Sitting a half-block from the Viktualienmarkt, the city's upscale open food market, Zedelmayer attracts a cross-section of locals for its renowned ultra-Bavarian cuisine. The bustling place has little pretense and not much in the way of decor, but its weisswurst (mild veal sausage) is among the best in Munich—just make sure to eat it with a chewy pretzel (baskets of them are on every table) and wash it down with a wheat beer. And all of this must be done before noon, if you want to pass muster with the other patrons. The menu features the usual schnitzel and rich egg-noodle spätzle, as well as Briesmilzwurst, the house specialty, tender fried black-and-white patties made of calf's brain and spleen. It's delicious, but don't say you weren't warned.
