I'm a regular poster on the UK and Outer Boroughs boards who has just arrived in Munich for the first time ever. I'm looking to have a truly local eating experience. If you guys eat it, tell me about it please. I'm interested in all of the usual German restaurants as well as which Christmas markets are best (I'd especially like something more off the beaten path than Marienplatz.) I will travel ANYWHERE and I will eat absolutely anything. I'm especially interested in ethnic areas and ethnic food; so Turkish, Kurdish, Iraqi, etc are veeeery welcome. I've gotten together a rough list from past CH posts, but I still feel too scattered to get myself together. I had no time to plan my trip because of essays and I've literally arrived without a clue beyond Chowhound and churches.
