I am pretty sure that one of the biggest perks of going to Berlin is getting to taste all the amazing food the city has to offer. The melting pot is cooking something delicious every day, and you can have a plate of it for little money usually. Same goes for the Karun restaurant in Charlottenburg, which offers a shawarma revelation complete with the best fresh chicken meat and the freshest vegetables you might find in any Berlin street-food joint.
Make sure to try the delicious sauces as well, my favourite is the mango-sesame-spicy mix, and you can even mix your shawarma with some halloumi cheese to top it all off. The Karun has delicious plates and amazing pastry as well if you are into sweets.
The secret of success was that they, for nearly ten years, were a really small restaurant, so it was always something special to come here and feel like an insider. But even with their new, bigger joint they are still going strong – for a good reason. Which is called shawarma. You won’t find better street-food in a nicer atmosphere than here.
