Zhongmin Greger-Wu: "Noodles are a symobl for a long life."

When Zhongmin Greger-Wu arrived in Berlin in 1996, it was love at first sight. She quickly decided that she would stay and build a life here for herself and her young son.

She worked in the restaurant industry for many years and found her calling there. But she always dreamed of owning her own restaurant. A place where she could serve traditional Chinese cuisine - just like the food she grew up with in her hometown of Nanxun in Southeast China. In 2014, the time was right. She opened up her own restaurant, Miss Wu, in Dahlem.

The restaurant promises traditional home-style cooking. The menu is short, but every dish is a hit, particularly Zhongmin Greger-Wu's famous noodle dish.
