Perhaps most people associate Munich with beer, and there certainly are a lot of breweries and beer halls in the city. But don't miss Munich's classic high-calorie everyday cooking. Schweinshaxe is a roasted ham hock or "pork knuckle," and it goes well with sauerkraut and Knödel, which are boiled dumplings. We also recommend Apfelstrudel (apple strudel) and custard or a Dampfnudel (a kind of cream bun with chocolate or vanilla custard) for dessert.
