Too crowded. Very rude staff. Uncomfortable atmosphere seeing staff being racist to customers. Overpriced prices. Worst place to go.

both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s
and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s,
