Abstract:
The memory of his first Munich experience encouraged the author to return to where he had discovered the German meat dish. Recollection of his recent visit included the bar that inspired Charlotte’s Olde Mecklenburg Brewery’s design. His bratwurst experience included a farmer’s market that resembled a farmer’s market in Davidson, albeit two centuries older. In sum, the second Munich experience left him hungry for more than the bratwurst he could not find back home.
