I have been meaning to write a review of P. Korn for a long time. I have been there twice now, the first time I went there Packing my Suitcase didn’t even exist yet, so I didn’t bother taking pictures. However, last month I went there again only to prove how amazing the food of this place is.
Pfefferkorn or P. Korn is a tiny restaurant located in Munich, where steaks are the highlight. The owner, also the chef, is Austrian, a very talented and friendly person who makes sure to greet every client. He is the one who brings the starter and the digestive drink at the end, and who always makes sure everyone is happy with their meal.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is cosy and chic. It seems to me that the place is small on purpose, since the chef prepares each dish by himself especially for each client. With only a few tables, reservation is a must.
The first thing to be noticed on their menu is a list made especially for people with food allergies. The list contains the ingredients used and a letter for each of them, so for example, if your chosen dish has a G written on the side, it means it has lactose. The problem is that apparently they only have the menu in German.
I never forgot the taste of the steak from my first dinner at P. Korn. Butter melting on the meat was certainly something not to forget. So I was very excited to go there once more, and I was surely expecting to eat nothing but a great steak.
When you don’t order a starter, the chef brings you a little something. That day, his choice was cow’s tongue! Yup… I certainly didn’t want to try it, but I did it. If you don’t think that it is a piece of tongue you will be fine. It tasted good, but it definitely isn’t something I would order.
The German in me decided to order a Rhubarb Schorle as my drink, and bratkartoffel (grilled potatoes) as a side dish.
Garlic bread is also a must in this place. What do they do to this bread? I could eat it until there was no more room in my stomach, though I had to save some for the steak.
My chosen steak was the New York Strip (rump steak). 200g of soft and delicious meat. Maybe I became too Germany, but combined with the bratkartoffel it was simply heaven.
On my first time at P.Korn I had no room for dessert, so I didn’t try any. This time I had to, and I ended up choosing the biggest one (without knowing). I had some help to finish it, though I think I didn’t need any… it was simply too good to share. My choice was the Original Salzburger Nockerl.
I had no idea what Nockerl was until this day, but I am glad I made this discovery. It is a traditional Austrian sweet soufflé from Salzburg, which sometimes can be filled with raspberry sauce and served with powdered sugar. Mine was exactly like that plus some lemon zest, which gave a perfect final touch!
When my soufflé arrived it came warm, soft and mouth watering. It was freshly made, and I know that because on the menu there is an observation saying that it takes 25 minutes to get ready. Little piece of heaven on earth; or maybe a little piece of cloud. Yummy.
On both my visits to P. Korn I had the feeling that the chef puts lots of love and dedication into the dishes. You can tell that he loves what he does and that each dish is carefully made for you. It is a place where I would love to return to and highly recommend it to you without hesitation, so far, this restaurant is my favourite one for steaks here in Munich.
Good access with public transportation; parking spot can be difficult sometimes.
Cosy, chic and romantic
The menu is short, but with everything you need to try in this place. Anything you order, you will love.
Mouth watering, great quality and made with love. Simply amazing.
They have from wine, beer, schnaps, juices to soft drinks.
Value for money
The price is not cheap, but worth every penny.
