a real experience: your dinner will be a really good memory for your taste buds... and for your wallet as well!

Max-Pett, Vegan Restaurant in Munich

The Oktoberfest is now over (hurray??), meaning it's time to get back to some of the healthier resolutions that we probably all took on January 1st, but gently left home for those 17 days of chaos. We're going to Isarvorstadt/Ludwigsvorstadt, to "Max-Pett" on the advice of Marie-Louise, one of our kind readers, who recommended "not to be put off by the fact that it's vegan, it is more delicious than most of Munichs' other restaurants." I wouldn't say we're huge vegan fans so to speak (we love meat way too much) but we do like good food so we gave it a shot, and the result was very surprising indeed. Full report below the fold...
