In a very nice corner of Schöneberg, close to Potsdamer Straße; calm, almost hidden albeit in open view, is IXTHYS Korean food.
IXTHYS is barely a restaurant, more like a Korean bistro. IXTHYS is known quite well among the pendants of the Korean kitchen, and its lovely and oddly devoted religious wall decoration makes it curious and charming. Apparently the restaurant is run by two widows. Prophecies and bible verses are everywhere. Beats the usual pastiche decoration of Asian restaurants. The service is exceptionally sweet, too, better yet: the Kimchi is a revelation, and definitely worth a trip outside of one’s own Kiez.
I’ve only ever had the Bibimbap as main course. The menu isn’t too elaborate, so Bibimbap always strikes me as the best choice. It’s deliciously spicy and extremely hot, served out the usual stone bowls. I wouldn’t go as far as saying that it’s the best Bibimbap whatsoever, but it’s really good and worth stopping by if you’re in the area.
