Pass on the Sami Contemporary But Visit the Nordic Embassy Restaurant!
The Sami people or Laplanders are the indigenous people inhabiting the far northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. The Scandinavian Embassy Building (Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland) is currently showcasing the works of 23 contemporary Sami artists. Unfortunately, the only reason to see this small and uninspiring exhibition is to visit the Embassy restaurant, which offers traditional and tasty Nordic cuisine. This stylish cafeteria-style restaurant is reasonably priced and has a menu that changes weekly. Their offerings usually include a vegetarian or vegan dish as well as some great desserts. It's one of my favorite places for lunch in Berlin.
