Alpenstück German Food

Photo from Restaurant’s website We were super lucky when we first moved to Berlin (in so many ways). The first month we were here we stayed at an apartment in Mitte just a stone’s throw away from ALPENSTÜCK.  We had already read about it even before arrival, but were super thrilled to experience firsthand.

Hasir Turkish Restaurant

Mehmed Augün is the founder of this Berlin institution. And it is said that he was the one to invent the Berlin-style doner kebab.

The menu runs the gamut of many thai and vietnamese dishes and you are sure to find something you like. They

The entrance is not clearly market so look for the neon lights saying “Next to…”. They are located next to Kuchi, a fun and casual Japanese retaurant we also love.
