Rice Noodles and so good! 

The Tree in Berlin is a Chinese Noodle restaurant with gluten free and vegan options on the menu

But actually, The Tree is more than a restaurant: to me, it was a wonderful and unique food experience, a trip in a faraway land, a step into a beautiful world that resonates with ancient stories with a contemporary feel.

And so does the cuisine: it is truly and typical Chinese food, from the Sichuan and Dongbei regions where the two owners and co-founders come from, revisited with a modern execution that reflects the food experiences that they had in Berlin.

Ling Ma and Xiaoting Zhang came to Germany to study in the first place: Ling as a landscape architect and Xiaoting as a railway engineer.

After some job experiences, they decided to devote themselves to one of their passions: cooking great tasting Chinese food and creating an unique space where people could enjoy it.

All the details at The Tree are selected with greatest care and some furniture have been designed and made by them.

I loved all of it especially the beautiful bathtub filled with plants, the brick walls and the large windows that let the light gently come inside.

The menu is extensive and I was so happy when I wrote them before going, that they had gluten free options and some rice noodle for me to taste.

The Rice noodle were incredibly good, one of the best meal of my life: perfectly seasoned, spicy as I like it, all the ingredients mixed together were so tasty that I am dreaming of them while writing this post…!

I also enjoyed some nice green tea with red berries and flowers and fried soya with vegetables that I chose as a starter, simply delicious.

In the kitchen they also cook noodles with gluten so there can be traces – personally I was perfectly fine but as I always say, the choice is personal and no one knows our body better than ourselves 😉

The Tree in Berlin is definitely one of the restaurants that I enjoyed the most in my life of gluten free gal!
