Munich: Rubenbauer Gennuswelten for dinner

After a long travel day and getting to the hotel around 8:00 pm, we didn’t think of having dinner until almost 10:30. We went through Yelp and narrowed our choice to a traditional Bavarian restaurant, located on the other side of the Central train station, which was just across the street from our hotel.

We decided to cut across the train station when we came upon Rubenbauer Gennuswelten, a food court that’s inside the train station. The one sign that caught our eye was them selling Döner and a soda for €6,50.

What’s a Döner?

Döner kebab is a Turkish dish made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie, normally lamb but sometimes beef, or chicken.

The sliced meat of a döner kebab may be served wrapped in a flatbread such as lavash or pita or as a sandwich instead of being served on a plate. It is a common fast-food item not only in Turkey but also in the Middle East, Europe, Canada and Australia. Seasoned meat in the shape of an inverted cone is turned slowly against a vertical rotisserie, then sliced vertically into thin, crisp shavings. On the sandwich version, the meat is generally served with tomato, onion with sumac, pickled cucumber and chili.

We first tried a Döner in Berlin, and also had one in Anaheim at DönerG. Both excellent in their own right. How could we pass up a Döner plus a soda for €6,50? So, we ordered 2 of the Döner-menü and added an order of their Pommes XXL (fries) for €2,95, and found an evacuated table.  It may not be fancy, but THAT is what I call deliciously yummy eats on our first night in Munich. The food court is located at: Bahnhofplatz 2, 80335 München
