Korean food in Berlin. And there comes the next recommendation for Berlin. I’d saved too many great places (see my full list here – yes, I’m part of the Yelp Elite for three years now). I haven’t had Korean food for quite a while and had discovered the lovely Mercosy some time ago on Instagram. Denise and Denise came along, which was the perfect company for a cosy dinner.
Mercosy is a small restaurant, with only a few tables inside close to Kottbusser Tor. They specialised in serving only bibimbaps and various Korean starters. If you’ve never tried bibimbap, it is a rice bowl with vegetables, egg, hot pepper sauce and optionally meat. Bibim means ‘to mix it up’ allowing the full taste to develop.

However, if you’re expecting real authentic Korean food you’re not really in the right place. Don’t get me wrong because the food was good. Mercosy offers creative bibimbap combinations but they’re different than the classic ones. For example I took the Bibimbap Winter Style with duck, cranberries and vegetables (8,50). The girls went for a classic version with Pulled Chicked (7,50€). Moreover, you can choose whether to get it in a normal bowl or in the hot stone (+1,50€). Koreans always serve it in hot stones as the rice gets nicely crispy and the meal stays warm. I was a little disappointed with my choice because the duck got quite dry in the hot stone. Therefore, I recommend taking a normal bowl. The atmosphere at Mercosy was super relaxed and laid back. They also offer a lunch menu with Bibimbap + Korean Miso Soup + a homemade Ice tea or Hot Tea. All in all if you’re looking for a great place to have Korean food in Berlin, you can come here.
I wish you a wonderful day!
