Good sandwich dealers in Munich: The 7 best - Rausgegangen
Sometimes all you need is a really good sandwich. Here are a few good places to go the next time you're hungry for two folded and thickly filled slices of bread.
The offer for vegans in Munich is growing in all areas and since March 2022 we can also look forward to a purely vegan sandwich store. Not far from Marienplatz at Altheimer Eck 9 in the old town, plänty serves a wide variety of purely plant-based sandwich creations. For example, the Bängkok Crunch with spicy organic sunflower mince Asia style on spinach, red cabbage kimchi, spring onions, cucumber, jalapeño-coriander-mint pesto, roasted sesame seeds and spicy cashew crunch. Sandwiches with vegan chicken and tuna are also on offer. On weekdays, plänty Sandwiches starts the day at 7 a.m. with Fairtrade coffee, bread and pastries. You can then look forward to the plänty sandwiches at lunchtime from 11:30 am.
Whenever you visit the Fortuna Cafébar in Haidhausen, you are greeted by the Dolce Vita - and an extremely tasty selection of sandwiches. The classics include juniper ham with mozzarella, tomato, orange mustard and rocket or the sandwich with goat's cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and honey. Speaking of Italy - there are also panini, of course, and we recommend the "Tonno" with capers and tomatoes. Pick one up and go window shopping in the Haidhausen hood or head to Bordeauxplatz, which is just around the corner and has plenty of benches.
And then came Corona and the Spezlwirtschaft - known for really good schnitzel and other classics of Bavarian cuisine - launched a street vendor. In addition to creamy delicacies and hot lunch dishes, they also serve sandwiches. And they sound so good that we'll simply recite a few creations: For example, the Inferno Vegetale sandwich with carrots, cauliflower, hummus and crunch. Or for meat lovers, the Konkatsu Bavarese with chicken, cucumber radish, Sriracha mayo and peanut. If your mouth is watering as you read this, then go for it. Because these sandwiches taste as good as they sound.
Stulle & Stoff
The café on the corner of Preysingstrasse and Metzstrasse changed hands again in February 2021. Since then, you can enjoy a good sandwich not only when visiting your grandparents, but also at Julia's Stulle & Stoff. And to suit every taste. For fans of hearty cuisine, there are rolls with Leberkäse and pickles and for those who prefer less traditional Bavarian creations, for example foccacia with wasabi mayo, oyster mushrooms, red cabbage and coriander.
The oriental delicatessen Palast an der Münchner Freiheit actually has sandwiches on the menu. We didn't know this for a long time, but after trying them, we had to include them in the article. The sandwich that bears the restaurant's name, for example, consists of smokey turkey, camembert, piquillo, fried egg, bacon and gherkin. For a veggie option, go for the foccacia with goat's cheese, baby spinach, eggplant and fried egg. No matter what you choose: It's perfect for eating outdoors at Wedekindplatz.
We like Pini because it is very uncomplicated for a café around Gärtnerplatz. The regulars know what they're getting and that includes really good, simple sandwiches. Take the Panino Margherita with rocket, tomato and mozzarella, for example. For meat lovers, you can add farmer's bacon or Italian salami. Get one and then maybe go "people watching" on Gärtnerplatz.
There is actually a snack bar in Munich that specializes in sandwiches. It's called Ringlers in the old town. Have you never heard of it? But you've probably walked past it before, because it's located in the busy Sendlinger Straße. Ringlers advertises with sandwiches that are only available from them. The selection ranges from the "Mediterranean" version with salsiccia, rocket, tomato and homemade barbecue sauce to the "Bavarian solution" with crispy pork belly in a pretzel roll, spicy coleslaw and lime chili mayo. Of course, there is also a vegetarian option: grilled zucchini, goat's cheese and barbecue sauce in an organic Alsatian roll.
Marina Bröckelt's stall is a real original at the Viktualienmarkt. She has been selling the finest handmade Italian specialties under the name Marina's Feinkost since 1987. One thing that has never changed over the years is the stable selection of sandwiches. The "Trüffelsau" with lots of truffle pesto or the "Auf die Faust" sandwich with gorgonzola dulce, walnut, rosemary ham, rocket and fig mustard are particularly eye-catching. If you can't make up your mind when you visit the stall, ask Marina for advice.
