So for some reason for the Berlin leg of our Europe Trip, I decided to write about all of the tours first. So you I am now bombarding you with non-stop by delicious german foods. There are worse things that could happen. I first wrote about a 100 year old chicken restaurant Henne. Then about the best burger in Berlin, or at least the best burger you can buy in a Bathroom, Burgermeister. Now it is time to write about some schnitzel! Because can you really go to Germany and leave without eating schnitzel. Okay, while I am the guy who went to Paris and did not see the Eiffel Tower and went to China and didn’t see the Great Wall, when it comes to food, I never miss out. So we headed to Scheers Schnitzel.
Scheers Schnitzel is located right at the end of the East Side Gallery. So it is extremely convenient if you are in the area around lunch or dinner. It is underneath the U-Bahn track about 5 minutes from the Schlesisches Tor U-Bahn station. I know , this is the second restaurant I wrote about that is under the train tracks. But I promise you I didn’t only search for restaurants under the train tracks. These were just some of the best restaurants in Berlin. Founded in 2011, Scheers Schnitzel does not have the pedigree of a restaurant like Henne. However, it is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best affordable schnitzel restaurants in Berlin. They pride themselves the locally sourced ingredients that go into their authentic homemade schnitzel.
Scheers Schnitzel’s menu is self explanatory. Schnitzel. They only serve variations of the traditional german dish. These variations can include fried egg, mushrooms, and chilli cheese. However, they do not forget those who do not like pork. All menu items can be prepared either vegetarian substituting vegitable slices for meat or with chicken instead of pork.
As you can see from the menu, Scheers is extremely cheap. The most expensive thing on the menu is 8.90€ and most menu items fall between 4€-7€. Even for berlin standards the prices are fantastic.
Scheers Schnitzel’s Food
By the time we arrived at Sheers it was extremely late. So I apologize in advance for the lack of the usual pictures. However, here is a picture of their food from their website.
As everything is homemade it generally takes between 15-20 minutes from the time you order util you get your food. I ordered Scheers Special. Pork Loin schnitzel topped with a fried egg, bacon, and braised onions. Stephanie ordered te the Schnitzel with Potato Salad.
They make your food right in front of you and served on a paper plate that can barely hold the weight of the generous portion size. You would not guess it from the gritty exterior, but the food here is without a doubt restaurant quality. Switch the paper plate out for a real plate and you could easily charge 3x-4x for this food. It was amazing. The schnitzel was extremely tender and flavorful. The egg was fried perfectly over easy and the yolk just oozed the second I cut into it. It was a great meal, possibly the best one we had in Berlin. But be warned, be prepared to want to nap after it, this much deliciousness will put you in a food coma.
Hidden under the train tracks by the East Side Gallery. Scheers Schnitzel serves amazing, restaurant quality schnitzel for a fraction of what you would pay anywhere else in Berlin.
