Lunch in an embassy canteen you ask? Heck yes we say. This is no ordinary canteen. Inside the chic and modern Nordic Embassies building just off Tiergarten you can enjoy a cheap, wholesome and substantial meal amongst the suited and booted of the city. With a daily menu offering 3 choices, including one vegetarian, you could eat here everyday and still not get bored.
The self-service style salad bar will keep you on track for your five veggies a day, but the real money is in the hot food. Head towards the delicious smell and a couple of smiling cooks will serve you a delicious dish with a Nordic twist. But a word of warning, don’t overdo the ‘extras’ if you want to keep your meal below five euros!
€5 food: Most hot meals will hover around the €5 mark, but meat dishes may creep a few cents over
€5 ‘fullness’: You won’t need to eat dinner!
€5 change: None, but it’s worth it
