Let them eat Kimchi!
Kimchi Princess is one of my favorite restaurants in Berlin. It is a Korean restaurant located in Görlitzer Bahnhof and you can come both for a romantic dinner, or just to spend a nice time with your friends. The place itself is quite big, but normally you will share a table with other guests. Do not forget to book a table in advance, as it is almost impossible to get a table at the moment in this place.
I need to advice that Koreans like spicy food, so if you do not like it, maybe this is not your place. Everything is spicy but from my point of view (as a non-spicy fan), it is edible.
In this place you have many food options such as soups, Korean classics and Korean barbecue.
I will go first with the Korean barbecue as for me it something that everyone needs to try at least once in this place. There is a minimum of 2 people to order this barbecue, and the best thing is that it is grilled at the table. The waiter will bring 5 side dishes and rice while he leaves the grill prepared for the meat (also vegan option!) that will come later.
The best one is the Galbi Ros Gui. Slices of Argentinian entrecôte served with chili-miso paste and sesame oil). Believe me, this is one of the most amazing discoveries during my stay in Berlin. It is completely different to other dishes or restaurants. You grill your own food and you eat it at the moment. No words.
If you prefer to order a Korean classic, you definitely need to try the Bibimbap, a signature from Korean kitchen.
The word literally means “mixed rice”. It is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables and gochujang (chili pepper paste), soy sauce, or doenjang, a fermented soybean paste. You can order it with beef and a fried egg, with tofu and a fried egg (vegetarian) or simply with tofu and no egg (vegan). The hot dish is stirred together thoroughly just before eating.
This Bibimbap completely fills you up. Do not forget to order typical Korean beer or some water. The chili-miso paste is quite spicy and you will need some drinks to be able to eat the whole dish.
