One of the best butcher shop/snack bars in town
The Fleischerimbiss, the butcher shop-snack bar, is what you could call a bastion of democratic food. It’s the antithesis of a gourmet food truck. It’s a Berlin institution – practically every neighborhood and sub-neighborhood has one – a place where workers and students and taxi drivers go to get very full for very little money, where home cooks buy non-supermarket meat for a reasonable price. Blood sausage with sauerkraut, meatballs with capers, Eisbein (pork knuckle) with sauerkraut, chili con carne, Bratwurst, goulash – the menu is comfort food, East German style. Domke is one of the better Fleischerimbiss(es) in Berlin. They’ve been around since 1990, and the descendants of Nino Domke are still running the place, keeping prices low despite the rising rents in the neighborhood.
