The other name of Knofel (in Prenzlauer Berg) is Das Knoblauch Restaurant, litterary “The Garlic Restaurant”. If you don’t like garlic, don’t go there, even the air smells of garlic!
Absolutely everything has garlic in it, the peanuts they gave you with the 1st drinks (well only some drinks have no garlic, my Sex on The Beach was garlic-free), all dishes, they even have garlic ice cream and schnaps! Nobody among us dared try the ice but some had a shot of garlic schnaps, well, just smelling it was awful to me, I like it in my food, but not raw or in my drinks.
I had a very tasty piece of beef, prepared with some garlic marinade along with 2 baked potatoes presented as swans, normally it’s 1 potatoe and broccoli, but I don’t like the green stuff, asked them without and they gave me an extra potatoe. With the potatoes comes some sour cream with herb and, guess what?, garlic!
The service was pretty good, the prices fair, the atmosphere ok, all in all a nice spot for garlic lovers.
