In a city that still seems to think sushi the be- and end-all of Japanese cuisine, it’s a rare treat to come across Nazuna, a quietly popular lunchroom on a rather unsightly stretch of Danziger Strasse
Tag: Japanese Food
This small café is truly Japanese – they serve a big selection of Japanese teas, from Sencha to Hojicha and Genmaicha, and a small choice of food. The perfect lunch option are their bento boxes, that come with a very delicious and gentle Miso soup, a portion of rice, vegetarian gyoza, pickled vegetables and a salad. Its very quiet and certainly rather demure in style, the interior is not fancy, but who needs that when the food is that good. They don’t do sushi at all, and are very wise to do.
My friend Yoske has told me many times to go to Daruma in Wilmersdorf for their Katsudon, and last week I finally made it.
A very good veggie Udon soup is on the lunch menu at (rather new) Japanese restaurant Hashi Izakaya, Rosenthaler Str. 63, 10119 Berlin.
Another great Udon soup with a dainty aromatic broth at a favorite Udon place: Smart Deli.
