Cafe Mugrabi - Cocina judía en Berlín - Comer en Berlín

It’s no secret that jewish food is super trendy right now, and quite delicious too. As you may already noticed, we are huge fans of jewish dishes, since we find them not only rich and flavourful but they also remind us a lot of our traditional home flavours. There’s a strong connection between jewish culture and the south of Spain, and it becomes even more obvious when it comes to our approach to food. Nosh Berlin is coming and we couldn’t miss the chance to share some of our favourite places for jewish food.

Yafo

This charming israeli bar/restaurant is located 1 minute away from the busy Torstraße. It’s interior bring us memories of traditional country houses in our city, with colorfur tablecloths and fresh vegetables lying around. Besides their normal menu, they also have special lunch offers, homemade lemonade and one dish to choose between 4 options, 6,5 €.

Their hummus is famous, but their roasted cauliflower with tahini sauce stole our hearts. Don’t miss it!

Fine Bagels

Warschauer str. is probably not the prettiest street in town, but still you can find some great places around there. For example this lovely bookshop with homemade bagels (the best in Berlin), yummy sweets, nice coffee and a book selection to die for (everytime I go I spend half my salary there). It’s the perfect place to have a great lunch while enjoying a good book or working with your computer. Our favourite is the Lox bagel (smoked salmon) but everything we’ve tried it’s delicious. They have a lot of different kind of bagels, so whatever filling you prefer, ask the lovely staff for advice to choose a bagel that goes with it. Some Sundays they make french toast with Challah bread, if you have the chance, go and treat yourself with one of the most delicious brunchs ever invented.

Fine Bagels –Warschauer strasse 74 Berlin, Germany – Mon to Sat 8 AM to 8 PM, Sundays 9 AM to 8 PM – 

Zula

Zula is one of our favourite israeli places and without any doubt one of our go to places in prenzlauer Berg. We seriously doubt we would have made it through Berlin’s grey winter without heir hummus with Shakshouka topping. Go get you some asap!

Café Mugrabi

We already told you how much we love this cosy place in Kreuzberg. Don’t miss it, sunny days are coming and their outside tables are the perfect spot to spend them. All their food is great, but their arabic coffee and the mugrabi are musts.

Cafe Mugrabi –– Mon to Fri 10 AM to 5 PM, Sat & Sun 10 AM to 6 PM – 

Mogg

Mogg - Cocina judía en Berlín - Comer en BerlínWe have also told you about this one before, home of the best pastrami sandwich in town. If a New York times acclaimed sandwich and a truffled mushrooms brioche toast ( my personal favourite) are not enough reasons to take you there, we don’t know what could. Yum!

Mogg – –Mon to Fri 11 AM to 10 PM, Sat & Sun 10 AM to 10 PM – 

It’s been a difficult selection, so we’ll come back soon with a second edition. In the meantime, you can not miss Kanaan (another Prenzlauer Berg Gem), Gordon’s ( cafe and record store in the most hipster par of Neukölln) and Djimalaya (grill and hummus in Mitte).

We’ll keep on researching and dipping pitas in hummus all over Berlin.
