Lately, I’ve been testing ISSES in the heart of Schwabing in Munich. I highly recommend it to all the burrito lovers who are looking for diversity and great quality. From the outside it may look like an underground club that you could place in London or any other big city, but as you get to the bottom you’ll find a cozy restaurant. To the left there is a cocktail bar where you can have a drink while waiting for your table. When passing through one of the arches you’ll find a bigger dining room divided into three.
On the menu you’ll find a great variation and creative versions of burritos. Normal ones were too boring so they invented i.e. a winterspecial with goulash from deer, red cabbage, chestnut cream and cranberries – let’s call it a Bavarian burrito. The owner Moritz Meyn also recommended a veggie burrito with spinach, cheese and a touch of India. Both of them were a bit spicy but so delicious! To top this excellent dinner off we had two margaritas along that they prepare with crushed ice.
The atmosphere is cozy and hip. And who thought that this cellar was once without windows. In fact, it took the owner a lot of time together with friends to break through walls and get the restaurant look the way it is now. But it was all worth it. They’ve been open for four weeks now and it is definitely a good place for meeting with friends! Have a look yourself!
