“Killer Margaritas!”

This is a great place for Mexican food junkies to satisfy their cravings in Berlin. They have decently authentic Mexican cuisine and great margaritas. We have tried quite a few menu items, and none have been disappointing..though some have been so-so. The mole sauce (we had it on enchiladas) was a delightful surprise...it was just as good as those we favored while living in Southern Arizona. The fajitas were also a high point. The service is about average, but always friendly. The location is at the end of Bergmannstrasse...a charming street lined with small shops and great restaurants.

Arriived there by chance, we were looking for "Charlie checkpoint".

Food (I had huachinango a la veracruzana) fish and sauce was very real - consicering being at Berlin -, the rice and salad with it were not Mexican taste, but were ok. Service was friendly and prices reasonable.

Restrooms were not very clean and general setting was ok.

We were staying in the neighbourhood and needed somewhere to eat. A wander through the streets led us to Joe Penas. We were hungry and ordered the fmixed ajitas for two at 24 euros which was a good choice. Ther serving was enormous with lamb, chicken, beef and prawns. My only complaint would be that the prawns had been cooked from frozen and some were squishy, the flavour was lacking a little too but it all went down very well indeed.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was reasonably busy for a weeknight. The menu was extensive and the food I saw going to other tables looked good. Generous portions as you'd expect in Germany.

I probably wouldn't go back to Joe Penas for the simple reason that I'd want to try somewhere else. But if you're in a similar situation where you need a meal and everywhere else is closed, give it a try and I'm sure you'll be as pleasantly surprised as we were.
