Chutnify in Prenzlauer Berg




Dosas, Chutneys and incredibly delicious curries wait for you at Chutnify. The colorful interior is decorated and super-cosy. The menu comes in between two cardboard wraps and is heaven to any vegan: sweet potato Ragda patty with Masala chickpea mix in a soft wheat bun or Channa Masala rice bowl with a choice of chutneys, spicy, sour and sweet.

Ixthys in Berlin Schöneberg




At this small deli you will be eating Korean Bibimbap in a room wallpapered with hand-written Bible quotes from floor to ceiling. Ixthys is actually the Greek word for fish, a Christian symbol. The very small kitchen is run by two Korean women preparing traditional Korean dishes like Bibimbap and Bulgogi in home-made style. The food is plenty and fresh and very spicy –certainly recommendable for when you’re in Schöneberg and want a quick bite.

Lon-Men’s Noodle House in Charlottenburg

Lon-Men’s Noodle House



A tiny Taiwanese place run by a Chinese family since many years. Here you can't reserve a table, and have to probably wait a little until you get in, but it is worth it! They also have a lot of option off the menu. Just ask for the daily special. I ordered dumplings in chili sauce and a noodles with spicy beef sauce which was luminously red and very spicy.
