The best Japanese place you’ve never heard of. Green tea is the favoured ingredient at this diminutive cafe and restaurant tucked into an unassuming building on busy Mehringdamm. It comes in three forms: tea, smoothie and muffin – all made with traditional matcha powder. If tea’s not your thing, you’re still going to love their udon noodle soup and salmon teriyaki, which arrives perfectly flaky on a soft pillow of rice. For dessert, try a macaroon (or two, or five).
