Be honest, how many of you have read this recommendation of Kanaan in Prenzlauer Berg and really wanted to go but it’s just too far north? Don’t cry, my fellow South-Berliners, you can now eat the glorious chickpea-dishes of this most amazing Israeli-Palastine joint venture in Kreuzberg!
There’s a new store on the banks of Kreuzberg’s Landwehrkanal: Candy on Bone (a name dreamed up by owner Ludwig Cramer-Klett of Katz Orange and Contemporary Food Lab fame). It’s a true deli, offering sandwiches, coffee, cake and, what I think is most interesting: a very well sorted Lebensmittel store.
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.
By now, it’s been four weeks since I finally accepted Billy Wagner’s invitation in what certainly is Berlin’s most regarded new opening of 2015: Nobelhart & Schmutzig. And I am still indulging in memories. Opened in February, the fine dining place on the Southern end of Friedrichstraße made it into the news with its radical concept of local cooking – they don’t even use pepper! But this is certainly not their most impressing feature.
Good news! Everyone’s favorite place to spend all day, ORA, just renovated their kitchen to serve even better, even bigger plates filled with delicious regional and seasonal dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Just thought you needed to know.
