Mitte is more than just the centre of Berlin, it’s also a thriving, cosmopolitan hub in the city. The neighbourhood has an ever-evolving character and houses a mixed blend of fine dining restaurants, cheap eats and tasty food stalls. Among them are some of the tastiest falafel spots in the city.

Bringing Syrian cuisine to Berlin is Yarok, meaning ‘green’ in Hebrew and symbolising solidarity between people. This welcoming, cosy restaurant, located on the quieter end of Torstraße brings together a rich blend of flavours perfectly combined in a rich selection of both traditional and modern Syrian dishes. For first-timers, the mixed platter is a must-try, as it shows off the fresh produce and fragrant flavours of this joint. The highlight of any Yarok dish is, of course, the falafel, deliciously crisp on the outside and spiced to perfection, making it one of the best spots in Mitte.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
