Sometimes, lunch on an office day can be tough – the routine kicks in and we find ourselves at the same spot, day in, day out. The area around Moritzplatz and Oranienstraße is certainly not short in opportunities. However, a little novelty goes a long way and every opening is greeted with excitement. This new kid on the block is taking everything everyone always liked for lunch, puts it in a bowl and serves it with kimchi fries: welcome Pacifico.
There are certain moments in one’s life, where all you want is a delicious Korean burger, a portion of Kimchi fries and an ice-cold ginger beer. You know what I’m talking about, right? Lucky us, there’s a source not too far away: the very well known diner Ban Ban Kitchen on Hermannstraße is serving exactly that. (And thanks to that, now also part of our beloved veggie and vegan burger guide.)
The place is not more than a tiny take-out with some wooden benches and shaky metal stools in front, however, it is charming and beloved, thus always having a line. We went for a soy-bulgogi-burger with cheese and a portion of generously kimchi-ed fries with even more goujoned soy and plenty sauce. Not to forget the intense ginger beer fresh from a can. Just making the perfect, fast-food Sunday dinner.
