Element Five is an oasis for lovers of Asian and vegan food. Their specialty is small plates, meaning that you’ll be able to try plenty of their creative food options. When I say creative, I mean it! My favourites have to be their Peking Duk (‘duck’ made from soy and paired with a rich plum sauce), Golden Shrimp (seitan shrimp paired with an exquisite tamarind sauce), and Konfuzius Schriftrolle (thinly sliced soy strips assembled with cucumber and leek then rolled inside a pancake).
This restaurant will have you double-checking with the waiter if the food is genuinely vegan. This is part of what makes this place so special: its authentic and inventive nature. It’s modern and creative, while still retaining a homely and relaxed vibe: the perfect painting of what Berlin as a city is.
They are a must for plant-based dwellers in Berlin, although I know omnivores will find plenty they like here too. You can find them in Kreuzberg.
