Wedding is Berlin’s second major Turkish area after Kreuzberg. Touted for years as the next happening spot, signs of gentrification are beginning to be visible. Volta opened to much fanfare, especially as it is part-owned by the chef behind Cookies and Cream, the not-so-secret vegan restaurant above the long-running Mitte nightclub. The space ticks the hipster boxes: exposed concrete walls, low-hanging industrial lamps and a make-shift long wooden bar. The place buzzes at night with a young crowd supping on cocktails or the flavoursome unfiltered beer from the nearby Eschenbräu brewery. The menu serves up familiar booze foods such as Caesar salad or Currywurst, as well as some fusion dishes like braised pork belly with five spice dip and raita. Everyone raves about the Volta burger, a solid wodge of rare mince, stacked with the usual trimmings, then doused in a spicy BBQ sauce and a sesame-brioche bun. The burger comes crowned with a couple of onion rings, a local Spreewald gherkin and hand-cut fries on the side.
