For some time now, Charlottenburg has been developing into an absolute culinary hotspot far away from Ku’damm, around Kantstrasse, Stuttgarter Platz and Knesebeckstrasse. Duc Ngo sets the tone in Charlottenburg with the Ryotei 893, of course, Madame Ngo and the Ngokimpak, of course, but you can also get incredibly good pasta at Mine / Wine and Schnitzel in the Schnitzelei. For those who are hungry in Charlottenburg, we have 11 classics that always go.
Asian street food, ramen and more at Ngokimpak
The Ngokimpak is the newest restaurant in the large and thoroughly delicious portfolio of Dug Ngo. Where until recently he served vegan and vegetarian bowls (TOKI), ramen, bibimbap, bao buns and deep-fried foods are now available. The Ngokimpak is colorful, loud and playful and brings the street food flair of Asia to Charlottenburg.
French cuisine at Le Petit Royal
Grill Royal, Pauly Saal, Dóttir and now: Le Petit Royal . Stephan Landwehr, Boris Radczun and Moritz Estermann have opened their fourth restaurant with around 50 seats in Charlottenburg. Here, too, it’s decadent to et très francais. The Grill Royal classics meet French cuisine. The menu includes freshly caught fish from the Baltic Sea, oysters, but also modern French classics such as bouillabaisse or coq au vin. Et voila!
Schnitzel, goose and Kaiserschmarrn at Lutter & Wegner since 1811
Those who like schnitzel will love the Lutter & Wegner in Charlottenburg. The restaurant is a real institution and serves good German cuisine. We can’t even say what we like to eat here. Veal schnitzel, Christmas goose or the caramelized Kaiserschmarrn? Preferably all three. Don’t be put off by the white tablecloths and the rather high average age.
Madame Ngo conjures Pho on the table
Madame Ngo conjures up pretty tasty phos for you every day. In addition to the obligatory ingredients such as rice noodles, onions, coriander and – of course – broth, you can choose between quite a few different types of meat. Whether chicken, pork or beef, fillet, steak or balls, the choice is huge. The soups are not cheap, but good meat has its price. Unfortunately, there are not many vegetarian and vegan alternatives – one, to be precise.
Sharing is Caring at 893 Ryōtei
There is no other restaurant on Kantstrasse that fits the phrase “outside ugh, inside hui” better than 893 Ryōtei . Where there used to be a Schlecker branch, today people eat in the dim light in front of the open kitchen. The finest meat and fish, the interior perfectly styled and the atmosphere relaxed and cool. The sashimi salad deserves a 1+ with an asterisk and the portions are perfect for sharing. So here too: sharing is caring. By the way, behind the chic shed is the god of gastronomy, who has already given you, among other things, the Kuchi , Madame Ngo (both just a stone’s throw away) and the Cocolo Ramen in Kreuzberg.
French cuisine in the Paris bar
The Paris Bar is actually not a bar, but a French restaurant, where the food is more in the background. This institution is all about seeing and being seen. Celebrities (from A to Z celebrities) and artists from all over the world shake hands here. The walls are full of paintings, which gives the whole thing a gallery atmosphere. It can also happen that one of the painters is the guy at the bar, dressed in black and puffing a cigar. It may sound frighteningly arrogant, but it is an absolute classic in Berlin and definitely worth a visit. Oh yes, and the food is delicious too. French fries, thin, crispy – and everyone is happy!
Italian cuisine and the most delicious wines in MINE / WINE
It is not easy for anyone looking for a really good and at the same time beautiful Italian in Berlin. Fortunately for all of us, there has been a restaurant since the beginning of the year where we can drown our Italian wanderlust in red wine, pasta, truffle butter and tiramisu – the Mine / Wine . Chef and restaurant owner Mikhail Mnatsakanov brings Italian classics and delicious self-interpretations onto pretty plates. Our favorites: the tortelli with burrata and truffle, the vitello tonnato and the in-house prosecco.
Authentic Asian cuisine at Lon Men’s Noodle House
If you are into authentic Asian cuisine, you can’t avoid Lon Men’s on Kantstrasse in Berlin . A real Taiwanese original is hidden behind a simple exterior. Particularly recommended: the various noodle soups and the dim sum.
Modern interpretation of French cuisine from Tim Raue Brasserie Colette
The Brasserie Colette is one of our editors’ favorites. The furnishings are reminiscent of a small French bistro, and no sooner have you sat down than bread and a jar full of pickles are on the table, which are so delicious that our colleague Maxi would love to have them at home. You should definitely take the artichoke as a starter. For the main course we prefer to eat the tuna or the steak fries and, last but not least, we treat ourselves to the caramel candies. The restaurant is a bit more expensive, but you can also treat yourself to something.
Hearty home cooking and bar flair in the Diener Tattersall
The Diener Tattersall has been around for more than 100 years, which is why the restaurant with pub flair is a Berlin institution. The dark walls are full of old photos of celebrity regulars and friends of the house. The down-to-earth, home-style cooking in the servant is served including a Berliner Schnauze – exactly as you imagine it. Our favorites are the eggs in mustard sauce, the Wiener Schnitzel and the Klopse. Add a beer and a chat with Barbara, the owner, and you forget that superfoods and bowls dominate the Berlin food scene.
Schnitzel and German tapas in the Schnitzelei
Probably the best schnitzel in Berlin can be found in the Schnitzelei . There is also a large selection of German tapas and, on top of that, a welcome beer on the house for every guest. When the weather is nice, the various delicacies can of course also be enjoyed on the spacious terrace.
