Josl does not only sound Austrian; the small bistro at Pestalozzistraße in Berlin-Charlottenburg also offers specialties from the South Alps, such as the original Kärntner Kasnudeln and Co. This cozy restaurant offers a colorful mix of vintage furniture, alpine flair and Friedrichshain chic. Many different decorative elements and numerous photographs on the walls ensure a pleasant living room atmosphere.
The menu at Josl is easy to understand and overseeable, but still offers enough possibilities to taste the Southern Alps cuisine. A daily changing lunch menu offers variety. Only fresh ingredients are used in the kitchen. The highlights of the menu are the noodle varieties – the Carinthian cheese noodles (Kärntner Kasnudeln) on sauerkraut and fresh salad. But also other traditional dishes such as Hirter Braugulasch or Backhendlsalat. For this fine wines from Austria, beer from the barrel from a private brewery or Almdudler are served. For dessert caramelised Kaiserschmarrn or a mini-cinnamon gugelhupf with apricot and cream are served. Also, delicious hazelnut schnapps is great to drink at the end.
The Josl is run by Berlin local Patrick and Carinthian Florian, who have already become acquaintances as little boys at the hotel of Florian’s parents in Austria. In Berlin they continue the alpine traditions.
