Often in life, the abundance of choices can make you despair. This applies not only to professional and private matters but also to culinary ones. After all, restaurants, online shops and supermarkets offer a wide range of culinary delights.

A new restaurant that skillfully knows how to serve the best of everything tasty - and thus makes the agony of decision-making easier - is Avin in the Glockenbach district. A gem that scores points with its minimalist-casual interior as well as its manageable menu, which focuses on quality ingredients and unusual flavour combinations.

Whether it's Japanese gyoza dumplings, caramelised aubergine (daringly good: spiced with togarashi and miso!) or the cod fillet with beetroot cream and lime dressing: chef Robert creatively puts his penchant for Asian cuisine into practice and gives even classics like beef tartare and feta melon salad surprising new twists thanks to Far Eastern herbs and spices like shiso or ponzu.

Also particularly great: is the wonderfully creamy burrata with poached, aromatic tomatoes from the Munich area, cleverly prepared with a touch of passion fruit sauce and oil from the Asian aromatic herb shiso. 

There are around a dozen dishes to choose from at Avin, and the menu changes every four weeks at the latest - based on the season and what's on offer. The fresh oysters from Brittany with gin-cucumber vinaigrette are a highlight, as is the fillet of beef cooked DYI-style at the table on a hot salt stone.

Avin's exquisite modern tapas concept rounds off the fine and extensive wine selection that co-owner and sommelier Lukas Stepper has put together. "With us, the focus is on togetherness. We combine light sharing-style starters with great drops." So it's not surprising that there is even an Avin house wine - an outstanding Riesling from the Palatinate - and the restaurant also offers a séparée for exclusive tastings and private dinners. 

The passion for wine is also reflected in the name: "Avin is short for avinieren. The german technical term for moistening the glass with a sip of wine beforehand for an even more intense aroma and taste experience," explains co-founder Alexander Glocker.

So if the culinary question "what am I eating today?" is on your mind again, you now know where to find the ultimate in diverse flavours, warm service and a top selection of drinks.
