Being a vegetarian in Berlin is nowhere near as big a challenge as in other cities. The choices we have here are fantastic. And one of the easiest things to find is falafel. In Kreuzberg, you can take your pick depending on which area you find yourself in due to the large amount of Turkish Imbisses.
But all falafel is not the same, and very often ordering it at the first imbiss you find can lead to complete disappointment. One of the most delicious and freshest I’ve had here is the one at Nil Sudanese Imbiss, where you can get the best ‘Tamiya’ (Sudanese version of Falafel). Their homemade peanut sauce, which they put on top of the Tamiya, makes my mouth water just thinking about it and their lentil soup and peanut soup in wintertime are an absolute delight.
They have many different options for vegans, and also offer fish and chicken options. ‘Nil’ started off small in Friedrichshain and then opened up another even smaller Imbiss in “Wrangel kiez”, both of which gained a lot of popularity. The only problem I found there, was that there was never any place to sit other than a small bench outside. Not anymore. Nil now resides on the corner of Boppstrasse and Kottbusser Damm with plenty of sitting space right next to the small park.
