From Hanoi, With Love

Where Berlin - - Dining -

The hot, bustling al­ley­ways of Viet­nam’s cap­i­tal city and its lively street food scene pro­vide the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind District Mot. This dining spot in the heart of Mitte is less hot, less chaotic, but no less de­li­cious than those Hanoi streets. The dé­cor, right down to the plas­tic stools and kitschy nap­kin dis­pensers, is hand­picked to set the scene, as is the ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of tasty, tra­di­tional treats. The menu in­cludes a wide range of small dishes like shrimp-stuffed rice pa­per rolls, spicy green pa­paya salad, and sticky, glazed pork ribs. The se­lec­tion of main dishes is no less ex­ten­sive, in­clud­ing a va­ri­ety of pho noo­dle soups and table­top bar­be­cues with meat and seafood. Feel­ing dar­ing? Go na­tive with ad­ven­tur­ous del­i­ca­cies like chicken feet, crispy, but­tered silk­worms, or fried frogs’ legs. Or skip the worms and just head straight for a sweet Viet­namese cof­fee, pre­pared the tra­di­tional way with thick con­densed milk. Rosen­thaler Str. 62. T: 030 20089284. www.dis­trict­mot.com
