Do you remember the tiny bakery doing fresh tandur bread for you to take away? Turns out, they’ve got a restaurant too, it’s located beneath the social housing building arching over Adalbertstraße at Kottbusser Tor, and serves Iraqi-Kurdish food. It’s interior is not worth to mention, but having the fresh bread from the tandur oven with fresh lentil soup (pictured above) or taboule salad (below) is a delightful experience in itself. Their menu is huge (how about the party plate, one roasted lamb with rice and bread for 250,-), featuring the default Middle Eastern dishes in uncountable varieties, with the taboule salad standing out with its balanced taste of parsley, tomatoes and onions and eating the soup while using the bread as a spoon is also very recommendable.
Disclaimer: Imagine you’re having great food, and you get your camera to take a nice picture and realize you forgot the battery at home. A fear I guess every photographer suffers from.. this is the reason for those lousy iPhone (no 5, not even 4S!) pics.
