Restaurant Review Bleibergs

On a sunny June evening we went to Berlins oldest running kosher restaurant - Bleibergs. A dairy restaurant that serves traditional dairy dishes like breakfast, pizza and pasta, Israeli foods like hummus and falafel and also a large choice of vegetarian and vegan dishes based on tofu.

Maybe the biggest advantage is the possibility to sit outside:
Bleibergs also has several tables on the sidewalk, surrounded by some greenery.

We decided to try a mixture of German and Israeli cuisine: Oriental plate with various salads, salmon sandwich and homemade lemonade. Dessert was coffee and cake. The prices let you feel the kosher surcharge but stay reasonable.

The time waiting for the food is best spent talking with Manuela, the owner. You will learn a lot about the history of the Berlin Jewish community and the ups and downs of kosher life in Berlin.

Bleibergs also offer take away and catering services which are often used by visiting tourists and traveling groups. They can also bring a kosher breakfast to hotels in Berlin or deliver ready-to-eat food packages for all the Shabbat meals.

The restaurant is kosher le mehadrin under the supervision of Rabbi Ehrenberg.
