Tausend Backroom Cantina

11 Schiffbauerdamm
Berlin , Germany

This clandestine jewel box of a restaurant is hidden behind the bar in a nightclub (Bar Tausend) that is already fairly hidden itself. One of Berlin’s best Asian chefs, Duc Ngo, is in the tiny, open, stainless steel kitchen, sending out Latin-Asian inspired dishes like Peruvian tiradito, tuna tataki wrapped in foie gras, and gourmet pork buns. On par with Ngo’s dishes: the people watching. Make sure to book a table near or after 10 p.m., when the restaurant starts to heat up with a heady mix of Russian models, German art collectors and international socialites.
