Anyone who knows the BRLO brewery knows that their home-brewed craft beers are some of the best in town. However, BRLO also know a thing or two about food: enter BRLO Chicken & Beer. This restaurant in the delicatessen department of KaDeWe dedicates itself entirely to chicken, always organic and grilled to perfection. If you’re vegetarian, don’t worry – they’ve just expanded their menu to include plant-based options.

Rotisserie Chicken: The star of BRLO Chicken & Beer

The restaurant name, BRLO, is based on the original Slavic name for Berlin – Berlo. It’s fitting too. This place knows its history: the rotisserie chicken is a culinary icon of Berlin. Back in the 1960s, you could find chickens being rotated on the sixth floor of KaDeWe.

So BRLO have brought the chickens rotating at KaDeWe. This time, though, the birds are better than ever. Ethically sourced from a farm in Paderborn, these are drug-free, organic, and delicious.

The quality of chicken ensures the impressively crispy, yet juicy and full-bodied taste. And even though the chicken is only marinated after grilling, the taste and aroma seeps all the way through the chicken (we can’t stop thinking about the lemon-thyme version). It goes without saying, that you shouldn’t forget to grab a beer, too! You won’t regret it.
