Sadly, it can be hard to dine out on a Monday night in Berlin. I know that because I’ve tried several times and found many of my favorites to be closed.Of course, there are loads of imbiss-y places that are there for us, but it’s certainly harder to find a nice place to sit down and enjoy table-service.

While it definitely earns points for creativity and effort, the food has received mixed reviews, tending towards the negative with some of my friends. Until I received a message from Carson Chan, in which he was beyond excited about this addition to the Mitte food scene.
