This restaurant certainly has a vibe of its own. It’s located in Obergiesing, a much-loved borough of the city of Munich, originally a working-class area which has risen to prominence in the last years. Although, if truth be told, the essence of this area is the people who live there. On Zugspitze Street (fun fact: this is also the name of the tallest mountain in Germany), you will find Attentat Griechischer Salat: outdoor seating lines the walls of the restaurant which is a great setting for looking out onto the quiet street and watching the passersby.
If you go inside, you are greeted by a life-sized wooden zebra. From there you can either be seated at a table or at the bar: here your standard drinks are served as well as a selection of cocktails. But the best part is of course the food. It basically takes salad, ups its game, gives it a nickname and boom: delicious.
Ok, maybe you are thinking, it’s just a salad: BUT it isn’t. It’s filling, it’s creative, it takes the idea of salad to the next level. You can have pumpkin petals fried with rocket and fig. There is asparagus with cherry tomatoes and tomato-cheese balls. There are rosemary wedges thrown in, there’s delicious toasted bread with yummy dips like hummus, tzatziki and pink mayo. There’s a guacamole, and a cranberry chili dip.
Basically, the biggest challenge is choosing which salad to take. And the cocktail to match.
