I wish I had dined at Tantris on my last trip to Munich, and was kicking myself for not doing so after being fairly disappointed in the places I did visit. I vaguely remember looking at some photos and thinking that the decor may be a bit over the top then rushed to judgement and bypassed it on my to-do list. Not that it doesn’t photograph well, but what I thought was ‘too much’ in photos is just really really cool in person. Such a completely unique dining room that you would think wouldn’t work, but totally does. And despite its very large size manages to feel quite cozy. An overall lovely spring menu! I seem to spend all of my time in Germany trying to avoid spargel, but here I had the first preparation that I actually enjoyed. Fantastic wine pairings including perhaps my favorite riesling in memory.
Variation of tuna with mackerel tatar with white asparagus and yuzu
Red mullet with oak choy, yellow curry-lentil puree and sauce mignonette
Medallion of veal fillet with cabbage, carrots, fresh morels and potato gnocchi
Mousse of brilliant savarin in olive cracker with braised rhubarb
Chocolate dumpling with pineapple-papaya-mango ragout and passion fruit ice cream
