Fodor's Review

This 100-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 (which means "the hen") has managed to stick around thanks in part to its most famous dish, which is still just about all they serve: crispy, buttermilk fried chicken. The rest of the menu is short: coleslaw, potato

salad, a few boulette (meat patty) optionse, and several beers on tap. For "dessert," look to their impressive selection of locally sourced brandies and fruit schnapps. The small front yard beer garden, reopened after 1989, is once again a lovely and lively place to sit in summer. Die Henne is full nearly every night it's open so make reservations a few of days in advance to secure a table.
