A taste for the world
What are the must-try dishes in China? How should an authentic African cuisine taste? With that in mind Deliveroo and I designed a list of the best 59 culinary destinations in Berlin.
These restaurants will wow you with their recipes. Today everyone is interested in some kind of unique food experience when they travel or in everyday life. We help you to experience different cultures through the cuisine without traveling.
Recently I designed a culinary BertaBerlin map with Deliveroo, crafted so you can explore the taste of 14 countries in Berlin with ease. We created a culinary tour through the regional flavors of Africa, China, India, Thailand and many more. From cutting edge restaurants to traditional tastes of India’s exceptional culinary legacy - like an amazing Telangana lamb dosa, Chutnify specialties and one-of-a-kind Indian finds that can’t be found anywhere else. Here you have a sneak peek of the map, I selected my favourite 11 restaurants from 11 different countries in Berlin.
1) A taste of Africa
Sahara Imbiss serves one of the best Falafel in Berlin - authentic and extremely delicious! I highly recommend the falafel topped with halloumi and a fantastic tahini sauce. This is perfect for a quick lunch break.

"The American way of life" is still a dream for many people. But at least foodwise, you get lucky in Berlin. Burger Art offers traditional dishes like spare ribs, tasty burger and steaks. They really provide authentical ambience that you see in American movies with real American food.

3) About Peking Duck
Good Friends is considered Berlin's best Chinese restaurant. They offer truly authentic Chinese dishes from soup to dessert. Note the ducks hanging in the restaurant’s window if you’re wondering just how authentic. I loved the sweet-and-sour pork or fried rice with shrimp.
