Food in Berlin: Smart Deli

Update February 2016 Smart Deli is moving to a new location, business in Chausseestraße is closed, stay tuned for updates!

The Smart Deli opened its doors in February 2002 in Friedrichshain and moved to Mitte last year to a much bigger store. Obviously most Japanese people live either in Charlottenburg or even Wannsee, and Smart Deli wanted to offer them a better location to shop Japanese groceries.
Smart Deli offers a range of every day dishes and of course Sushi is on the menu, but also soup (the udon soup pictured above is just delicious), bento boxes and a variety of main dishes on a weekly changing menu. Japanese food is much about the love for a product, so preparations are usually simple and focus on the high quality of the ingredients. Thus Smart Deli had their water system renovated to get a softer water, use only organic vegetables and have a lot of vegan options. Also they strive for serving meals, that can be eaten up completely to avoid any kind of unnecessary waste. Smart Deli’s team is caring a lot about creating a space with good energy, reviving the people who visit and increasing the cosiness of a rather dull part of Chausseestraße.
