Lockdown Food Vol.1

TAKE A DEEP BREATH

And order food for delivery and take out

Behold the selection of the best take-away and delivery food in Berlin to survive the Corona/COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 in style. Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, right now it’s imperative for you to understand one thing: Without our continuous support, many of our favorite restaurants will not survive the next months. All of us can make a conscious effort and keep spending similar amounts of money we usually spend in restaurants on their adjusted offerings (of course within the framework of your own, new financial reality). This list is the first edition in a series that summarize the adjusted takeout and delivery options of the Berlin food projects I usually report on, celebrating the possibly only good thing that’s coming out of this crisis: A magnificent casual and take-out food offering by some of Berlin’s best restaurants.

First out on this series is a focus on the central districts Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg and as a first update we’ll also include Wedding on this list. As the beating business heart of Berlin, the district of Mitte offers and abundance of great restaurants and compared to other districts, the food offering in Berlin Mitte is by far the most upscale and modern. It’s definitely the place in Berlin with the least percentage of casual immigrant-food restaurants and therefore also the place that traditionally featured the least take-out and delivery options. The further North you go in Mitte, the grungier and hipper the restaurant offering gets and the Northern border joins seamlessly with Prenzlauer Berg, a district that’s a lot more residential than Mitte and where you’ll therefore find a lot more contemporary neighbourhood-style restaurants. Wedding is really a mixed back of everything, but especially strong when it comes to amazing casual food offerings from immigrant cuisines.

There are an abundance of fantastic new offerings on this list – why not give them all a try during the next weeks? Also check my Instagram feed for even more real-time offers from restaurants and shops all over Berlin.

Keep on checking back here as I will keep updating this list as new offerings emerge.

Stay home and stay healthy.
