Schoenbrunn, park restaurant in a beautiful setting

schonbrunn (1)By nice weather I like to go to Vollspark Friedrischain and sit at the Schoenbrunn restaurant for a nice meal or drink under the sun. The waiter is extremly friendly, the setting is delightful, in the heart of the big park, the food is good, the prices not too high.

I recently tried their plate with Austrian cheese and cold cuts, it was really tasty and, even though it’s listed in the starters, can be a real meal for one person, after that I wasn’t hungry till diner. They also have a nice breakfast menu available from 10:00 to 14:00. Very hard to choose from.

Mutzenbacher, Austria in Friedrichshain

mutz1Mutzenbacher is a nice Austrian restaurant in Friedrichshain, between Revaler and Simon Dach Strasse. They advertise “Schnitzel Puff”, which means “Schnitzel Brothel”, poor Schnitzels,… ūüėČ

The place is a mix of traditional Austrian and modern Berlin, a disco ball like Pork head on the wall, waitress in Dirdnl, lounge music, wooden tables,…

Fun thing, I had a reservation, on the table was a beer pint with written Servus (Austrian/Bavarian for Hi) and my name, along with some hearts.

mutz2The menu is written in Austrian dialect, the friendly staff will translate it for you if you ask nicely. The service was indeed great. The food as well, everybody was satisfied. I had a very tasty Wiener Schnitzel from calf, well thin, enormous, with a potatoe salad. For dessert, I tried the Germkn√∂del, this kind of steam cooked sweet dumpling. What I did not know was that it had a jam filling, and I don’t like jam, but the non jammy part was nice.

The prices are really fair, the atmosphere cosy, really a nice spot for an Austrian dinner!

Alpine Brunch at Schneeweiss

schnee6Schneeweiss means snow white, it is also a nice restaurant in the Simon Dach Kiez. I went once there for the Sunday brunch. The whole place is white, it’s very lovely actually.

They have a nice buffet, nicely presented, with some dishes in small portions in small glasses. Hot, cold, sweet savoury, lots of choice. The charcuterie and cheese are very tasty. Also Brezel and Weißwurst for a Bavarian flair.

The staff is very friendly, the brunch is 15‚ā¨ excluding drinks, they also do lunches and dinners, but I did not tried them yet.

Jolesh, a bit of Austria in Kreuzberg

joleshI went to Jolesh a long time ago but never made it back, there are so many places to try in Berlin, sometimes it’s not that easy to go back to some places.

This is a cosy Austrian restaurant close to Görli and Schlesi, prices are a bit high for Kreuzberg but it’s no rip off. The service is ok, nothing exceptionnal though. But the food was really tasty, I had a very big and thin calf Schnitzel, it normally goes with a potatoes salad but they agreed to serve me roasted potatoes instead. I did not try the deserts since there was nothing to my taste (I’m very picky) and they did not have ices available anymore, but some of the guests loved the Kaiserschmarn, this kind of destroyed crepe with raisins, almond and sugar and stuff. All in all, quite good quality.

UPDATE JUNE 2014: They also have a food truck where they serve their delicious schnitzel and more. I tried it very recently and it’s also great. More infos about the food truck here.
