You haven’t experienced Berlin without getting a late night doner kebab after attempting to get into the berghain.

Germany has one of the top food scenes in the world- including top Michelin restaurants and tucked away kebab shops. It’s laid back, buzzy atmosphere keeps us coming back for more.

Pigeon For Lunch

You walk in through a high ceiling hall, and you quickly decipher that it has resemblance to a school. It’s true! Pauly Saal, was former Jewish girls’ school. It boasts some distinctive features- decorative rockets above the windoes, and stylish glass chandeliers, as well as a communal bathroom that will jot your memory of the layout of your elementary school bathroom. Pauly Saal’s creative menu has one Michelin star. I’d say, try the pigeon!

Restaurant: Pauly Saal 

Address: Auguststrasse 11 – 13, 10117 Berlin, Germany

The Berlin Staple

This is it. The king of kebabs. Mustafa’s is consistently packed with lines of around 30 minutes all hours of the day. During the day strolling through 32 Mehringdamm, you’d think there was a celebrity with paparazzi, but no, its just Mustafa’s queue. It’s been a Berlin favorite for years, holding its legacy of selling a twist on the traditional kebab made with chicken and roasted vegetables. You must get the Hähnchen Döner mit Gemüse (chicken donor)!

Name: Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap

Address: 32 Mehringdamm, 10961 Berlin, Germany

A Real 2 Star Michelin Experience

Facil restaurant at the Mandala Hotel is epitome of class and sophistication. It boasts a creative German cuisine, sophisticated glamor, and extensive wine list for all you winos! The cuisine has al la carte or a set menu with dishes such as duck foie gras, entrecote of chiara beef, amuse-bouche, and seasonal ceviche. It’s a great oasis from the tough streets of Berlin.

Feeling Some Sausage

Germans love their currywurst and so should we! It’s a cut up fried hotdog drizzled with ketchup and curry powder. The curry flavors are are sweet, salty, and sour, and they perfectly balance each other out. It’s simple and delicious, and is another German staple.

Restaurant: Curry Mitte 

Address: Torstraße 122, 10119 Berlin, Germany
