dumplings at Chinese breakfast at Shaniu in Berlin Wilmersdorf

Breakfast in Wilmersdorf: Shaniu Café

You might already know the name “Shaniu” from a previous recommendation for Chinese food on Pariser Straße – just now they added a new spot: Shaniu opened a café a couple doors down the road from her restaurant, calling it Shaniu Café, where she serves Korean food (she’s Chinese-Korean herself) plus, every now and then, Chinese breakfast dishes!
I only know about it because one morning I received an excited text message from my friend Ash Lee, obviously her excitement easily caught me, and sooner than later we were both on the way out West, decoyed by pictures of plump dumplings and thick churros.

Still Delicious: Shaniu’s House of Noodles

I’m working on making this one a tradition: going out of Berlin on an Ausflug to Brandenburg, hiking through the forests and meadows to return and have a Chinese dinner with friends. All happening preferable on a Sunday late afternoon, so there’s enough time in the day to still do loads of nothing when I come home, which is very important for my weekend routine. Lucky me, many places in Berlin cater to those in need of a spicy feast, and this is one of my favs, especially because they serve a delicious gluten cake with mushrooms and peanuts, and a great plate of fried aubergine.

Still Delicious: Lon Men’s Noodle House

Lon Men’s Noodle House has been a pivotal spot in what some like to call Berlin’s China Town for years. Although I think a better name for the stretch of Kantstraße that is home to some of the best Asian food places in the city (check Aroma, Dao, Saigon Green, Go Asia, Do De Li & Papaya for instance) would be something like “Asia Street”. Lon Men’s is definitely a major player and a save bet whenever you’re craving hot and heart warming noodle soups on a cold, dark and rainy November night. Which is why it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that there was a line outside on a random Tuesday evening!

Chinese in Berlin: Chi Fan

Unpopular opinion – I’m not a big fan of supper clubs. I like to stuff my face in private without making forced conversations with strangers, thank you. However, once in a while, I make an exception. Especially when Ash Lee holds one of her rare clubs by the name of Chi Fan, serving the bestest Shanghai food ever available in Berlin.

Chinese in Berlin: Da Jia Le

This place has been recommended to me over and over again, however, it took me a long time to try it and I blame that on its odd location – but when friends were inviting me to take a look at their new house around the corner, I used the opportunity and asked them to eat at this place serving Dongbei, Northeast Chinese, food. And yes, it’s worth traveling to this not very pretty part of Schöneberg.
