Fodor's Review

This 100-plus-year-old Kreuzberg stalwart has survived a lot. After two world wars, it found itself quite literally with its back against the wall: the Berlin Wall was built right next to the front door, forcing it to close its front-yard beer garden. But Die Henne (it means "the hen") has managed to stick around thanks in part to its most famous dish, which is still just about all it serves: a crispy, half fried chicken. The rest of the menu is short: coleslaw, potato salad, a few boulette (meat patty) options, and several beers on tap. For "dessert," look to the impressive selection of locally sourced brandies and fruit schnapps. The small front-yard beer garden, reopened after the wall came down in 1989, is once again a lovely and lively place to sit in summer. Make reservations a few of days in advance.
