Berliners are crying out for Indian food that actually reflects the breadth, excitement, flavours and textures of South Asian cookery. Until recently, Indians in Berlin would weep openly in the city’s pitiful excuses for Indian restaurants but as the phenomenal success of this modest pop-up (modelled on an Indian ‘chaat’ street food stand) has proven, Berliners just can’t get enough of Chai Wallah’s eccentric, mouthwatering creations. The chicken tikka ‘naanwich’ has become a bit of a cult favourite, but you can enjoy sweet potato fries with lime aioli, spicy lentil samosas and much more…
Must try: Chicken tikka naanwich.
Find them at: Wiener Strasse 34, Kreuzberg, Tue-Sat noon-10pm.
