The good thing about cosmopolitan cities is that you have the chance to experience bits and pieces from every country in the world, and this is a good example.
A block away from Savigny platz, KLX offers street food from the north of Africa and the Middle East, following their traditions but adding a personal touch.
The place is small, colorful and cosy, and the good thing is that you don’t end up smelling like burned fat and oil. The food is homemade, using self-made spice blends, fresh herbs and organic ingredients.
It’s not an easy task to pick a dish from the menu, and unfortunately you can’t have them all in one take. I’ve tried the fatta hummus from Lebanon, the Kafteji from Tunisia, the date-feta-walnut salad. But my favourite is the Garantita, a chickpea soufflé with homemade harissa paste and mixed vegetables with walnuts, dates, celery, and sheep feta cheese.
As for drinks, I recommend the lamoun bil nana, an Egyptian key lime lemonade with mint, or the rosenwasser-zitronenlimonade, Arab rose water with lemon and honey.
