Korean in Berlin: Madang

This recommendation comes with a bit of a catch, because this is not a place you can just go and order anything. Some items on the menu are delicious, some are surprisingly bland. And while I am usually the first to rule a place out because of inconsistency, the dishes that are made well, are so good, you won’t find them anywhere else in Berlin… Like the Doengjang Jigae, a stew made of Korean fermented soy-bean paste.

Lunch in Kreuzberg: Hallesches Haus

Hallesches Haus, that gem in the wastelands around Hallesches Tor, just opened their shiny and bright new restaurant area. Twice the size of their shop and beautifully lit by a skylight, it’s obviously as beautifully decorated as the rest of the shop: Prouvé lamps hanging over giant Nuts & Woods oak-steel tables, many thriving succulents on used wooden sideboards, tiled floors and speckled enamel lights. With the new space comes a full, open kitchen, where they are preparing simple yet delicious lunch bites, sandwiches, cakes and cookies.

Veggie Burger in Berlin: Ban Ban Kitchen

There are certain moments in one’s life, where all you want is a delicious Korean burger, a portion of Kimchi fries and an ice-cold ginger beer. You know what I’m talking about, right? Lucky us, there’s a source not too far away: the very well known diner Ban Ban Kitchen on Hermannstraße is serving exactly that. (And thanks to that, now also part of our beloved veggie and vegan burger guide.)
The place is not more than a tiny take-out with some wooden benches and shaky metal stools in front, however, it is charming and beloved, thus always having a line. We went for a soy-bulgogi-burger with cheese and a portion of generously kimchi-ed fries with even more goujoned soy and plenty sauce. Not to forget the intense ginger beer fresh from a can. Just making the perfect, fast-food Sunday dinner.
