Not technically a restaurant so largely overlooked by tourists, this friendly German kneipe (pub) is a well-kept local Berlin secret. The reliable, home-cooked, regional German pub fare is served in laid-back and occasionally boisterous surroundings. Those opting for a full sit down meal can be seated in either one of the large back rooms, while snacks can be taken at the bar. But don’t arrive hungry; the wait for food can be long, bearing testimony to Oderquelle’s claim that all dishes are made from scratch. Once an art gallery, this German take on the gastro pub has existed in its current state for the past 10 years. While other ventures along this street come and go, Oderquelle remains a safe bet. Lovingly weathered, the long wooden pews have seated bums of all shapes and sizes; from burly tattooed truckers to dapper media bods tired of self-conscious ‘szene’ spots. Ideal for diners who prefer a pint of beer to a glass of wine.
