Kottbusser Tor is a gritty place, especially in January, when ice cold winds and low grey skies make it look even uglier than usual. However, in between sketchy corners and broken windows lie some extraordinary delicious and friendly places like Doyum, an Anatolian restaurant with an open charcoal grill, and an especially delicious version of a classic Turkish dessert: Künefe.

If you’re asking: what even are Manti? You’ll be proving my point that Turkish food is still not appreciated widely enough in Berlin. We (must) have a plethora of places serving the most delicious stuff, yet, I don’t find them celebrated enough (except that mishmash of a sandwich called Döner). Here to convince you are Manti, a turkish Ravioli or dumpling. Eat them at this Anatolian place in Neukölln, filled with meat or potato, served with yoghurt sauce and a paprika butter, and you will understand.
Whenever we have friends visiting, I can’t stop talking about the Berlin food scene and all the things they have to try while they’re here (trying to fit everything into only a few days time) – like the best hummus around the corner, followed by a stroll around Street Food Thursday and not to forget a Sunday picknick at Thai Park!
November is an exciting month for me, not only did we have the tremendous success of Warm Up this past weekend, but also did the Stil in Berlin office move from Mitte to Kreuzberg. Which means there are countless new lunch options to explore. First is a recommendation I had on my list for much too long – Adana Grillhaus. One important reason why it took so long is that Adana is just really not for vegetarians, but meat-lovers will find a home here.
My relationship with this bakery began in a time long past, back when I used to live in the area around Schlesisches Tor and would be on my way home from going out, some time between 4 and 7am on a Sunday morning. And Salut would always be open and always have my favorite Turkish pastry – Tahinischnitten. A flaky pastry filled with sesame paste, Tahini, that is to be eaten as fresh as possible.
