(at least in my opinion.)
I think I took just about all my friends in Berlin to this restaurant…at least once, sometimes more. It’s just that good! Thank you to my friend Erica who discovered El-Rief (Schönhauser Allee 47, sort of across from Eberswalder Straße U-Bahn stop) and introduced it to me. A few days ago I took another friend to eat here after a long day of walking, shopping and doing the Electric Slide on Alexanderplatz (there’s proof!).
And you can’t beat the price – 3 Euro for a huge kebab! My personal favorite is the El-Rief sandwich, a combination of falafel and chicken kebab, with lettuce and Rotkohl all wrapped up in warm bread.
I digress. This is not a food blog! (Or is it!? I seem to notice a trend in my posts.) I
I love the atmosphere here – it’s such a nice place to sit outside and people watch, which is basically my favorite pastime ever in Germany. I love being able to look down the street and see Alex from a distance. I never get tired of the sights and sounds of Berlin :)
On a side note, I’m leaving in two days :( I can’t believe that summer is almost over and with it my time here in Berlin. Even though this summer was wayyyy more stressful than last summer, I don’t think I’m ready to say goodbye yet.
