W – Der Imbiss

The food served here is truly unique, I would probably describe the cuisine as Indian-Mexican with a Hawaiian twist. As crazy as that may sound, you will realize how true it is once your read the menu. The signature dishes are naan “pizzas” which you have to imagine as a naan with different toppings, for example artichokes, olive tapenade etc. The naans are baked in a truly authentic Tandoori oven and with the fresh and flavorful toppings they taste absolutely amazing, hands down. To this day I haven’t found out if this is a Hawaaian creation or just one by the big, burly owner of Der Imbiss. Whoever came up with the idea though deserves some kind of price.

The naan pizzas are far from the only highlight on the menu, you also have to try the classic combo which is the lentil curry soup with a ghee or dirty naan. This meal will only cost you a couple of euros and you will end up both happy and full, guaranteed. In a city that has a strange lack of decent Indian restaurant this lentil soup is actually one of the best curries you can get. And if that is not enough, you can also get a seriously good burrito and some excellent quesadillas which will only be outcompeted by true Mexican street food joints like the Maria Bonita. To all these dishes you get served a wide range of sauces/dips like Guacamole, Chipotle, Artichoke Mash, Tapenade etc. and this adds a nice extra touch to the dishes. Big part of my love to Der Imbiss is due to the fact that they serve bloody tasty, healthy, easy and considerably cheap food. Especially the “easy” part is important, it’s one of those places you can just drop by on a Tuesday night or a Thursday afternoon for a quick bite and feel absolutely great.
