Addictive vegan chinese restaurant in MitteRestaurateur Wen Wang’s vegan mother (apparently) was the main motivation for opening of this restaurant in Mitte in 2021, in a quiet corner next to Volkspark am Weinbergsweg. The ”mixed chinese” cuisine has influences from Sichuan, Taiwanese and Hu Cai kitchens and it does it all very well. The food served is well above the run-of-the-mill ”ethnic” vegetarian restaurants that are plentiful in Berlin . The spartan interior design may mislead people looking in from the outside, but it is the food that brings people here - and it is solid gold. The restaurant has become so popular that an advance booking is a must for the evenings. The restaurant also serves lunch, which should make finding a seat easier. The food is best served with beer - or with the excellent homemade juices - so there’s no reason to discuss wine specialities. The prices are a bit above what you would expect to pay, but very affordable nevertheless. The Butterfly Lovers won’be featured on any ”best of…” -lists anytime soon, but it serves some of the best chinese vegetarian cuisine in Europe and you’re not going to be sorry for booking a visit.
