Schöneberg, Schöneberg – oh, how we adore Schöneberg. Not just because it is the gayest of Berliner Bezirke, but because of its surprising restaurants, shops and bars. Due to the classy nature of most of the areas in Schöneberg, you will get an instant dose of beauty poored down your eyeballs when you walk through the imaginary doors of its entry.

I wandered the streets a few Sundays ago in the the most Wochenende Bezirk of all: Friedrichshain. I wanted classy, slightly posh and simply cosy, classic and à la carte for my brunch location. The night before had lasted traditionally long and with a tired and slightly post-intoxicated smile, we came across Kuchenrausch (Rush of Pie). I used to suspect this place is only interesting for their pies and cakes, but Kuchenrausch is actually a great breakfast restaurant too.
A lot of people who come to Berlin ask me what they should eat. Where “the real German” goes to eat and what would be considered typically Berlin-esque that one has to eat when you come to this city. Well, if you do not want to end up in a gory and greasy currywurst bude (shack), you should initally refrain from jumping into any restaurant or eatery that claims to be “German”. Because, German food is not that good. Or is it?
We have already written about the Weinerei. We have also been here many, many times. The Weinerei is a well-known grubby-meets-chique restaurant in the center of Berlin. The most alluring of its features used to be that after eating a four course meal, each guest could choose how much money they were willing to pay. Yet, as of recently, this has changed.
On the Simon-Dach Straße you may not find too many surprising and special restaurants. Chain sushi restaurants, large Indian eateries and a lot of mainstream restaurant locations have started to inhabit one of Berlin’s most popular streets for sauntering. Thankfully, some corners of Friedrichshain have remained the same. On the Krossener Straße, a side street off Simon-Dach Straße, and opposite of hobnob highlight Cupcake, you can find Volckswirtschaft.
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.
