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…

The Location & Atmosphere:

Max-Pett is located not too far from Sendlinger Tor, so quite central. From the outside, the terrace is very welcoming with a couple of big trees. In sommer a very comfortable scene… However on the inside of the restaurant, we found the atmosphere a little bit cold.

The fffoood:

The menu offers a good variety of meals, which change with the seasons. A nice little touch also showing that the owners stick to their values. In addition, Max-Pett offers a menu of the week where each day offers a different dish – as well as a breakfast buffet on Saturdays and Bank Holidays for 10,80EUR. Overall a good selection varying between tofu, soja based meals and vegetables.

We went for the Ayurveda Plate which we shared, but took the opportunity to take pictures of a couple of other meals too. I for one believe that the appearance of the food and the taste play an equal role in the overall note. Max-Pett doesn’t disappoint on this one… The meals are carefully crafted and presented in a way that pleases the eye.

From a taste perspective, Max-Pett also seems to be a lot more creative than your average vegan restaurant and make interesting combinations of tastes and textures. The Ayurveda plate is in our opinions a typical example. We absolutely loved it!

The Max-Pett sandwich, with its impressive height, is another example. The composition looks very interesting to say the least, though we haven’t tried it yet. If you have, please do let us know what you thought about it!

Finally, Max-Pett also offers a variety of desserts which will satisfy the sweet-teeth among us…

The Verdict:

Overall, our experience at Max-Pett was good and the food is definitely worth going to, even if you might have some negative ideas about vegan food. The portions are also more than fair for the money asked. Though the overall atmosphere was not particularly inviting to us, we really liked the food and would definitely recommend Max-Pett!

What the Sweet One thought:

A surprisingly positive experience for the meat lover that I am. I also enjoyed the mango lassi, refreshing drink made from yogurt and mango pulp, offered with the Ayurveda plate. The service was very friendly too. Thumbs up for me, though I also agree on the fact that the inside atmosphere could be a little warmer.
