Trendy Berlin: vegan, burgers and brunch

Berlin’s restaurant scene keeps cooking up new trends. Regional and seasonal produce is top of the menu right now. More and more restaurants specialise in vegetarian and vegan cuisine, while new burger bars are popping up all over the city with fresh and healthy dishes.

You could get a vegan burger, too. Eating breakfast the whole day or a bar only serving dessert - Berlin's restaurants are not afraid to try new things. So give it a try and visit a dessert bar, a vertical farming or one of the other unusual restaurants. 

Berlin cuisine – classic and modern

Where to get the best food?  We’ve put together a whole list of recommended restaurants.

Whether your appetites and explore typical Berlin cuisine. Traditional Berlin dishes are solid meals: pork knuckle with mushy peas, liver of calf á la Berlin, aspic on fried potatoes or meatballs. Well-established Berlin restaurants serve Berlin cuisine classics in a cosy rustic ambience.

Other cooks reinterpret the classics and serve freshly cooked up regional dishes.

Berlin’s refurbished market halls present street food from all over the world and offer fine delicacies. And it goes without saying that you need to try Berlin’s most famous classics: currywurst and döner.

Afterwards, wash down your food with a delicious cocktail in one of Berlin’s myriad bars. For breakfast or teatime, pick one of the many cafés – comfy chairs and fancy cakes or urban cool with freshly brewed coffee.

Culinary offerings from Germany and around the world

The restaurants you’ll find in Berlin’s many districts are as varied as the districts themselves. Do you like traditional cuisine? Then you’re certain to find something in Charlottenburg. Would you like some good-value international cuisine? Then feast your way through Friedrichshain or Kreuzberg. Do you feel like eating some Arab food? In Neukölln you’ll find just the dish you’re looking for. Craving something Asian? Then head to Prenzlauer Berg.

And Berlin has even more besides international cuisine on offer – there is the whole range from down-to-earth German cuisine to top restaurants, such as Reinstoff, that you can find in Mitte. Vegetarians and vegans will also find something they want here, as will burger fans. Even in the TV tower, 200 metres above the city, you can indulge your taste buds with a full portion of Berlin.

The taste of summer

In summer, life in Berlin happens outdoors – with the first rays of sunshine, the cafés and restaurants set up their tables and chairs on pavements and plazas. Take a seat to relax in the shade of a tree in a Berlin beer garden. Enjoy a spectacular view across the city from the roof decks on summer evenings.

Add your voice to the calls of “Berlin ahoy!” in the beach bars, your toes in the sand and the Spree at your fingertips. The ice cream parlours offer the most delicious new creations for every new summer season.
