If you are looking for a good Vietnamese Restaurant in Mitte, Berlin, our favorite is the hip and cool District Mot.
Though there are many good Vietnamese Restaurants in Berlin, District Mot is unique because of the interior design. It feels like we were transported to the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. The elements are legit from the streets of Vietnam. Even the waiting area reminded us of our visit to Ho Chi Minh City!
We met with TD’s colleague who was visiting Berlin. When the weather is nice, we like to sit outside where it nice and bright. We usually sit inside when the outdoor tables are full or when it’s night time since it has more of a bar atmosphere inside.
It’s kinda cool that the servers serve the outside tables through the windows. How efficient right?
Their drinks and cocktails here are really refreshing and yummy! Alhough most of the time, we just have ice cold beer.
The Bún Chả Giò is my favorite because, just like in HCMC, they are generous with the leafy greens. This is important because there should be enough lettuce to wrap each roll. Noodles & herbs are also placed inside the wrap, before dipping it into the nước chấm sauce. It’s a glorious mess that you bite into.
The Bún chả is quite a popular dish. It is BBQ pork chops with rice noodles, fresh herbs and nước chấm sauce
The Bao with 120gr beef patty is refreshingly served with Vietnamese pickled vegetables, pickled red onions, roasted sesame, fresh coriander, crispy soybean skin, fresh mango and 3 homemade sauces (garlic mayo based on egg yolk, caramelized fish sauce, red curry sauce).
It’s delicious but my favorite Bao is still Bao Kitchen.
This set up is legit traditional street food vendor set up in Vietnam.
It was getting dark but so we had to take a photo together. The pho is also delicious!
The interiors are a bit dark. When I go inside it’s as if I was in street side stall in Saigon or HCMC. The details are really incredible. Down to the the dusty electric fans, cart and Butsudan.
So many quirky details, even this little nook on top of the stairs that we see as we go down the steep stairs to the toilets.
This is the arrangement behind the ladies’ toilet.
It’s looks even cooler during the day. Check out photos on Berlin Food Stories.
