We love pastrami, give us a sandwich made with this beef cold cut, some pickles and we will be happy for the whole day. Mogg is definitely our go to place when we are craving a meaty brunch. Their sandwiches and homemade pastrami are out of this world. The idea behind Mogg was bringing good pastrami to Berlin. Mogg’s owners couldn’t find good places to eat this meat in the city, so they decided to create this place, inspired by the typical New Yor delis, and start making their own pastrami, bringing the meat from the states.
Their pastrami sandwich is so good that it was featured in the New York Times, although our favourite one is the Reuben. Adding melted cheese and chucrut to the sandwich makes it simply perfect. To be honest, almost every dish in their menu it’s a foolproof choice, but, besides the sandwiches, we suggest you not to miss their shakshuka and their brioche toast. Although it may seem a bit pricey for a brunch spot, the quality is great and the dishes are really filling.
Brioche toast with poached eggs and truffled mushrooms: heaven
The place is located in Mitte, in a street full of art galleries and it is located in a gorgeous building that used to be a school for jewish girls. The building is not only beautiful but also really interesting food wise, the famous michelin star restaurant Pauly Saal is also located there, right next door.
Mogg is quite a busy place, especially at brunch time at the weekends. This is the only timeslot when reservations are not possible, so if you can choose, we recommend you to visit it during the week or outside of the peak brunch hours. In other case, be prepared to queue for a bit while you wait for your table.
