Korean in Berlin: Ixthys

First things first, this small deli is making no secret of its religious alignment. Some might be able to ignore this, but I found it rather weird eating my Korean Bibimbap in a room wallpapered with hand-written bible quotes from floor to ceiling. Or choosing my dish from a menu that is framed with incredibly long missionary essays telling you the best nurturing happens through the love of Jesus.

Nevertheless, Ixthys (which is actually the Greek word for fish, a Christian symbol) is almost always recommended when talking about Korean food in Berlin. The very small kitchen is run by two Korean women preparing traditional Korean dishes like Bibimbap and Bulgogi in home-made style. The food is good, plenty and fresh and this small diner is certainly recommendable for when you’re in the area and want a quick bite. Nothing more, nothing less.
