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.
Other things to note
The main language of this tour is English. We can also offer it in German and Russian (yet not perfect).

We take extra precaution with hygene and serving food, using dispensible utencils, carry and use hand sanitizer and serve food with gloves. Yet some food is served in sharing plates.

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.

Zahi was a fantastic host! He gave a great insight into Arabic and Syrian food, but also cooking in general and included his own personal opinion and experiences, which was very fascinating to hear about. He gave great reasoning for each place, showing he truly did put a great deal of effort into finding the best ones. All the food was of course delicious and came with insightful knowledge that would most certainly prove useful to have in your life.

Very enjoyable tour with several food stops. Some of the food I had tried before in other places but the one provided by Avital was way better, changed my perspective over it. I have also met Zahi in another tour and I can genuinely say that is very pleasant to spend time with both them.

We booked the tour for our office team event. It was COVID safe and we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere a lot even though all of us were living in Berlin (some of us where also born here). Zahi and Avital made sure we were comfortable and felt safe. Our whole team enjoyed the experience! And the food was amazing and a lot!!
