Best of Berlin

Lockdown Food Vol.3

BERLIN KEEPS ON COOKING

Presenting the third and final edition of the Berlin Food Stories  “Lockdown Food” series with all the best takeaway and delivery food in Berlin Charlottenburg, Wilmersdorf, Schöneberg and “rest of the West”.  With the second lockdown in place and restaurants closed for in-house dining, we’re once again seeing an increasing offer of very interesting takeaway and delivery options emerge from Berlin’s restaurant scene.

It warms my heart to see the level of innovation coming out of Berlin’s restaurant kitchens right now. Many restaurants have chosen to stay closed during the second lockdown or to take longer breaks to see how the situation develops, but more and more options are emerging.

Lots of fantastic food options on this list, from classic West Berlin Chinese take out to some very cool offerings that will brighten any lockdown day: Gourmet sushi from The Catch, Neo-Persian comfort from Rocket & Basil and Michelin-Star Falafel from Prism – or why not delivery of one of the best Neapolitan pizzas in Berlin from Mangiare in Moabit? Lots to choose from on this list, make sure to 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.
