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.

Best of: The 10 Most Popular Food Places of 2014

It’s so lovely to watch Berlin grow as a foodie-city and enjoy its rising fame and the fruits of a decade-long development. 2014 has been an especially good year for food in Berlin, not only because I discovered new favorites and cherished old time loves, we enjoyed great food festivals, listened to kitchen tunes and watched new initiatives bloom, but because you, the readers, have developed an even bigger craving for recommendations and then showered the reviewed places with loads of love making their effort worthwhile. 2015 holds new promises, but let’s rest for a moment and praise the stars of the past year with a list of the ten most popular food places of 2014.

Kitchen Tunes: Ban Ban Kitchen

It’s summer in Berlin, our favorite season in the city! And what’s better than to celebrate it with some nice tunes? Next in our weekly Kitchen Tunes series: Ban Ban Kitchen! Serving so-called Korean ‘soul food’ like bulgogi burgers and kimchi pommes, it quickly became one of our favorite places to go before taking a walk around Tempelhof! Get ready for another summer weekend at the many Brandenburg lakes with 2pac, Kurtis Blow and Solange!

Korean in Berlin: Ban Ban Kitchen

What I love most about the Berlin food scene is that it lets you travel the world just by wandering the streets and stopping here and there for something to eat — whether that means digging into a French breakfast, cherishing an American cheesecake with your coffee, or slurping up a bowl of ramen.

Actual world travel can be just as inspiring: On a trip to Korea, the Berlin-born Korean-Vietnamese team behind Ban Ban Kitchen had the genius idea to start serving Korean soulfood. In their tiny shop in the U-Bahn-forsaken south of Neukölln they now serve a kind of fusion food that is anything but fussy, combining the best of two international (street) cuisines — read: kimchi pommes or bulgogi burgers.
