Hasir (Berlin-Mitte)- Oranienburger Str.4, Tele: 030 2804 1616
During our trip to Berlin we visited a Turkish restaurant named Hasir . Legend has it that the owner of Hasir, Mehmet Aygün, was the first person to turn the döner kebab from a plated meal into a to-go meal (by taking the plated meal and putting it into a bun) in 1971.
If you are in Berlin-you MUST have Turkish food. You simply MUST. Do not leave the city limits without spending at least one meal in Berlin at a sit down Turkish restaurant. Take a trip to Kreuzburg for mom-and-pop offerings or for a more formal experience, try Hasir. There are six locations scattered around town.
Hasir is a very good restaurant, albeit a bit pricey compared to what you’d get at a mom-and-pop type operation in K-berg. Spicy without being firey hot. Garlic and other flavours are present without being overwhelming. Most of the food is baked in a stone oven-including all of the breads, most of which show up to the table piping hot.
