Food in Berlin: Çarik Kuruyemiş

Çarik Kuruyemiş

Another week, another Kumpir. After my discovery of this Turkish baked potato last week, I was happy to try a new vendor this week and my ways led me into this small roasting specialist on Kottbusser Damm (another branch in Wedding, see below). Famous for its roasted nuts and pits, they also offer Kumpir from a huge iron oven, topped with a variety of salads, olives and nuts. This time I went not for the traditional version, where everything available is topped on the baked potato, whose baked inner is mashed and mixed with butter and cheese, but chose three toppings, namely two mayonnaise salads with safran and “hot sauce”, that was at least for my palate really hot.
I liked that they didn’t use aluminum foil and salads were fresh and tasty. Definitely a Kumpir that is recommendable!

Any other Kumpir recommendations?

    As always, beautiful write-up! Contemplating a late run to the market, even if just to see if absolutely everything is sold out. If not this week – soon. Thanks for the tips of where to eat.

    Sounds wonderful! In terms of breakfast Germans do have some need of Horizonterweiterung. Looking forward to go some time.
