What you'll do

Join us for a walk along Sonnenallee, one of Berlin's liveliest streets in the heart of Neukölln. We will visit family-run Arab restaurants and shops, and take the chance to try traditional home-made delicacies.

We would visit a little Syrian spice shop where we will try some of the best olives in town, home-pickled by the family, before we explore the world of oriental spices.

The next stop is all about Hummus - the history, components, preparation, and cultural role throughout the middle east, we will try several different kinds of Hummus, and its most famous by-product, Falafel.

For dessert, we reach one last sweet spot. We would visit a family-owned confectionary which entails a fascinating success story, where we will try some cheese-based sweets that can't be described by words.

We are Avital and Zahi, Israeli Berlin-based foodies.

Avital: a multimedia artist living in Neukölln - a vibrant, artsy and delicious neighborhood. Through my art I try to help people see the extraordinary in the everyday objects. My passion for art can compete only with my love of food, which I would share in this experience.

Zahi: As a cook and a blogger, I find great pleasure in introducing people to new flavors. As a Middle-Eastern, I don't need to explain my passion for Hummus. As a tour guide, I love telling Berlin’s story. This experience brings these passions together.

Es war wie Urlaub in der eigenen Stadt. Neukölln von seiner arabischen Seite über Essen kennenzulernen ist eine schöne Idee.

体验特别的别致,你可以从中了解阿拉伯美食的制作及品尝多样化的阿拉伯美食。当然你需要为你的肠胃保留足够的空间,没吃完可以打包。这是一个非常值得推荐的体验!

Wir sind sehr persönlich, authentisch und freundlich durch diese Reise der arabischen Gewürze und Spezialitäten geführt worden. Zahi ist dabei auf unsere individuelle Wünsche flexibel eingegangen. Wenn wir nicht etwas unter Zeitdruck gewesen wären, hätten wir uns noch stundenlang mit Zahi unterhalten können. Es war insgesamt einfach ein tolles Erlebnis.

Der Food Walk war einfach wunderbar! Avital war wahnsinnig freundlich und verbindlich und eine wirkliche Expertin. Nach kürzester Zeit haben wir uns gefühlt, als seien wir in Begleitung einer alten Freundin. Toll für uns war auch, das alles Essen vegetarisch war und auch, dass wir die Reste mitnehmen konnten. Es war eine Erfahrung, die wir vor allem ohne sie nie hätten machen können, weil wir nicht gewusst hätten, worauf man achten muss und was die besonderen Geschichten der Sonnenallee und der Restaurant Besitzer sind. Sie wusste unglaublich viel über die Geschichte von Neukölln und seiner diversen Bevölkerung, es war also nicht nur super lecker sondern auch sehr lehrreich. Also tausend Dank an Avital und eine bedingungslose Empfehlung an alle, die die Chance haben!

It was amazing. Really. I am not a talkative person, but with Avital it feels like we know each other for years: some jokes, life stories, many interesting facts about Berlin and about food, of course. Avital is very professional and knows a lot, and she knows the way to make it funny. Moreover, I was the only person in group, so we wrapped up all the items which were tasted during the walk (so I had an incredibly delicious hummus, olives and almonds). Caution: you must be really hungry before this experience. In conclusion, I want to say that this is a must-visit experience in Berlin, I definitely recommend it. I am delighted.
