For a sit-down dinner of real Japanese food that goes far beyond sushi, you definitely can’t miss Muku in Sachsenhausen.
Well…actually you can miss it, if you’re not paying close attention to the building’s unassuming front. The inside is just as minimalistic, which creates a relaxing atmosphere for the delicious appetizers and ramen soups to come…
Try the typical Japanese gyoza (about € 5) for a starter, and — my favorite — the fresh shrimp and pork spring rolls, dressed with a Japanese mayo-mustard sauce (around € 6).
For the main course there are, of course, a variety of ramen soups. Most are served in a thick broth like the one above, with your choice of meat being pork or beef (€ 10), complemented with a hard-boiled egg and seaweed to round off the meal. They might not look like much, but in terms of taste and portion size they will certainly leave you comfortably satisfied.
The Japanese staff is extremely courteous, and are always around to answer questions about the more mysterious items on the menu. Or, if you’re up for culinary adventure, just close your eyes and point to something randomly on the menu…I’ve played that game a few times at Muku and wasn’t ever disappointed!
