Munich quick bites

Street food, fast food, and picnic pickings in Munich, Germany

The Viktualienmarkt is a great place to shop for picnic supplies.

You can drop into any beer hall tavern and get a plate of sausages or just a mug of beer and a pretzel in 20 minutes or so, even if half the attraction is settling in for a while.

The best food value in town is the Viktualienmarkt, the old outdoor food market on the square just southeast of Marienplatz, where you can put together a great picnic and stop for a brewski at the biergarten while you're at it.

Butcher shops offer slices of a beef-and-bacon meatloaf called Leberkäs (eaten with mustard and a roll).

Summertime opens up countless sidewalk stands hawking sausages and sandwiches (schinkensemmel is a ham sandwich, wurtzsemmel features sliced sausages).
