The Berlin

This is not your average neighbourhood restaurant. It’s the new place in town, but it’s already making its mark. Award-winning Chef, Jonathan Gushue (previously of Langdon Hall), has brought his culinary inventiveness to downtown Kitchener.
Location: 45 King St., Kitchener
Cuisine: European
Why it makes our mouths water: We’ve been drawn in by the top chef! We love the atmosphere (and the modern European food, of course!). It’s a new piece of old Kitchener history. The building was built in the late 1800s and has maintained it’s charm. And let’s not forget ‘The Berlin’ is an ode to the city’s roots.

Bangcok Cuisine

Location: 1500 Weber St. E, Kitchener
Cuisine: Thai
Why it makes our mouths water: The pad thai is absolutely stunning, made with fresh ingredients, and customizable spice levels.
