One of the annual events that we really enjoy in Berlin is the Berlinale (Berlin International Film Festival). Each year my wife arranges to get tickets to one or two movies at the Culinary Cinema. Yes that’s right, the Culinary Cinema. This has been part of the Berlinale since 2006. This year one of the movies we saw was entitled, “Make Hummus not War.” It is a great movie and I recommend that you see it when it comes out in theaters. Anyway as you might have guessed the star of the movie is: Hummus!
After we saw the movie, my wife and I went on a search for the best hummus restaurant in Berlin and we found it. The Zula Hummus Cafe is located in Prenzlauer Berg at Husemannstrasse 10. It is a very intimate restaurant that serves the finest hummus in Berlin. I like the traditional hummus platter served with hard boiled egg and pine nuts. It comes with a basket of pita bread so you have swipe your way to hummus heaven. You don’t need a fork or spoon to enjoy hummus. All you need is some pita bread. Yummy!
They have several variations on their basic hummus platter, each with more ingredients and toppings. Their hummus platters are served with sides of their special garlic lemon juice, hot chillies, pickles, olives, and onions. You can add as little or as much of these as you like. Their hummus is creamy smooth and so delicious. It is made according to their own special recipe.
We’ve already been back a second time and once again enjoyed another wonderful hummus meal. If you’re looking for authentic hummus, then I recommend you go to the Zula Hummus Cafe in Berlin.Zula Hummus Cafe Husemannstraße 10 10435 Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg Telephone: 49 (0)30-417 15 100
