„Dim Sum“ and „Dumplings“ are the specialities of the Long March Canteen. These small amd varied dishes are normally shared with other people on the table, just like when you go for Spanish Tapas. Flavourwise you can expect anything on the menu, from salty over sweet to hot.

Some of these tasty bits from the Shanghai cuisine like Pak Choi salad with baked ginger and soy sauce or marinated chicken skewers with water chestnuts and leek with a lime and honey sauce get prepared in small steaming baskets made of bamboo – a real eye catcher.

On top of that the restaurant scores with its cool, slightly dark look. Blue neon lights, modern Asian art and dark colours like black and red have in fact very little to do with the slightly corny look of the Chinese restaurants you know. Further specials are the canteen-style benches instead of individual chairs.

What about celebrity factor? This restaurant is especially popular with movie stars. Even internationally known stars like actor John Malkovich have been seen here.

Top10 Berlin tip: The owners of the Long March Canteen have opened other restaurants with the same concept in Berlin, among them the Yumcha Heroes in Mitte at Weinbergspark and the Soya Cosplay on Jägerstraße, close to Gendarmenmarkt.
