Rocket + Basil review image

Rocket + Basil

Berlin has a couple of Persian lunch spots, but this one is our favorite. The interiors are bright and perfect for a coffee and computer day, an afternoon snack, or a quick lunch. Rocket + Basil is just a 15-minute bus ride from attractions like Checkpoint Charlie and the Topography of Terror - an area lacking many good food options. The daily dishes are always made of local German ingredients, like slow-cooked chicken with jeweled rice and turkey meatballs in saffron tomato sauce. We also love the baked goods, especially their cardamom buns.

This old-school deli counter in Charlottenburg is the perfect place for breakfast or a late lunch - don’t leave without some smoked fish and eel.
