Quiche and salad at bistro Bichou in Neukölln

French Bistro in Neukölln: Bichou

I’m not a quiche-person. One too many times, I was served dried out, overly eggy mixtures with small bits of veggies on top of a bland pastry in a café. And I bet you’ve had that experience too – quiche is the lazy cook’s excuse for lunch. But it actually isn’t – the pastry can be tasty, buttery, and crunchy, the filling bursting with flavors, melting in your mouth. And this small gem in a Neukölln side street ist very, very good at exactly that.

Seriously: The Best Places to Eat in Berlin Right Now

In celebration of the relaunch of the map of this very blog, I decided to write “one of those articles”, a boiled down list of current favorite places to eat in this very city. Because of course these are the questions I receive the most: What’s your favorite restaurant? What’s the best place for sweets? Where do I get the best brunch? What’s the best ice cream? And yes, I do have answers. Very personal, subjective ones, that is. So this is not a final list, nor one that claims to be exhaustive, or timeless. I’ve only added brick-and-mortar places, no pop-ups, no trucks, no supper clubs. And there’s no hierarchy. But seriously, if I had to tell you 10 of my favorites, these are it.
