Food and Communism

Berlin cuisine has strange ways: Last autumn, a  restaurant has opened, it serves food from the bygone Communist era. The strange thing is that nobody ever liked East Berlin restaurants because they were either out of food or you had to wait for a table for hours except you had Western money.

Well, now everybody has Western money, so the Domklause has opened, near the Berlin Dome, where the Palace of the Republic used to be. It serves Kettwurst and Grilletas, which is some sort of bratwurst and burgers, and also Soljanka, a Russian soup made from leftovers (but not bad). The interior is westernized, though. And if you don't like it, you can go to Ming Dynasty at Brückenstraße, Berlin's best Chinese restaurant, also somewhat of a reminder of the bygone Communist era, but different.
