Where to eat in Berlin; Mitte & Prenzlauer-Berg
In this post we will tell a little about the places we visited in Mitte and Prenzlauer-berg, which after opinion was some of the nicest areas in the city of Berlin. Some of the places we found trough the travel-app momondo Places, which is a really nice travel app that suggests places for you to visit according to the mood your in. We found it gave us a lot of inspiration on our trip to Berlin, but since we’re both adventurous by heart, we also found our own little places while walking around in the area, which we will share with you.
Dudu is the name of a nice sushi restaurant you dudududu need to try – it should be one of the best places in town. We had not made a reservation beforehand, but we were lucky to get a seat in the bar. At Dudu they don’t serve “traditional sushi”, since it is a fusion kitchen with modern interpretations of sushi and other Asian dishes, but we really liked it!
We started out with fresh Vietnamese spring rolls.
Accompanied with a glas of Riesling and a salad with tuna balls.
We also had a roll of ”Tunacado”, which cpnsisted of tuna, guacamole, salsa (not the traditional mexican one we know – another one) and teriyaki sauce. What a combo. This is a MUST TRY. Dudu is apparently known for a “crispy” roll (crispy on the outside). So if you are into crispy delicacies, you might wanna try that one out.
The restaurant has such a nice courtyard.
We were realy into Asian food on our trip, and after having read a lot of recommendations, we decided to try out Monsieour Voung. Both of us have a weak spot for fresh spring rolls, but we went for a Vietnamese salad. And since it was raining “pho” was not bad either, but we regretted that we did not go for the spring rolls since they are our favorites.
We were went to the restaurant for lunch and therefore chose to drink lemonade, but the cocktail menu looked so good and definetely something we will try next time. Remember, that you cannot make reservations at Monsieur Voung, so go early. Dudu is just nearby, so you can always have one of the places as a back up plan
If you are a burger fan “The Bird” is the place to go. Anne describes the burger as “evil in the good way”. It’s a very masculine portion, so make sure to be hungry. Also be sure to make a reservation. If not, you might end in the bar like us, where the chairs are a little too low.
We wanted to visit Platoon Kunsthalle to see some up and coming artists exhibit their creations. Instead there was a market with drinks, light installations and a hipster crowd, who sold out from their personal wardrobes. Steph bought a very nice vintage lace top. Platoon is definitely worth a visit and it doesn’t really matter if there’s an art exhibition or not – it’s cool anyway, and here you will get a piece of the real Berlin.
Just next to Platoon you will find “The Barn”, which is a very popular coffee place that have their own roastery. A nice place for real coffee-enthusiasts. The barista was so nice to give us some samples, because they had closed down for their popular “filter” coffee and we had to go with their espressos instead.
At the beautiful street Kastanieallee you will find a ton of small cozy cafées laying side by side on the street. We could not resist the sight of the many pancakes and had to try them! The pancakes at Glücklich am Park were good and we really liked the place. However the “chocolate” edition was a little too much – and it was difficult to finish the portion – so we’d recommend some lighter toppings. The place is actually not just a café, but also a small store, where you can buy clothing, shoes and accessories. A perfect combination in our book.
