Smyrna Kuruyemis – Nuts about nuts

If you’re on a night out on Oranienstraße in Kreuzberg, I recommend hitting up Smyrna Kuruyemis, a nut roaster and café, for some salty sustenance. 

The brightly lit shop greets you with a late night crowd of teenagers, blaring Turkish pop music, kitschy posters, and a long glass case chock-a-block full of, you guessed it, nuts. The case’s divided into savory and sweet, the latter of which includes an impressive, colorful selection of dried fruit. 

I like to come here as an alternative to getting a greasy kebab or mediocre Chinese noodles if I’m feeling particularly health-conscious after a few drinks at one of the many establishments in the direct vicinity. 

My personal favorites are the spicy cashews and Turkish-style corn nuts. The spicy house mix with wasabi is also worth trying. Everything’s sold by the 100g so you can mix and match as you please. Try a big mix of whatever looks good! Go nuts… 

TOP TIP: 

If nuts didn’t fill you up, check out the Turkish bakery directly next door. They pump out Turkish sweets, baklava, and böreği (a strudel-like Turkish pastry filled with spinach and salty cheese) pretty much the whole night, especially in summer.
