Food in Berlin: Part 1
This is a food post. Warning: You might get hungry.
Yelp is my best friend, I take reviews very seriously. I guess you can call me a foody, foodie, food-y, or whatever you call it. But I’m not the kind of person that takes pretty pictures of foods for Instagram. (Although, I do.) What I mean is that I do my research, then I take in all that a sharing or having a meal has to offer.
First, I’ve officially been to more restaurants and eaten more food in Berlin than most of my Berlin-born, German friends. Does that say a lot? Maybe this says more:
Currywürst at Curry 36
Johannes sausages at Weihenstephaner Berlin, Hackescher Markt
Cocolo Ramen, Kruezburg, Berlin
Piccolo Pizza, Kurfurstendamm, Berlin
Hodori, Schöneburg, Berlin
The best Korean food I’ve had so far that is reasonably priced.
Pho at Dong Xuang Center
This place is a huge warehouse Vietnamese mall in far east Berlin. It’s definitely an interesting place to visit.
Pork steak at Hofbräu Berlin, Alexanderplatz
An indoor Biergarten and for that original German meat…just too good. Also, some German desserts!
Five Elephant, Kruezberg
THE BEST CHEESECAKE IN BERLIN
German style potato soup at Soup + Salat, Prenzlauberg
Pork meat at Tiergartenquelle
The best biergarten and restaurant in Berlin, seriously. And right next to our dorm!
Omelette at Die Feinbäckerei, Schoneburg
Beef Pho at ManNgo
The best pho noodles I’ve had in Berlin, very authentic! And their homemade banana pudding is to die for…
The bird at THE BIRD
Now you know that I can eat…I love a good burger. Berlin knows how to make meat. MUST TRY!
This urban garden is dedicated to create one dish with ingredients directly from their garden. It’s a great experience! Also, always fresh and healthy. Very vegan and vegetarian friendly, not to mention, in a meat country there is a large vegan population.

The Korean BBQ in Berlin is pretty good. Mainly because the meat is from German, but eaten the Korean way. Per-fec-tion.
Konkatsu at Smart Deli, Mitte
And finally, a Club Mate. The energy drink of Berlin, a Hipster thing to have one around here.
The first like infinite-scrolling food post about food in Berlin. Hope you enjoyed! More to come…because I’m always hungry.
Hello! This summer I had the opportunity to be an exchange student at University of Arts in Berlin (Universität der Künste Berlin). To be honest, my first impression of Berlin was: “It’s so…ugly.” I guess, hearing stories from my friends and family, I expected Berlin to be a bit more appealing at sight. However, after two months, I realised Berlin isn’t a city that offers you much, but saying that I’ve searched through it’s cracks and corners to find that it holds so many treasures! Berlin and Berliners alike continue to surprise me everyday.
These are some photos I snapped when I first arrived to Berlin at the Tegel Airport, taxi ride, UdK Fine Arts building, and the area around my dorm in Tiergarten.
Congratulations to Graphics student, Irene Kim, who will be studying abroad at Berlin University of the Arts this Summer in their Visual Communication program!

Jihong Park (Product Design)
This Fall 2013, Art Center students Jihong Park, Kayla Kee, and Antoinette Adams will be going abroad on Art Center exchange programs.
Jihong will be studying at Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden in the Industrial Design program. Kayla and Antoinette will be the first two students to embark on a new exchange agreement between our Fine Art department and the Fine Arts department at Braunschweig University of Art (HBK) in Braunschweig, Germany.
Congratulations to these students for being selected as Art Center ambassadors abroad! We look forward to keeping up with their lives abroad.
