Don’t judge this place by its upscale look! As a matter of fact, Long March Canteen has one of the most authentic Asian menus in Berlin. You risk being kicked out if you ask for sweet and sour pork – but chicken feet or jelly fish? You’ll find it here. Go on, dare yourself with a truly Asian experience that is not often found in this region.
Sushi for a better world
Don’t you agree that eating sushi makes you happy? The fresh, sticky bites, distinctive taste of the fish and salty sauce… the Kuchi restaurants contribute greatly to this kind of experience with their wide variety of excellent sushi. Their fantastic menu includes creations like Crispy Asparagus Maki and a huge selection of exotic teas – make sure not to miss it! Reservations recommended!
Saigon Street Food
This place will satisfy your craving, no matter how hungry you are: District Mot is growing more and more popular with locals. You can combine your platter from a selection of smaller bites or head straight for an irresistible pho noodle soup. Check out the menu beforehand to help you deciding!
Good dim sum dumplings are hard to be found, especially outside Asia. They have to be sticky, but not too much, with a bit of bite to them, a savoury filling and a tangy sauce… Lecker Song in Prenzlauer Berg offers the full package and is thus praised by Berliners for bringing the Dim Sum experience to this city. They don’t have a website – but they don’t need one either! Bring a bunch of friends to share the food with so you can try more varieties!
If you miss those very unique Korean flavours while in Berlin, Ixthys can help. Rumour has it that the place is run by a few Korean widows who are likely to ask you whether you believe in Jesus. Regulars claim that by answering “yes”, you will enhance your visit by far! Find out for yourself! (Also, this place is known for its fabulous bibimbap.)
In a hurry? Our bitemojo partner Côcô bánh mì, a Vietnamese gourmet deli, prepares fresh baguettes in true Asian style. But apart from this signature dish, you should also try their pho soup and rice bowls. Find out more on their website.
As you can see, you won’t have to miss your Asian favourites while you are here, after all, there is almost no dish you won’t find here. So go on, indulge in this exotic foodie adventure and find out what this different has to offer.
