The 7 Best Places To Eat In Berlin

The 7 Best Places To Eat In Berlin

Wondering where to eat in Berlin? You won’t go hungry, that’s for sure. The city has some of the best places to eat in Europe from a fantastic mix of cultures.

We’ve rounded up the 7 best places to eat in Berlin; from local markets to 100-year-old ballrooms.

1. Markthalle Neun

A historic market in Kreuzberg, you’ll find heaps of good things to eat here. ‘Street Food Thursdays’ and a regular ‘Breakfast Market’ are just some of the weekly highlights.

A glass bakery and butcher’s shop, a small in-house brewery, a “Tofurei” and a canteen where you can look over the chef’s shoulder makes this a market experience like no other.

So, nun ist es – endlich! – soweit! Der Pantetone ist gebacken, die Schlesische Weihnachtsbratwurst gefüllt, die übernacht gemachte Schokolade runtergekühlt. Ob ihr mit einem kulinarischen Geschenk die Verwandtschaft fernab von Berlin beeindrucken wollt, die Gans schon vor Monaten vorbestellt oder ein Potluck Dinner mit Freunden für morgen geplant habt: Bei uns auf dem #wochenmarkt bekommt ihr noch alles. Heute bis 18 Uhr (einige wie @kumpelkeule sind auch bis 20 Uhr da) und morgen gibt es auch nochmal einen #markt , von 10-14 Uhr. Un unser letztes Adventstürchen machen wir natürlich auch noch auf… —————— Finally it’s Christmas (well almost). Whether you’ll planning to impress your aunties & uncles with some fancy culinary gift or to host a #xmas potluck dinner with friends & flatmates. We’ve got you covered! Our #farmersmarket is open today 'til 6 pm (some vendors like @kumpelkeule are open ’til 8pm for all the meat lovers among you) and we’ll be here tomorrow as well from 10am-2pm! #markthalleneun #kreuzberg #weihnachten

2. The Bird

A New York-style steakhouse, you can’t go to Berlin and not have a meat feast in The Bird.

Everything is made from scratch in house – including sauces – and the beef burgers use meat that’s been dry aged for a period of 30 days, making the beef more tender and concentrated in flavour.

3. Jones Ice Cream

Want something seriously delicious? Try this small-batch cookie shop/ice cream truck (you can order from both their beautiful store and food truck in its rotating locations).

Their homemade ice creams come with large chunks of meringue, cookie dough, brownies and so on… Perfection.

4. Monsieur Vuong

A laid-back Vietnamese restaurant in Mitte, Monsieur Vuong is an institution. Authentic dishes are made with incredibly fresh ingredients and the menu changes regularly, so there’s always something new to try.

They don’t take reservations, but it’s worth waiting for a table.

5. Burgermeister:

A local hotspot, this tasty burger joint is located in what was once a railway bathroom station underneath the tracks and it’s become a firm favourite in the city. Juicy burgers and reasonable prices make it a must.

6. Cocolo:

Berlin’s ramen champion never fails for hot, slurpy-worthy bowls of Japanese goodness. While the tiny Mitte location is the original (and best!), their place in Kreuzberg is better for getting a table straightaway.

7. Hall of Mirrors in Clärchens Ballhaus:

A Berlin institution, this biergarten/restaurant/dancehall is an beautiful WW1 ballroom with 1920s class and a comfort food menu of Weiner Schnitzel and apple strudel.

It’s the secret mirror room upstairs that makes Clarchens a true gem.
