A friend recently told me I had to go to Thai Park in Wilmersdorf. “Cheap mojitos and amazing food!” That’s about all the recommendation I need. Plus, I had heard of the Thai ladies cooking up delicious food under their umbrellas and I’d been meaning to check it out.
Today was a gorgeous blue sky day in Berlin. Even though Spring is here, that still feels rare. After a night of wine and long distance girl talk, I needed something delicious and spicy, so I put on my walking shoes and headed to Wilmersdorf.
The park was super crowded – as any place is on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. I was amazed by the all of the different kinds of food. Pad Thai, chicken wings, salads, soups, spring rolls, sweets, mango & papaya everything, dumplings, skewers, bao and even crispy fried bugs. There are bar tents scattered around making fresh fruit drinks and cocktails.
Since I always have Pad Thai, I found one vendor making it to order right in front of you. I loved watching the Pad Thai production line, I can”t even imagine how many pans of Pad Thai that woman makes a day. I grabbed myself a mango lassi and a heaping plate of food and found myself a shady spot to watch the people go by. I helped myself to a chicken skewer right off a grill and then finished it all off with some sesame treats.
Thai Park might be something I make a challenge. I need to go hungrier, or go more often because I want to try EVERYTHING.
