We had to wait a long time, but finally the asparagus season has begun. Now the restaurants in Berlin and the surrounding area conjure up all kinds of fine dishes from the popular "Spargel" vegetable. From the classic "asparagus with ham and potatoes" to asparagus as soup, casserole, salad and completely new creations, the delicious range extends.
