Andy and I continue to explore different cuisines in Berlin with the Berlin International Restaurant Project. This time I’m telling you about our experiences with an Irish pub, a Dutch burger place, and a Japanese restaurant that isn’t sushi.

It seems I’ve fallen a little behind on writing about my Berlin International Restaurant Project. So now I’m trying to catch up on all the ones I’ve been to since I wrote about Turkey and Indonesia. The three I’m telling you about today were all street food of some variety, not traditional restaurants.
Berlin has a large Turkish population and a large number of Turkish restaurants. But many of them are fast food style döner kebab places. Which are great for a late night post-drinking snack, but not exactly the highest quality or most authentic Turkish food out there. So I held out a little longer to find […]
Poland is only an hour away from Berlin and there’s a pretty big Polish population here, so I didn’t think I’d have a hard time finding a Polish restaurant. On the other hand, I was surprised to even find a Peruvian restaurant here. Polish food in Berlin Andy and I go to Poland a lot. […]
Portugal is a country I just have to get back to someday. When I was in Spain for a study abroad program in college, our group took a weekend trip to Portugal, but I honestly can’t even remember where we went. (This was 17 years ago…) A few years ago Andy and I fell in […]
Berlin restaurants have a bad habit of closing down only a few weeks after they open. There’s one place near our favorite Mexican restaurant that was four different restaurants in about six months. Now when we see someplace new, we don’t always rush in to try it. We’d rather wait a few weeks and see […]
Today’s International Restaurant Project includes cuisines I don’t know much about. I had eaten Indian food a couple of times before, but not enough to know what I like. I had never eaten Israeli food. And I think I’ve only ever had Korean food twice before this. So it was an interesting mix. Take a […]
I’m really enjoying my Berlin International Restaurant Project, although I haven’t been to as many new international restaurants as I’d like lately. Since I don’t want to be constrained to going through the country list alphabetically, I sometimes struggle to motivate myself to choose a country or two and find restaurants. But I’m working on […]
When Andy and I moved to Berlin, we each joined a bunch of meetup.com groups that sounded interesting. We were hoping this would be a fun way to explore the city and meet new people, maybe even make some friends. Most of them didn’t work out, but one group we joined recently has some promise.
Finding a new Thai restaurant for my Berlin International Restaurant Project was not a hard task. There are Thai restaurants all over the city. But I was a little more picky about finding a good one than I had been about some other types of cuisines, since we already have a few Thai restaurants we […]
