A friendly atmosphere and a big welcome from the hostess, Merle. We ordered the vegetarian dishes and they were excellent; tasty, spicy, filling. We also had the rum and banana and ice cream dessert which was fantastic.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
