Tramin is known as the restaurant that earned a Michelin star without actively seeking it. This is one of Munich's most original gourmet restaurants. Although the concept - quality cooking in a laid-back setting - is not new, Tramin's unpretentiousness has reached almost extreme proportions. Gray, almost bare walls, simple wooden tables, no tablecloths and slightly peeling paint on the windowsills that no one seems concerned about. Wine is served in metal buckets with red and white polka dots - the kind that can be found in almost every garden shop - or in little wooden sauna buckets. There is no classic menu, only four types of surprise menus (for 65, 75, 85 and 95 EUR). Head chef Daniel Schimkovitsch is a mere 25 years old, while his companion acts as host and sommelier, a real life actor with the calibre of a rock star. Although you may not remember everything that was served on your plate a month after your visit, his tattooed arms and unwavering Mephistopheles smile will instantly appear before your eyes.
Tramin's speciality is contemporary, experimental cuisine, where the emphasis is on flavour and freshness with a dose of humour. God forbid that you should suddenly take it all too seriously! For example, before dessert, as a compliment, a banana-filled chocolate cream doughnut is brought to you - a comic reference to policemen in Hollywood action films. The evening gourmet adventure is concluded by bubbly sweets placed in a metal container that has been wrapped in lemon grass, with four pegs placed in the corners. Needless to say, an advance reservation is necessary, as there are few tables and they are always full.
