Mmaah is a stylish South Korean BBQ shack and a great summer secret – tucked among the trees between Volkspark Hasenheide and Templehofer Feld it’s easy to wander past without realising what delicious treats lie within.
There are three classic ‘Hauptgerichte’ options: Bulgogi, meaning grilled marinated meat, served with perfect rice and a delicate salad, Hotgogi – a spicy chicken version, and Vegetarian/Vegan Mandu – tofu dumplings with a kimchi sauce. The dishes come in 3 sizes, although the small plate (just €4.50) is fairly generous if you’re just dropping in for lunch.
Mmaah is an ideal breakaway from the scorched Templehof earth on a hot day, with the seating area occupying a shady spot under the trees. But if you find yourself in the lower end of Neukölln there is a second spot on Kiehlufer, overlooking the canal.
€5 food: You can get a small portion for just €4.50, but you’ll have to break the €5 mark to upgrade
€5 ‘fullness’: A hearty portion served with rice makes an ideal lunch option
€5 change: Nothing if you’re feeling hungry enough for a medium dish
Tuesday – Sunday: 12:00 – 22:00
