Our number one place for brunch in Frankfurt.
In the heart of much-loved Berger Strasse, Ginkgo’s is always busy and full, offering breakfast favorites like eggs, sandwiches and pancakes, and one of the street’s best outside seating areas. From the freshly squeezed orange juice to the bread and coffee, everything is freshly prepared and tasty.
Frankfurt’s oldest Mexican restaurant El Pacifico has been serving up some of the city’s best Mexican food and cocktails for over 27 years.
Its location is great (very close to the lively area of Merianplatz) and the food is very good, but the best thing about it is its atmosphere. Every detail at El Pacifico has been extremely well taken care of: from the music and the decoration, to the salt shakers and tortilla warmers. It literally feels like you’re enjoying their food and drinks in the heart of Mexico.
The size of line that forms outside of this place, every day at lunchtime, says it all.
A bit of an institution in Frankfurt’s city center, this small soup and sausage shop belongs to the family run butchers “Ebert Feinkost” across the street. They serve many types of home made soups (from potato, to chilli con carne, vegetable or lentil) and all kinds of sausages with bread and mustard, as well as a scrumptious schnitzel sandwich.
Most Japanese expats will tell you this is their favorite Japanese restaurant in Frankfurt. We agree.
Everything in this small restaurant in Frankfurt’s Sachsenhausen neighbourhood is superb. You can see the traditional Japanese sushi chef at work, creating succulent sashimi (salmon that literally melts in your mouth), nigiris and rolls. They also prepare delicious traditional Japanese meat and fish dishes, together with various tempuras, soba and udon noodles.
Perfectly located in the middle of Frankfurt’s city center, Gregorelli’s is one of Frankfurt’s most popular and fashionable Italian restaurants: always busy, it offers very good Italian food (at not-so-high prices) in a stylish yet comfortable atmosphere.
Everything from the pastas to the fishes and meats is cooked traditionally with very well sourced ingredients (the parma ham, house-made pesto, the sun-roasted tomato bread they serve at every table…
‘Zenzakan Pan Asian Superclub’ is the name they gave this cooler than cool restaurant. ‘Super’ indeed it is.
The atmosphere at this uber stylish spot is sexy and exotic, with Buddhas decorating the dimly lit dining room and lounge music playing throughout the night. They serve stunning Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai inspired food, all prepared to perfection (creative sushi, gorgeous out of this world meats, superb wines…)
One of the city’s most authentic Frankfurter Apfelwein restaurants, Apfelwein Solzer is a great place to go if you’re looking for a fun meal and a truly German atmosphere.
In Bornheim’s Berger Strasse, Solzer’s has friendly staff, very reasonable prices (for €10,90 you get for example any of their 5 different types of yummy wiener schnitzel with bratkartoffeln and a side salad) and a great selection of beer and wines by the glass.
Frankfurt’s best steakhouse.
The tables are on the tight side, the service is good (although nothing out of this world) and the prices are high. But the steaks you can find in Surf ‘n Turf are some of the best in Germany.
These people have their meat flown in from some of the best beef ranches in the US, and it shows. The best piece of meat we’ve ever had was eaten here – The ‘Butterknife’ USDA Triple Star Filet Mignon.
Umi Sushi is one of Frankfurt’s best reasonably priced home-delivery sushi restaurants.
After tasting many sushi home delivered meals, Umi is the first to make it to our ‘Best of’ list. Delivering to most of Frankfurt city, it’s sushi menu is extensive and everything in it is outstanding: fresh and well prepared. Paired with very reasonable prices, it’s a great choice for anyone craving home-delivered sushi!
Frankfurt’s best indoor food market.
In the middle of the city, it’s THE place to go if you’re looking for some of the best German produce as well as International. It has an enormous variety of stalls offering many different types of sausages, cheeses, breads, meats, fish, vegetables, exotic fruits and spices.
