Located in the “Chinatown” of Berlin—or rather the strip of Kantstrasse that happens to host some of the most notable Chinese restaurants and import shops—this tiny hole in the wall Taiwanese noodle shop doesn’t try to compete with their mega-sized neighbors with hanging Peking ducks and the like. Instead, if you are lucky enough to stumble into their bare-bones restaurant, you will find a bunch of veteran Taiwanese women cooking up hand-made dumplings and noodle soups.
Their rich broths and thinly sliced meats that sit atop the steaming bowls are heavier than you’d expect, which is why we are so thankful that they offer small and large soup portions. The best accompaniment is a plate of “Chinese Maultaschen,” which they translate into “ravioli”—why they don’t just call them dumplings will forever remain a mystery. Nonetheless, we can’t get enough.
