Well situated in the bustle of Kreuzberg’s central square, the pint-sized Gerüchteküche (literally “rumour kitchen”, i.e. “rumour mill”) is the neighbourhood’s go-to locale for cheap, house-made potage. Whether you’re craving beef goulash, Thai peanut-leek or veggie chilli with tortilla chips and a gobbet of sour cream, there are always a few varieties – at least one veggie – simmering in giant pots on the open kitchen stove.

Soups €3.80-4.50
