Where to Eat in Berlin
Whatever you’re craving, you’re likely to find it in Berlin. Head to Monsieur Vuong for Vietnamese food in Mitte, which has great spring rolls and tofu, while UMAMI in Kollwitzkiez has a lovely traditional seating area as well as a tasty menu.
For ramen dishes, go to Cocolo Ramen in Kreuzberg. This cosy joint tends to fill up quick though, so try and get there nice and early. If you fancy some Thai then Taleh Thai is a great option, with some exceptional green curries and a large tea menu for you to choose from. In the summer months, an unofficial Thai food fest happens in Wilmersdorf in Preussen Park every Sunday. Vendors show up to make homemade food on the spot, and for just a couple of euros per plate.
Prater Garten is Berlin’s oldest beer garden, and not only does it have cheap beers, it also has traditional German foods like sausage and schnitzel. You can try Bavarian dishes at the Schwarzwaldstuben, including Sauerbraten (a type of pot roast) and Tafelspitz (boiled veal or beef with horseradish or minced apples). For more high-end gourmet German food, go to Volt in Kreuzberg.
If you’d like an international foodie experience, head to the street food event every Thursday at Markthalle Neun. There are lots of delicious things for you to try, including Maru Takoyaki’s Japanese Tako-yaki, which is a ball-like snack filled with octopus, tempura flakes and cabbage. If you’re a bit of a sweet tooth, don’t miss the cheesecake from Five Elephants. It sells out quick for good reason.
