Mariona, great food, high prices

mariona (5)Mariona is a fancy Catalan restaurant in Kreuzberg, close to Görli. I went there with a few friends for a nice summer dinner and we could enjoy the terrace.

The staff is super friendly, really great service. The menu is changing and quite small, hard to find something when like me you’re awfully picky and don’t like green stuffs. I had the patatas bravas, tasty, the burger, quite good, beef a bit too cooked for my taste though. For dessert, I had the chocolate mousse on vodka-lemon sorbet, excellent.
All my friends were happy, really nice place, just the prices are a bit too high to my opinion.

Fleur de Sel, nice small French café

fleurdesel (2)Fleur de Sel is a nice café in Prenzlauer Berg between Eberswalder Straße and Mauer Park. I passed by this French place a couple of time but only recently did I try it. Weather was nice so we could enjoy the lovely terrasse, the inside looks quite cosy too. The waitress was quite nice and they have a changing offer for meals in addition to the menu.

I went with a friend and shared a cheese/cold cuts plate for 2, the products were high quality, but just for 2 it was a bit small, good to share as a starter or a snack in the day. After all, they did write on the menu: “to share (or not)”. 🙂 So we decided to have a snack after that, I almost had the Quiche Lorraine but they put cheese in it which is wrong (being from Lorraine and knowing the real traditionnal Quiche Lorraine is without cheese, I tend to be an extremist about that, if you put cheese, change the name), but had a nice croque-monsieur and my friend a tartine with goat cheese, she liked it but the amount of cheese was a bit poor.

I also went for the brunch, which is à la carte, you get a soup, a big plate of cheese and/or meat or fish, bread, a dessert, for a very small price. Really worth it!

Prices are ok, not cheap but not expensive either. I will go back for sure.

Neta, Mexican food in Mitte

Neta (1)Neta is a small Mexican fast food located close to Rosenthaler Platz in Mitte. I stumbled on this place while looking for somewhere to eat in the area and it looked quite nice so we gave it a try. It was super clean, the staff was extemely friendly and the concept is nice since you can build your taco/quesadilla/burrito/bowl with meat of vegetable of your choice and the sauce according to the degree of spicyness you would like. The food was good, quality ingredient, tasty maragarita as well and quite cheap.
