While schnitzel may have originated in Austria, Germans can certainly hold their own in this realm as well. Here are the six best spots for schnitzel in Berlin, Germany.
While most will happily eat a Wiener schnitzel made of regular veal, the authentic schnitzel is actually prepared using fried cow udder. This version is not quite as easy to find these days, but Restauration 1900 in Prenzlauer Berg is one of the few places in Berlin to offer it. This schnitzel also differs from the rest because instead of the usual potato salad, Restauration pairs theirs with a cabbage slaw in a pink raspberry-mustard sauce. This goes quite nicely with the savory meat. If the whole cow udder thing just isn’t that appealing, opt for the schnitzel à la Holstein that comes with a fried egg and caviar.
