Maria Bonita Review
This Mexican restaurant is an unassuming space on Prenzlauer Berg's Danziger Strasse. The young owners (hailing from Mexico and Australia) had different ideas of what Mexican food could be, but shared one dream: to bring the authentic cuisine to Berlin. The food is authentic, as fans will attest, and the hot sauce is satisfyingly hot in a country known for sensitive taste buds and blandly spiced dishes. But diners also keep coming back is the sense of camaraderie: the restaurants host frequent parties (Cinco de Mayo is the most raucous, of course) and have done a lot to invite the neighborhood in. If you get a craving for Mexican food in Kreuzberg, visit the sister restaurant Santa Maria at Oranienstrasse 170.
