Plenty Of Fish In The Sea

Where Berlin - - DINING -

Berlin is not ex­actly a coastal city, but with the ocean a mere 250 kilo­me­ters away and lots of nearby rivers and lakes teem­ing with fresh­wa­ter fish, this city has adopted the rich seafood tra­di­tion of the sur­round­ing re­gions. To taste the de­li­cious bounty of re­gional, sus­tain­ably caught seafood, head to Glut und Späne. This small, in­de­pen­dent fish smoker is housed inside Kreuzberg’s Mark­thalle Neun, a 19th- cen­tury mar­ket hall that has been re­vi­tal­ized in re­cent years into one of the city’s most popular culi­nary des­ti­na­tions. Of­fer­ings at the Glut und Späne lunch and snack counter in­clude gravad lax cured sal­mon, smoked mack­erel, Peru­vian- style ce­viche, lob­ster rolls, and crispy fried fil­lets sand­wiched be­tween bread. Or set­tle down at one of the mar­ket hall’s ta­bles to en­joy North Ger­man spe­cialty Mat­jes, brined her­ring served with onions and hefty rye loaf. Time your visit to coin­cide with the thrice- weekly farm­ers’ mar­ket inside the hall and you can stock up on other de­li­cious treats while you’re there.
