What of these places in Berlin??

j.jessica.lee | Aug 22, 2010 04:23 PM

Hello Berlin CHers!

I'm here for two weeks and have been reading all the posts written about Berlin. I'm loving it here already. I've been so far to I Due Forni (not crazy about it, especially with all the amazing pizza we have in NYC), Backerei Balzer (wonderful pfannkuchen, going back to try more stuff; will go to Konditorei Krautzig tomorrow morning for pfannkuchen and other sweets), Hasir (had middling expectations, very pleasantly surprised), etc.

I want to try a very hearty "German" place that does the classics really well, like wurst, knoedel, rotkohl, kaiserschmarrn, sauerbraten, you know, that kind of thing! I was considering Engelbecken, Marjellchen, among others. What do you all think? I am going to Zum Schusterjungen with a friend on Wednesday as he really wants to go.

I also am interested in Henne, Qadmous, original Cafe Einstein, more middle-eastern, more Turkish, great cakes and German pastries (Konditorei-esque rather than patisserie), great ice cream, great German bread (I got a small loaf from Beumer and Leuter and it is really dense and chewy and lovely!), great smoked and cured fish, great sausages, etc. Nothing fancy. I want to have what Berlin does best, so no sushi, not too interested in Italian, definitely no French as I will be in Paris for a week after this.

Thanks in advance for all your help. This is a really nice board!
