Best of Berlin

Lockdown Food Vol.2

TAKE ANOTHER DEEP BREATH

And order even more food for delivery and take out.

Behold the 2nd edition in my “Lockdown Food Series” featuring my selection of the best takeout and delivery food in Kreuzberg, Neukölln and Friedrichshain during the current Corona-restrictions for Berlin’s restaurants. What you’ll see is that lot of your favourite restaurants have quickly adjusted their offering to the new situation and many places that would never do takeout or delivery under “normal” circumstances, are now coming up with fantastic casual food offerings. This list focuses on these places, so seize the opportunity and contribute to the survival of those restaurants. Every euro and every order counts – without our continuous support during the next weeks, many of our favourite restaurants will not survive this crisis.

Kreuzberg and Neukölln offer a very similar food offering with a mind-gobbling variety of food from all over the world. These two districts are most known for their unique offering of Turkish and levantine food, but it’s also been here where a lot of the progressive and hip new restaurants have set up shop in the last years. Friedrichshain is a lot grungier, but has in the last two years seen a handful great food projects open and these are also operational during the crisis.    

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
