edd’s thailändisches restaurant? please. mao thai? no way, josé.
nope — for the freshest, most delicious, and authentic thai food, head on over to winterfeldtmarkt on saturdays, and find the little stand owned by the talented and lovely ms. rattaporn moeckel. choose any of their daily specialties. you’ll love it, regardless of what you end up ordering — be it soups, curries, or chicken saté. their wonton soup is made with delicate, pillowy wontons stuffed with ground pork and spices, bobbing around in a flavorful broth.
my personal favorite by far, however, is their fiery dim sum. people with “farang” palates can get a whimpier version, but really – what’s the point? these are incredibly delicious dumplings bursting with thai flavors: spicy, salty, sour, and a touch of sweetness.
a recent special was this incredible steamed fish topped with a custardy coconut curry.
ms. moeckel can be hired for catering, and if i were to throw a party in berlin, she’d be my first choice.
go eat there NOW. do make sure to get there before 1 pm, otherwise most of the tasty treats will have been ravished by other, earlier birds. damn, i hate those early birds.
