Berlin is renowned for its multicultural food scene with the Doner Kebab, originally a Middle Eastern dish, becoming one its most popular street foods. Its large migrant population has only increased owing to a relaxing stance towards asylum seekers and refugees. This has had a marked impact on the city’s culinary landscape with entire streets dedicated to Arab food and massive quarters boasting the best Turkish and Kurdish Doner Kebab. As a result, Berlin’s hummus spots are unmatched and below, WizTheMC will be introducing us to his favourites across the city!

Cafe Mugrabi

This spot is all about the well-roundedness. Hummus is beyond on point, and the menu has everything you want to come along for the ride. Try the Sabich! My boy Guy runs the place. Israeli legend that also runs a super well curated record label called Malka Tuti. Met him at OYE Records. Big shoutout to Markus Lindner aka Delfonic.

Azzam

It’s easy to find good food on Sonnenallee, but finding great food is much harder. This one's a Lebanese take on hummus making, and they are doing the thing. The new white-tiled, highly-illuminated LED lit interior may not be the most inviting but the massive plates of mixed food + hummus will hit every spot possible.

Shawarma Albaik

Another Sonnenallee steal. This one for the shawarma lover. Tell them you want the Arabisch. All will be good in the world.

The Hummus Dealer

Once was a home-delivery hummus service, these guys knew how to keep the fridges looking sexy. What more can you ask for than freshly whipped hummus to your doorstep?

Nachtigall Imbiss

Not a hummus-specialty, but doing some of the best shawarma this side of the Spree. The Lebanese family who runs this spot are incredibly lovely, and if you smile there, they slip in a piece of fried halloumi just where you take your first bite.

King of Falafel

The one and only best falafel wrap spot in town. Honestly. More salads than you can dream of. Killer hummus, as well as what-ever other sauces they put in there. The grumpy-but-happy old lady who seems to have never left this tiny hole in the earth will give you a sweet but tasty Syrian tea while you wait. You will wait but it will be worth it.

Hummusapiens

The craziness of Schlesi can drive anybody mad, but take a step away just here for a rejuvenating hummus bowl. Add a few falafels balls and you’re laughing. Shoutout my boy Anwar, for him the Kafta bowl is “a cathartic experience”.

Yafo

For the finer diners. For the finer diners who are vegetarian. For the finer diners who appreciate the creativeness that comes along with vegetarian cuisine. Good spot to impress your crush while also fulfilling the reason you hopped out in the first place - to get that hummus.

Kanaan Berlin

Spending my money supporting initiatives empowering the Israelis / Palestinians relationship, eating the tasty hummus and enjoying the beautiful vibes that the team is putting out. Quality dining experience on a few different levels. Some even say this is the best hummus spot in the city, get out there and figure it out for yourself.
