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.
