Markthalle Neun is one of the most famous places in Berlin’s food scene, but in some ways its success is a mixed blessing.
When we came Berlin in the early 2010s, this was the quintessential “hipster” place for us: We’d go and listen to the guy at the next table, boasting how he wasted €200 on drinks last night.
I got the recommendation for Lon Men’s Noodle House from a colleague, and I half expected another hip asian place, with a brutalist concrete interior and incandescent lighting. It was not.
Tommi’s Burger Joint appears to be another Berlin classic. I never came around to try it, but since I went on a burger spree for The Urban Animals, I tried their Ku’damm branch as well.
This place rightfully belongs to Paris: French department store Galeries Lafayette is one of the few flagship branches outside their french home.
The Bird can be summed up by a simple tagline: Good meat. And lots of it.
