It’s becoming a tradition that every time I attend a conference or travel anywhere interesting I post at least a couple of places to eat. Perhaps ironically, none of the places I am about to post about serve cuisine that you could reasonable call German.
It’s true – we’ve done coffee and cake – that well known German tradition. In an evening, however, besides our hotel we have been to a Chinese, an oriental fusion place and a Portuguese and Spanish restaurant.
A general warning to those eating out in Berlin – do not take for granted that the place you choose will take plastic – many don’t, and you should at least be prepared to pay cash.
Of those, the fusion restaurant was the first place we ate - Coa. Situated right in Potzdamer Platz it was an obvious choice early in our stay as we wandered around the dominoes of Mauerfall.
If you like noodles, you’ll do just fine here. The cuisine is an interesting mix of Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese and Japanese. The surroundings are stylish, the service is friendly (and happy to converse in English) and the food is excellent. There is a great range of dishes from dim sum to noodles and everything we had was well prepared and tasty.
