Do you want to eat delicious hummus in Berlin? There's nothing easier: There are countless good restaurants and snack bars where you can spoon the creamy chickpea puree right out of the bowl. But precisely because there is so much choice, we have asked ourselves the question: Where can you get the best hummus? Here are our top 11 recommendations.  

Tip 1: Kanaan

The "best hummus in town" - that's what the founders of Kanaan say about themselves. And you can’t argue with it. In addition, the vegan-vegetarian deli contributes to international understanding, as it is managed by an Israeli and a Palestinian. Hummus, falafel, and shakshuka are the big hits on the menu, but the tip is the Israeli-Palestinian breakfast, which is served every weekend with hummus pancakes & co.     

Where: Schliemannstraße 15, Prenzlauer Berg
When: Monday to Thursday 6pm to 10pm, Friday 12pm to 10pm, Saturday and Sunday 12pm to 10pm

Tip 2: Azzam

At Azzam in Sonnenallee, there is fresh hummus and falafel etc. If you don't find that Kanaan is the best hummus restaurant, you should definitely try Azzam, which has been known for its creamy hummus for many years. Hummus is even served for breakfast here - exactly the place for Hummus lovers. The owner, Hussam Azzam, is in fact Palestinian and comes from Lebanon - and hummus means home to him.

When: daily 8:30 till 0 o'clock

The Syrian snack bar Yarok in Mitte has the charm of a snack bar, but you can also sit outside on ale-benches and watch the hustle and bustle on Torstraße. Yarok serves Syrian-Arabic cuisine. The term Yarok comes from Hebrew and means green - it represents solidarity between people. Accordingly, the waiters are also from a variety of countries. Our tip for your first visit: order the mixed plate with hummus, oven-baked vegetables, falafel, halloumi, tabouleh salad, and more.
