Sudanesischer Imbiss, Friedrichshain

Posted in Berlin restaurants on March 15, 2009 by biggbear

This is a lovely little restaurant serving up something I’ve never had before: authentic Sudanese food. At least I think it was authentic. It was a mixture of familiar Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine with a few exotic flourishes.


The owner Yassir was a great host. Bit of a sad story in that he fled Sudan and arrived in Germany a few years back as a refugee clinging to the underside of a train. Then granted asylum, he set up his restaurant in the most unlikely of places. It’s attached to a big Plus supermarket on Corinthstrasse. Map

I don’t think he gets many customers, which is a pity. For just 4 euros you get a massive plate of falafels, humous, fried haloumi, salad, chips and .. er .. cauliflower, topped with a lovely peanut sauce. Everything was cooked fresh and prepared in front of us. He threw in mango lassis on the house.
