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.

  1. You are kidding, aren’t you? Have you ever been to Kimchi Princess/Angry Chicken in Kreuzberg?

  2. Aww I was just kidding. I love Kimchi Princess, although I still haven’t tried Angry Chicken. That said I should clarify that I meant Korean Food “on the go”, I consider Kimchi Princess a proper sit-down restaurant for special occasions.

  3. Omg this looks great. We have a new bibimbap place open in Frankfurt as well. I wonder if that’s the new “in” food?

    Do they do vegetarian ones as well? It doesn’t look like your one had meat in it. We’re visiting Berlin in a few weeks so we’ll have to try it out.

  4. I know it’s not a street food place either, but you haven’t had Madang? It’s a “proper sit down” but really good! and in kreuzberg! Their bibimbap and naengmyeon were both really delicious, and they have a good number of the usual delicious side dishes out on the table too.
