We decided to try out some of the Japanese bento places in Berlin. Go Bento can easily been overlooked cuz it's located in a pretty empty street in otherwise lively Prenzlberg. They serve daily changing bento boxes for 10 EUR. Each box is accompanied by some small Japanese side dishes. But actually it's not only Japanese, the owner mixes all kinds of Asian food he kinda favors himself. In our bento box we found: rice balls with grilled chicken on some kind of a barbecue sauce and wasabi, and with fried shrimps with the same sauce and cream; plus pastry filled with onion and carrots; plus spicy home made pickled cabbage.
Enjoying the dessert between the courses - it was just too delicious: a roll made from rice starch and filled with red beens and green tea powder on top.
The team only prepares 40 dishes a day. That means it is all fresh and when they are sold out, they are sold out. No matter if you are Barack Obama, Claudia Schiffer or a neighbor from across the street - for no money in the world would buy you another bento box. The owner said they are working on it but we think they should continue this concept. They're open Wed-Sun 17:00 - 22:00 (or when the food is out)
Oh and keep in mind that they only serve free hot tea. So it's okay when you bring your own drinks from the "Späti" across the street.
