With a name like Parker Bowles (reference to Isherwood’s character on the book Goodbye to Berlin), this place was destined to win our hearts from the start. Located on Moritzplatz it is very conveniently located close to the U8 Ubahn stop (Moritzplatz). This asian fusion restaurant is a great stop before exploring Kreuzberg (during the day or at night).
The extensive menu is seasonal so it changes quite a bit during the year. Go for the seasonal dishes and you will not regret it. Although they claim an asian influence, they do serve German inspired dishes. The dishes are beautifully presented and the portion sizes tend to be on the small side. If you are a bit hungry make sure to order an appetizer or dessert. Or both! They do serve breakfast dishes daily up to 6pm! In the last few months Parker Bowles also started a quite stellar Sunday Brunch event called Papi Crunch.
Recently, it seems service has suffered a bit. It has been ok at best. If you are looking for efficiency, this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you don’t mind a few service hiccups, the food is still yummy and worth a try.
The ambiance is casual cool during the day and it gets a little dressier at night, but still somewhat casual. Local professionals are the main patrons during lunch time. At dinner time we have encountered a more mixed crowd (still on the cool side). The decor is beautiful and modern with very discreet asian elements.
Check out the sensational Modulor store next door, a craft megastore (paradise for artists really), if you happen to go during normal business hours. Otherwise go for a party next door at Prince Charles or walk along the bar/night club lined Oranienstrasse.
What we like to order at Parker Bowles : Jeon (Korean pancakes) with pulled pork (menu changes frequently, though).
