It might not be the ‘goodest’ of foods, but as a Dutch national, sometimes I miss the typical Dutch food from home. Apart from the cheese, the pindakaas (peanutbutter) and pannenkoeken (pancakes), the things I miss the most is the naughty Dutch fried foods. I never realised that a frikandel, a kroket or a berenklauw would be so impossible to get in a country not too far away from the Dutch border. But sadly, the fried meats and fries one normally gets and eats in the Netherlands are nowhere to be found in Berlin. Except for one little magical place in Berlin Friedrichshain, around the corner from Ostkreuz, called De Molen (the mill).

Most expats in Berlin are more than aware of the presence of the eatery and rock’n roll establishment called White Trash. Located on the far end of the Schönhauser Allee, on the Rosa-Luxemburg Platz, it is centrally located in the middle of Berlin Mitte and bordering on Prenzlauer Berg. White Trash is a kind of cult restaurant, with its residence inside a former Chinese restaurant, of which they kept most of the tacky decorations and supplemented it with sparkly lights and other fun trashy objects – ranging from glittery skeletons to old school paintings of dark dogs.
A few steps away from the U-Bahn station Hermannplatz, right in the middle of one of Neukölln’s most lively and popular corners, you come across a great many of cheap-looking standard Vietnamese eateries. One of these is the not very promising yellow banner of Hamy. “Specialities from the Vietnamese cuisine,” it says next to its name. Next door another Asian eatery is trying to lure its customers inside with a quite similar promise. Normally, Hamy would not be a place I would enter for enjoying an evening meal.
Extremely centrally located right in the middle of Mitte, on the crossing of the Neue Schönhauser Straße, the Alte Schönhauser Straße and the Münzstraße (close to the COS shop and the Adidas flagship store), one finds the restaurant Adebar. But Adebar is not just a restaurant, it is also a hotel.
In Berlin Mitte, on the Hackescher Markt, there are many dangers looming during lunch time. Where will you eat? What will you eat? One of the many possible answers lies around the corner from the Münzstraße, where Dolores suprises with burritos for lunch.
Some people do not just like burgers – they love ‘em. I will admit that not irregularly I am overcome by a strong desire to run into an awful fast food chain that sells burgers, fries and the likes and order me a heartattack in fatty foods. We all have our weaknesses – and sometimes
The epic sausages: the bratwurst and the currywurst. Beloved essentials or hated hypes – the wurst is one of Berlin’s ultimate classics. If you are looking for an authentic meat-loving experience, you might want to pop out of the U-Bahn on the Eberswalder Straße.
One of the most well-known and hyped Asian restaurants in Berlin, Monsieur Vuong had to be tried and tested as a good food location. It is always packed with eating customers and when one finally manages to get inside, one is in for a suprising food twist.
Our first facebook fan recommendation that we tested out on a celebratory Friday evening. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Kreuzberg, only a few steps away from the Oranienstraße, you can find many little boutique restaurants. Green Rice, a Vietnamese mini-restaurant, is one of them. Prepare to amaze your tastebuds!
On various Berlin Mitte hot spot locations you can find Vapiano: an Italian food chain restaurant. Not very exciting you say? You might be surprised. At Vapiano you can pick and choose your fresh foods and pay very little amounts of money for doing so – in a surprisingly jet set-ty atmosphere.
