Nil Sudanisicher Imbiss is one of a kind restaurant, with three different locations in Berlin.  It’s the first Sudanese restaurant to open in the city and the fare is primarily vegetarian.  Although I was familiar with falafel, halloumi and tofu before I ate at there, I was not at all familiar with food from Sudan.  Everything there is made fresh when you order and is absolutely is delicious, I find myself there at least once a week.

The restaurant takes it’s name from the Nile, derived from the Greek word Neilos.  In the ancient Egyptian language, the Nile is called iteru, meaning “great river”.  With three locations, you’re never far from the Nile, which makes it very easy to get your Sudanese Imbiss fix.  All locations are open daily from 11:00-24:00

Nil 1 – Grünberger strasse 52 Berlin-Friedrichshain

Nil 2 – Oppelnerstrasse 4 

Kreuzberg near U-Bahn Schlesisches Tor

Nil 3  Kottbusser dam 21, Kreuzberg near Ziegenplatz.

The first thing I tried was the Tofu Madagaskar, which is fried tofu with peppercorn, the fixings include peanut sauce, lettuce and tomato.  I like the Tofu Madagascar so much that it was difficult for me to try other things on the menu.  Finally, I decided to try the Tamiya with Halloumi, and now I’m stuck on that sandwich.  If you prefer things a little spicier, you can always ask for “scharf Soße”.   Menus at the restaurant are offered in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
