To Loc, Berlin, Germany

Wiener Str. 61, Berlin Kreuzberg
U 12 Görlitzer Bahnhof/Wiener Strasse

Berlin offers a large variety of ethnical restaurants, and this medium-sized (~30 inside seats + summer tables outside) Vietnamese snackery is one of my favourites. Tho Loc prepares excellent authentic dishes such as raw spring rolls or beer battered chicken breast with wok vegetables and peanut or mango sauce (~6€) for a small amount of money. The downside is that you might have to queue for a seat during peak hours, and the kitchen tends to be somewhat slow from time to time. Like many places in Berlin Tho Loc is nothing fancy, you drink your soft drink from the bottle and before they enlarged the place in the beginning of this year, you had to sneak into the neighbouring café to use their restrooms. But it’s definitely worth a visit for a bite during lunch or before hitting the road in the evening.
