1. Bejte Ethiopia – Africa's sun at heart


Have you ever tried Ethiopian food? If not, you should try the north-east African cuisine in Berlin. Bejte Ethiopia in Schöneberg will transport you to another world. The ambience alone is unique, with colourful folklore paintings on the walls and music typical of the country. The food is typically eaten with the hands, with richly decorated specialities on the plate. Vegetarian and meat dishes are accompanied by mango beer made from coconut shells. Beware of the heat - it's not for beginners. The highlight of the evening: the traditional coffee ceremony.
