Best real taste of Europe without traveling: HOFBRÄUHAUS

Best real taste of Europe without traveling

The Hofbräuhaus’s hearty Bavarian food is indeed authentic. You can easily imagine you’re in Munich. There’s plenty of flavor, and while much of it is similar, if you love sausages you’ll be happy with the varied options. The accompaniments are also tasty, but remember — traditional food from Bavaria is not noted for its lightness. It is, however, meat-and-potatoes heaven, served up with root vegetables and gravy. And you don’t need to take a plane to get there. Plus, of course, there are huge steins of beer and an oompah band. —Jon Palmer Claridge
