Kanaan – Amazing hummus

I happened upon Kanaan when a friend of mine who was in town visiting and I were walking through Prenzlauer Berg on an unseasonably warm sunny day last spring. What at first looked like another unassuming Biergarten à la Berlin summer replete with a sand-filled beach aesthetic wound up being, much to our delight, a new(ish)  vegan/vegetarian Israeli-Palestinian restaurant with a menu that would probably make Ottolenghi cry. 

I won’t mince my words: order the hummus! 

For my taste, the flavors are perfectly well-balanced – not too lemony, not too garlicky, perfect amount of tahini.

I realize this is a highly contentious claim that has been at heart of a centuries-old food conflict, but I calls ’em as I sees ’em. 

While I wouldn’t go expecting service with a smile, the food makes up for any shortcomings. We had the Kanaan fries (killer!) with incredibly fresh za’atar that could have only been homemade, and the classic hummus with pide. I’ll definitely be back to try the rest of the menu throughout the summer! Apparently, on the weekend they serve an amazing breakfast as well…
