The French doors open this Sunday at the Quarré restaurant to sell popular street food specialities
Starting next Sunday, the otherwise crowded terrace of the Quarré restaurant at the Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin will be transformed into a culinary pop-up line for the coming weekends. For this purpose, the five large French windows of the restaurant will open towards “Unter den Linden”, from which interpretations of local and international street food specialities will be offered to take away:
In the first window, the round begins with the sale of the famous Lobby and Quarré classics: the “Adlon Döner” in the noble version with veal loin fillet strips and truffle cream for 9 euros, and the “Adlon Currywurst” including gold dust for 6 euros.
The second window is followed by a popular bestseller from the hotel’s own Sra Bua restaurant: Bao Buns, the steamed dumplings filled with radish, carrot, Chinese cabbage, spring leek and coriander and optionally with plucked Thai duck or veggie chicken, at 7 euros each.
The highlight of the culinary pop-up line is certainly the third station. Here you get two Michelin stars on the palm of your hand, because Chef Hendrik Otto is responsible for this gourmet snack: Crunchy Chicken with coriander mayonnaise, lemon, spiced potato in a herb mixture for 12.50 euros.
Those who prefer sweets can take away fresh waffles and crêpes from the fourth window, optionally with sugar and cinnamon, apple compote with Eierlikör (egg nok) or with the homemade white and dark chocolate spreads and banana slices at a price of 4 to 6 euros.
The last station tempts with ice cream specialities. In addition to well-known varieties, especially the own creation “Frozen Coffee Toffee”, consisting of frozen coffee with whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a flambéed marshmallow, is worth a taste: the cup at 5 euros.
Michael Sorgenfrey, Managing Director of the Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin, explains: “With our pop-up line directly at the Brandenburg Gate, Berliners, who will hopefully be drawn outdoors more often now that temperatures are consistently warmer, can look forward to a special experience. We are opening our doors to a small, magical universe that aims to reflect the culinary diversity not only of our restaurants but also of the city of Berlin. For my team, this action is also a motivational boost. It’s feverish to brave this challenging time and be able to host weekenders a little bit again.”
For the time being, the pop-up line at the Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 12 – 7 pm.
