BEETS&ROOTS — HEALTHY BOWLS FOR A COLORFUL LUNCH

BEETS&ROOTS — HEALTHY BOWLS FOR A COLORFUL LUNCH

On busy days at the (home)office, it can be easy to forget to plan a tasty, filling lunch. At the Cee Cee office in Mitte, Beets&Roots has long been one of our favorite options for a healthy, hassle-free midday meal that satisfies all tastes. With a selection of healthy bowls, salads and wraps, there’s always something on the menu to match your mood, be it a vegan burrito bowl with smoked bbq tofu and creamy avocado, a spicy falafel wrap or a classic quinoa caesar salad (vegan and gluten-free requirements are well catered for). While the restaurant is currently closed for eating in, you can pre-order for quick pick-up in one of their four locations or get your lunch delivered right to your door within the Mitte area. One more thing: the Beets team is offering a 75 percent discount on orders for hospital workers, caregivers and public officials. We take our hats off.

ZOOM FRESH ASIAN MEAL BOXES — RECOMMENDED BY JEPPE CHRISTENSEN

ZOOM FRESH ASIAN MEAL BOXES — RECOMMENDED BY JEPPE CHRISTENSEN

With help from Zoom Fresh in Prenzlauer Berg, you can cook delicious meals at home. They offer 16 different meal boxes that each come with a delicious recipe, with vegan and vegetarian varieties as well as meat. As soon as you’ve chosen a dish from the Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Thai options, husband and wife owners Edward Bae and Hee-Joo Suh go straight to their kitchen and prepare everything for you, cutting the vegetables and gathering spices so everything is completely fresh and ready for cooking at home in just 15 minutes. These boxes are a sustainable, modern meal solution and I was particularly impressed by the quality of the food and the family-run feel of the shop. And here’s the best bit: each time they sell a meal they provide another meal for a child in need. As a father of two small kids and being busy working at Reform, it’s the perfect match for me: all I have to do mix the vegetables, meat and spices in a pan and the meal is ready in a flash – and my kids love it as much as I do!

L’EUSTACHE: FRENCH FLAIR IN THE SCHILLERKIEZ — NOW DOING LUNCH

L’EUSTACHE: FRENCH FLAIR IN THE SCHILLERKIEZ — NOW DOING LUNCH

Since 2015, the charming restaurant L’Eustache has been bringing a little piece of France to the Schillerkiez. It’s a firm favorite of ours and featured in the Cee Cee No.2 book. And while until recently it was only open for evening romantic rendezvous and friendly catch-ups, this welcoming eatery is now open during the day too. The creation of owner and cook Justine, the new weekly-changing lunch menu has seen the likes of celeriac soup garnished with cress in gremolata and leg of lamb on baby new potatoes with a white cabbage salad. No matter what you are served, you can expect excellent down-to-earth cuisine, with classics given a thoughtful new twist. And this being a French outfit, you can also accompany your lunch with a glass of wine from the nicely curated menu. In addition to the inside space, in warmer weather you can dine in the compact outdoor seating area. This is how lunch should be done! (Text: Johanna Osterrieter / Fotos: Savannah van der Niet)

HOLY EVEREST: NEPALESE STREET FOOD FOR SPICE-FILLED SHARING SESSIONS

HOLY EVEREST: NEPALESE STREET FOOD FOR SPICE-FILLED SHARING SESSIONS

When Rajesh Lama moved to Germany, he was surprised to find that in otherwise culturally versatile Berlin, classic Nepalese dishes were missing. All this changed when Rajesh opened Holy Everest in 2019. A glance at the menu shows a commitment to transparency and sustainability – the restaurant’s organic and regional suppliers are all listed in detail. The food itself offers a glimpse of the flavors of Nepal: The starters, like fried mushrooms with Ayurvedic spices and Momos dumplings with spicy chutney, salad and a fruity mango dressing come in small golden bowls and are ideal for sharing. If you feel like something more hearty and filling, the Everest Camp Three Soup is just the right thing on a chilly day. With lots of fresh vegetables, garlic and spices, it warms and energizes you from the inside out. And if you still have room afterwards the traditional yoghurt dessert with cinnamon, cardamom and caramelized pistachios is the perfect finale.

MARIA: COMFORT FOOD FOR HUNGRY HERBIVORES — RECOMMENDED BY STEFAN KEHL

MARIA: COMFORT FOOD FOR HUNGRY HERBIVORES — RECOMMENDED BY STEFAN KEHL

In late 2019, New Deli Yoga in Wrangelkiez transformed into Maria, and since then the restaurant has been delighting its guests with delicious, fresh cuisine. Owner Maria Koimtzoglou playfully conjures up tasty vegetarian and vegan combinations from all corners of the culinary world, like “The Stack” – a tower of potato rösti harmoniously layered with oriental aubergine and served on a homemade hummus spread. Also on the menu: Swedish Köttbullar with a creamy sauce and cranberries served with mashed potato. The carefully selected wines are an excellent accompaniment to Maria’s dishes, ranging from spicy, intense whites that bring out the roasted aromas of the dishes to milder more mineral bottles that are enjoyable on their own. By the way: There is also a lunch menu, as well as breakfast on weekends. Maria is the perfect place to enjoy comfort food that’s a little bit special.
