Tiergartenquelle couldn't be more German if it tried. In a city full of hipsters (at least in the east), this German restaurant couldn't care less about the next trend. Instead, its classic German menu features all the foods too fattening and heavy for the vegan-friendly restaurants in Kreuzberg and Prenzlauer Berg.
Located underneath a train station in the middle of Berlin's biggest city park, Tiergarten, the restaurant is crowded in the evenings with families and older Germans enjoying a beer. The large communal-style tables make this restaurant great for groups, and the huge portions (and we really mean huge!) are affordable. Plates are almost certainly bigger than your head.
The restaurant serves everything from spaetzle to schnitzel, and even has some vegetarian options. Tiergartenquelle is open for lunch on the weekends, and for dinner/drinks at 4pm during the week. Sometimes there is live music entertainment (along the lines of accordions).

This popular restaurant can be found under the S-Bahn tracks in central Berlin, inside the Tiergarten. It’s a perfect stop after exploring the vast park. The authentic Berlin favorite serves their own beers and huge portions of German dishes. There is live music on the weekends and an outdoor beer garden in the summer.
