Kurfurstendamm 134, 10711 Berlin, 10711 Berlin, Germany
Located in the west side of Berlin. It had a very modern decor and tranquil atmosphere. I was kind of surprised to see the restaurant completely empty which was on the very busy street of Kurfürstendamm. There was quite a bit of pedestrians walking by, so I wondered if the service or food was bad, or that Germans weren’t accustom to Korean cuisine.
Having grown up where you’re surrounded by Asians who spoke their native tongue (be it their Asian language or English), but never German, it was an interesting experience. I tried my best to say some things in Korean…at least I was able to order my dish saying 이것 주세요 (This please.) as I pointed to the menu. LOL…hahaha…
The dishes’ portions were small, but good. The banchan (side dishes – typically you get small 4-5 side dishes with kimchi, potato, salad, cooked yam, etc that you can eat with your meal) which are usually free to refill in Vancouver, were extra in Hanok – or perhaps in Germany…
The server could tell I was a foreigner, and gave us two refills for 2 banchan at no extra cost heehee
It was interesting to go to an Asian restaurant in Germany. I’d recommend it to anyone who’s craving Korean cuisine to those craving some Asian taste.
Bare restaurant, but decorated really nicely
Asian food in Germany!
