Shakshouka in Berlin: Gordon

I put this one in the list of 10 new places you have to try this Autumn, although it was already open for about a year. Because whatever, I hadn’t heard about it before and was too intrigued to double-check when I saw they had Shakshouka on the menu. In case you didn’t know, it’s a dish where eggs are poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions, often spiced with cumin, and it is delicious as breakfast food. Gordon, a café / record shop in – where else – Neukölln serves a very fine version of this homey comfort food. Which is why it is now part of the quick and easy breakfast guide.

Aubergine with Hummus at Sababa, Berlin

Revisited: Sababa

Sababa is one of my favorite lunch spots in Mitte, although eating here usually means getting quite tired after, but in a very good and cosy way since your belly is filled with delicious food. Their hummus is excellent, I’d even say it’s the best you can get in Mitte. While sometimes I am not as convinced when re-visiting a place, Sababa instantly went on my favorites list after I first went and remained there ever since. A great news for those who aren’t coming by Mitte very often is that they’re now also taking part in Street Food Thursday with dainty vegan hummus dishes.

Food in Berlin: Zula Hummus Café

I’ve revealed it already, hummus is one of my favorite comfort foods – I like it fresh and creamy, not too heavy, not too much cumin, and served with fresh bread and delicious pickled vegetables. So of course I had to check this little restaurant when it was recommended over on Slow Travel Berlin, and I found a menu much more varied than just hummus.

Food in Berlin: Mogg & Melzer

Mogg & Melzer is a small Jewish restaurant located next to Pauly Saal at former Jewish girls’ school on Auguststraße with a beautifully balanced interior design and very nice artworks lining the walls. Having visited it before, I hesitated writing about them since their vegetarian options are fine, yet not as noteworthy as is their pastrami. Which is why I took my friend Florian Duijsens for a lunch, when they invited me to check out their kitchen, to guarantee a fair review.
