Transit Berlin Mitte

Transit Berlin Mitte Not so hidden away on busy Rosenthaler Str. in Berlin Mitte, Transit is great for lovers of food sharing and a young, hip(ster) crowd. The menu comprises a wide range of savoury Southeast Asian tapas, with dishes like the Party Girl consisting of fresh and spicy green papaya salad, or Catch The Fish made of yummy crispy shark catfish filet with red curry, coconut milk and thai basil. Just writing about these beautiful dishes is making my mouth water.

Transit Berlin Mitte Paul and I ordered about 8 of the little bowls (Transit also serves a somewhat smaller variety of big bowls if you fancy a single main dish instead of several tasters), and each of the dishes we had ordered was expertly seasoned and bursting with all sorts of amazing flavours.

Transit Berlin Mitte At 3€ a pop, these little bowls of fresh, homemade and MSG-free goodness are not only a real bargain, but perfect for everyone, who wants to try Pan-Asian cuisine for the first time. And the best part? Although the menu looks pretty meaty, vegetarians won’t be left hungry either. All but three of the meat dishes can conveniently be ordered with tofu instead.

Transit Berlin Mitte In combination with the fast and super friendly service – although the restaurant was bursting full with a big queue at the entrance, we never felt pressured to leave as quickly as possible – I’d say Transit is a winner! Oh and did I mention the good-looking staff?

      It’s not that fancy actually 😉 Haha..I wish I could take credit for the pictures, but I can’t. I didn’t bring my camera when I went, so there aren’t any pictures of the good looking staff 😀 xx

    This post is making me hungry! Would love to visit Transit

    once I make another trip to Berlin. Do they do dessert?



    • Jasmin

      Hehe…you should definitely have a bite at Transit when you’re in Berlin. They do desserts too, but I wouldn’t recommend them. I was a little underwhelmed by the two desserts I tried…
