Huge schnitzel, chilled beer, no-nonsense service and open all night; Ericka’s is a Sternschanze institution, serving up giant portions from 5pm to 2pm the next day, or 9am at weekends. With hours like these, it’s a natural favorite for the post-club crowd, who roll in around sunrise in desperate need of a salutary dose of salt of carbs. Don’t come here for the décor–musty carpet, dark wood, game machines–and don’t expect vast gastronomic choice; the biggest decision here is how to take your schnitzel—with mushrooms, fried egg, pepper sauce or “Hawaii” style with pineapple and cheese. Note that Ericka’s is a place of proud neighborhood tradition and staff don’t always take kindly to drunk and rowdy tourists. Try to be polite and patient, and try to speak at least a little German.
