Berlin65 @ Stanley Street - Serving Up an Authentic Experience from the Understated, Unassuming and 'Underground' City of Berlin


Nestled in the heart of Telok Ayer, Berlin65 stands out as a unique establishment that celebrates Berlin's multicultural food scene. With a fusion of German classics, Asian street food, and Middle-Eastern dishes, dining here promises a convivial experience. Co-founded by Chef Stephan Zoisl, currently leading Chef's Table by Chef Stephan in Singapore, and Lorenz Raich, Group Executive Chef at Brtzeit, Berlin65 offers a diverse and authentic experience of Berline food.

Watermelon & Cherry Tomatoes Salad 4.2/5

To start, the Watermelon & Cherry Tomatoes Salad ($18) presents a refreshing medley of diced watermelon, cherry tomatoes, sliced onions, basil, mint, and parsley. The addition of feta cheese adds a touch of saltiness, while a vibrant drizzle of olive oil and lemon ties it all together, creating a harmonious blend of flavours.

Konigsberger Kopse 4/5

For a hearty and homely dish, the Konigsberger Kopse ($16) delights with tender veal and beef meatballs bathed in a traditional white roux infused with tangy capers.

Simit Bread 4/5

A first-time encounter with Simit Bread ($4.50) reveals a Turkish delight dusted with sesame, perfectly paired with a spicy tomato dip. Its soft and chewy texture, reminiscent of a bagel, makes for a delightful indulgence.

Currywurst 4.2/5

No Berlin experience is complete without the iconic Currywurst ($16), featuring plump pork sausages smothered in a rich, homemade sauce of German-style curry powder, tomato paste, and ketchup — an absolute treat for sausage lovers.

The Banh Mi 3.5/5

The 1972 Berlin Original 3/5

The Doner Kebab, a beloved street food in Berlin, takes centre stage in the Banh Mi ($18) and The 1972 Berlin Original ($18). The well-marinated chicken, cooked on a vertical rotisserie, is sandwiched between pita bread, complemented by an assortment of vegetables. While both versions impress, the Banh Mi stands out with its piquant flavors comprising pate, pickles, sriracha, and coriander.

Adana Kebab - Mixed Beef & Lamb 3.5/5

Another highlight is the Adana Kebab ($26), featuring mixed beef and lamb hand-minced meat shaped onto skewers and grilled to perfection. Served with fragrant basmati rice, shredded onions, and pickles, the lamb variant steals the show with its juicy tenderness.

Berliner 4.2/5

To round off the meal, the Berliner ($8) offers a classic German donut experience with a choice of indulgent fillings such as vanilla bean custard, strawberry jam, or apricot jam. Dusted with a generous sprinkle of powdered sugar, this sweet treat is the perfect ending to a satisfying journey to the streets of Berlin.
