The Daily tucks in, but barely makes a dent
TO THE mother of my best mates, please look away now, your signature pork belly and mash might just have been trumped.
It was lucky that I and Daily photographer Patrick Woods had empty stomachs, because boy we needed them.
The Bavarian Sunshine Plaza knows the meaning of “hearty”.
In a tour of the Sunshine Plaza’s new 400-seat restaurant, this hungry pair tucked into a traditional platter-for-two, (which really means four).
It was served up as a pork knuckle on mash, pork belly, haus sausages, sauerkraut, red cabbage and bier jus and of course, an ice-cold Lowenbrau on top.
The pork belly was melt-in-yourmouth type stuff, topped with rich gravy and snappable crackling. For a good 20 minutes we felt like German kings, barely making a dent in the feast. I’ve only been to Munich once for a Contiki tour, and this was as good as that. While it didn’t have the drunken yahoos like most German beer halls, this was a place for families and there were plenty around.
But I dare say come World Cup time, this place will throw one hell of a party. To my three best mates’ mother Jenny and her German husband Wolfgang, I must apologise, I’ve at the very least found a rival to your famous pork belly.
