The popularity of Laksa is a bit of a weird case, wildly beloved in Melbourne, but reportedly harder to find in its country of origin, Malaysia, it is making a slow rise in popularity in Berlin. Especially during those cold days when the Siberian winds are making you shiver, a bowl filled with coconut broth and noodles is what we all crave. The Store Kitchen now has it on its lunch menu – and it’s vegan!
It’s minus way too many degrees out there, and while the snow is looking lovely and crisp, and the sun is doing its best to keep the vitamin d flowing, it’s just incredibly cold. So who wants soup! I do! Every night, to be honest. Bowls, bowls, all kinds of bowls. Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian, Turkish, Korean, whatever broth, noodles, veggies, pastes, I’m in!
Here to save you from freezing, are six of my favorite soups in the city.
Turns out, Laksa is one of the most popular Asian dishes especially in Australia. And I’ve never even heard of that soup before this pop-up event at Industry Standard. Ozzies Julian Boyce, the owner of chicken burger haven Piri’s in Wiener Straße, and Sebastian Andrews wanted to bring their favorite comfort food from home to the cold streets of Berlin – and all I can say is: thank you so much! (And believe me, you will thank them too…)
