Whilst in Berlin I stayed with a good friend of mine, so to say thanks for the hospitality I let him choose somewhere for a delicious meal out, and Beuster Bar was the winner! It’s part bar – part restaurant with a cosy interior that was busy pretty much every time we went past.
The staff were incredibly friendly, helping out with lots of translations of the menu and making suggestions as to what to both eat and drink, although as it got busier we did have to wave them down to get attention a couple of times. As it’s a bar it has an extensive drinks list including cocktails, but we decided to go for a bottle of wine and were recommended a German riesling which was absolutely delicious (and I’m not usually a riesling drinker!).
We decided to get a range of dishes to share, starting with an asparagus salad topped with a soft boiled egg and dressed in a truffle vinaigrette (€9.5). This was an absolute winner of a dish, with the asparagus served in a range of ways, including some pickled, and the egg yolk providing a delicious dressing of sorts. It was fresh, light, full of texture and definitely started our meal off on a great foot!
Next up we ordered the flatbread pizza (€8.5) which was originally topped with French cheese, speck, onion and herbs but they left the speck off half of it for me and replaced it with cherry tomatoes which was very lovely! The base was crispy and light and this provided an excellent companion to the light salads we ordered along side it. It was simple but still plenty tasty!
We also ordered the Quinoa Bowl (€10) which consisted of avocado, mushrooms, sweet potato, broccoli, tomatoes and plenty of basil! It was another fresh and tasty salad with an excellent combination of vegetables providing lots of colour, texture and flavour to the dish. I really enjoyed everything about this quinoa bowl, and would order it again for sure! Considering how much food we ordered it was definitely good to have a few lighter dishes in amongst it all too!
Bryn ordered the Steak Tartare (€13.5) which was served with salad and bread chips. Obviously this was one dish I didn’t partake in, but it didn’t stick around for long so I’d say that’s a safe indication that it was well received!
Lastly, and definitely not because we needed any more food, we got some of the House Fries (€3.5) which were thin cut, crispy and delicious. They were served with an aioli (one thing I particularly love about Europe!) and whilst we may not have needed them we definitely enjoyed them!
Somehow we managed to make it through all that food between the two of us, which is a good sign for how much we enjoyed it! The very first dish was the standout for both of us, but everything was really excellent. Beuster Bar has an welcoming vibe and was an excellent place to while away a few hours with delicious food and wine.
