MUNICH, GERMANY. The moment we stepped out of the train and into the large platform of the Hauptbahnhof, the first thing I thought about was FOOD. Not because I was hungry per se but because of the endless options of tummy delights they have there. So if you are thinking of putting off any food intake until you arrive at the Hauptbahnhof, these are just some of the choices you will find when you arrive there.
Höflinger - for the bread addicts
If you are looking for some nice breads, rolls, fine cakes and other confectionery items, Höflinger is your best bet. They pride themselves on diversity, so be ready to get overwhelmed by their amazing variety when you approach the counter.
Rubenbauer - For the sandwiches and meat lovers
If you want to stuff your tummy with big and heavy things like sandwiches and meat, you can never go wrong with Rubenbauer. Tailored according to the needs of travellers, you will also find some coffee-to-go, sausages, meatloaf, pizza and other filling foods in there.
Aside from the kiosk in the main hall is a 1300 square meter extensive food court, also a Rubenbauer, just across it. It opens later in the day and features 6 different stalls offering different things which is perfect if you can't decide yet what to eat. It also has a self-service shop, restaurant and a convenience store. Definitely, a one-stop shop.
Brioche Dorée - for the sweet-tooth
If you happen to crave for something sweet at the end of a meal or satisfy one that popped up during your travel, you better approach this amazing kiosk called Brioche Dorée. Brioche Dorée started in France 30 years ago as a single café bakery that quickly gained notoriety with its lovely Parisian style and urban French cuisine. Discover their daily selection of freshly baked artisan breads, pure butter Viennoiseries, house-made Brioche, muffins and classic french Patisseries.
Take a look also of their big and delicious macarons, bread cookie, tartlets, brownie, custard cake and Creme Brulee to overwhelm some more your senses. Of course, they also have an extensive menu of breakfast meals, soup, entrées, sandwiches, quiches and crepes if you are craving for more.
Dean & David - for the health conscious & light-eaters
With a slogan "Fresh to eat" attached to its name, Dean & David prides itself on having a list of items that is not just healthy but also fresh, organic and filling. The offerings in this restaurant is a potpourri of some of the amazing and healthy dishes that the owner, David, came across during his sabbaticals and travels around the world; New York was the inspiration for its salad bars, Australia for their juices and smoothies while South East Asia for their soups and curries. The sandwiches and wraps which was tagged as "Fresh food for fast people" really live up to their name.
Their Vollkorn-Piadine, which literally translates to whole-wheat flatbread, is nice and light! They have some amazing selections there that cater to different taste-buds. Definitely an item to consider when you are looking around for something new to eat which is at the same time filling and healthy.
See? There's a lot to choose from in Munich's Hauptbahnhof! You just can never run out of options.
