If visiting Berlin in the winter, you could crank the heat up in your hotel room, make a blanket fort, and vow to never leave the warmth but a better idea is to head to ChungKing noodles for a bowl of spicy noodles. Between the strong flavors of ginger and garlic, free-range meat, handmade noodles, and copious amounts of chili oil, the food here is unlike what you’ll find anywhere else in Berlin. And even if you’re here in June, these noodles are worth a little temple sweat. The bar seats at the front are nice for watching the open kitchen, but the tables at the back are much comfier and more spacious (so yes, they’re worth the wait).
