Italian food isn’t limited to pizza or pasta and Kreuzberg restaurant Nudo does a great job at promoting the fine cuisine version of it in Berlin. For only 28€, they offer a four-course menu which changes daily, including a vegetarian one. Moreover, their wine pairing option will introduce you to the world of Italian wines in a very accessible way. Whether you are looking for a place to take your date or are interested in discovering new interpretations of classic Italian flavors, you can’t go wrong with this gem of an eatery.

We’ve already told you how much we love JAJA for a drink, but their food offering also makes this place worth a visit. Aside from hosting regular pop-up or one-off events which involve up and coming chefs, they also provide their guests with a selection of small plates relying on fresh, quality produce thanks to chef Denny Vangsted. Prices usually vary between 6-10€, which means you should be able to enjoy a nice, healthy dinner with a Scandinavian touch for about 15-20€ per person.

Einsunternull

 

 

Focusing exclusively on local product—which means they rely on preserved foods a lot since Berlin’s surrounding farms cannot provide a large variety of fruits and vegetables year-round—Einsunternull currently is one of the most exciting restaurants in Berlin. They received their first Michelin star in the 2017 edition of the notorious guide, thereby establishing themselves further as a ‘can’t miss’ destination in Berlin. While their evening menu ranges from 77 to 117€, you can get a very sweet deal by visiting them for lunch as a three-course meal will cost you 29€ only.

This Neukölln-based restaurant was all over the news when it opened in 2016. The reason? It focuses on “saving food”, meaning it exclusively uses ingredients that have been donated by organic supermarkets, farmers or other shops as they couldn’t be sold because they didn’t fit the industry’s standards. On weekends, they offer a fine dining three-course meal for around 20€. Berlin is known for its forward-thinking approach regarding the environment, and we can only recommend a visit to this place as you’ll help reduce food waste all while making your tummy very happy.

CODA Dessert Bar

 

 

Also located in Neukölln, CODA is another new establishment which made quite a stir upon opening its doors in late 2016. While they pride themselves in only serving dessert, you won’t need to worry about your sugar intake as most dishes don’t even contain this ingredient. Pastry chef René Frank is in charge and used to work for three-star restaurant La Vie in Osnabrück. In terms of prices, you can enjoy two courses for 17€ and three courses will only cost you 24€. We would also suggest you go for the drink pairing option too (10 or 16€) as they pay just as much attention to what goes both in your glass and on your plate.
