BERLIN FOOD TRIP
BEST PLACES TO EAT IN BERLIN
Maria De Jesus | Nov. 26, 2018
Mitte is known for having some of the best restaurants in Berlin. With the history as rich as the food, there is never a lack of dining options for all kinds of meals.
Here are some restaurants in where you can fill up your tummy with some of the finest foods in Berlin.
- Nobelhart & Schmutzig
This restaurant’s tagline is “vocally local”—meaning they refuse to import food from beyond the capital and its immediate surroundings. Sadly, this means no chocolate. However, chef and sommelier Billy Wagner has ways of helping you temporarily forget: he uses neglected traditional methods to create a seasonally shifting menu of bold, contemporary flavors that evoke, impossibly, the authentic taste of Berlin. The outside is nondescript, visible only to those in the know, and you must ring a bell before you are ushered into the eatery: a long wooden table with just 28 seats. Booking is, clearly, essential.
Situated in a former schnapps factory, Eins44 pairs industrial design with fine dining. Proving there’s a place for high-end eating in down-and-dirty Neukölln, the restaurant serves both lunch and dinner. Lunches tend towards the classic while, during the evenings, you can select three (€46) or up to six courses (€73) from flexible menus featuring highly seasonal dishes, such as venison with shiitake mushrooms, radish and ginger, and prawns served with yellow beetroot and vermouth. Wine pairings are recommended.
- Nordbahnhof Two Buddhas
The area around the Berlin North Station is slowly but surely developing into an attractive dining corner. Restaurant Two Buddhas serves light Asian trend food that is good and tastes great. Especially fans of fresh sushi get their money’s worth here. Far Eastern flair prevails in the former station building, which has its own charm in this location and invites to a relaxed meal.
- Restaurant Rutz und Weinbar Rutz
The restaurant Rutz in the Chausseestraße has long become one of the most established Berlin addresses for gourmets. Star chef Marco Müller has already received 18 out of 20 Gault Millau points for his culinary art and reveals his guests the finest German dishes he likes to interpret in his own innovative way. Served in his restaurant on the first floor in a pleasantly purist ambience. For those who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, visit the Rutz wine bar on the ground floor, which also offers German dishes and a fabulous selection of over 400 wines from all over the world.
- Rausch Schokoladenhaus (chocolate restaurant)
“Chocolate is my salt”, it says in the noise menu. The restaurant in the house Rausch is a dream for all chocolate lovers and experimentation. When Wilhelm Rausch opened the shop in 1918, it quickly became a world-famous address for the sweetest temptations. Chocolate artwork, fantastic cakes and fine chocolates lure visitors to the Gendarmenmarkt. And best of all: Today Rausch can be enjoyed with delicious (drinking) chocolates and fine chocolates as well as hearty things – always with a chocolaty detail. The menu includes, for example, risotto of porcini mushrooms and white chocolate and of course the warm chocolate cake must not be missing as a dessert revelation.
In the midst of a wealth of traditional German restaurants in Mitte, Chutnify adds vibrant modern Indian cuisine. This colorful restaurant is famous for its dosa, a south Indian style of pancake served with a variety of fillings, side dishes and chutney. With plenty of options for vegetarians, Chutnify is a popular haunt of Berliners and a must.
The kitchen of the Lorenz Adlon dining room is European inspired, exciting and expressive. The enthusiastically enthusiastic Hendrik Otto has made it his mission to surprise the eyes and especially the palate of the discerning guests.
“My passion is to arouse emotions through my kitchen. The guests should have fun and all senses must be addressed while enjoying, “says chef Hendrik Otto, who has been awarded two Michelin stars.
As Germany’s capital and cultural center, Berlin is regarded as one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Not only does the city boast a rich history, lively arts scene and dynamic culture, it also offers myriad delicacies to help you get a taste of traditional German dishes.
Besides numerous restaurants and cafes, you can also dine with locals and get an authentic taste of what the city has to offer. This is also a great way to meet locals and get local tips!
