Ethiopian in Berlin: Langano

While most food-trend-forecasters (that’s a real job, yes) might bet their money on Mexican food to rule Berlin this coming months, I am personally rooting for the rediscovery of West, Central and East African food. Admittedly a region to big to assemble under one label, it seems so unjustifiably underrepresented in the Berlin food scene, that creating a generous label might proof handy for my own discovery. However, the least underrepresented of those national cuisines is definitely Ethiopia’s. And one very delicious example is located just off the canal in Kreuzberg: Langano.

Food in Berlin: Blue Nile

Tempelhofer Ufer is not anyone’s idea of Berlin at its most charming, especially in winter. Yet here I was, huddled up in my winter coat scrunching up my face against the sharp, freezing wind and overtaking a typically optimistic gaggle of Mediterranean high-schoolers taking some time to chat on the phone dressed in abysmally thin (but matching, bless) Jack Daniels wifebeaters. It was obvious: they were going to have the best school trip EVER and I was in need of some comfort food.
