Located a mere 15 feet from remains of the Berlin wall, Henne Alt-Berliner Wirtshaus has seen it all, she’s been here for over 100 years serving fried chicken and rye bread to everyone from locals to tourists, including JFK – there’s even a signed photograph of him at the bar!
Luckily there was just one table inside that hadn’t been reserved. If you really want to go, reserve a table and don’t do what we did!
Inside it wasn’t exactly what you expect to find in Berlin – it was like stepping into a Scottish baronial home, creaky leather seats, tartan tablecloths, armoury lining the walls – just a little different and probably hasn’t changed in a long time.
Some drinks prices…
…and some more…
Unfortunately we only have blurry photos – blame it on the chicken being so good! We tucked in as soon as it arrived. Mrs Foodie isn’t normally a big fan of chicken skin but she devoured it on this occasion. It was crisp like duck skin, not overly fatty and delicious on a piece of rye bread.
We had a really enjoyable time at Henne and we understand why it has been here so long – a limited menu which they have perfected and stuck to.
+ Interesting decor for Germany!
