This week I dig through all the plentiful options in Berlin food outlets and take on Asian-style cooking with a homemade Thai Red Curry.
When you think of food in Germany you think of schnitzel, bockwurst, currywurst, bratwurst, sauerkraut... but combine this with some of Berlin’s various communities – Vietnamese, Turkish, Italian, Arabic (to name a few) – and Berlin becomes a wonderful melting pot of diverse food and tastes.
One of my favourite styles of cooking in Berlin is Thai/ Vietnamese food. Finding fresh spices and herbs in a Berlin supermarket can be quite limited, but the great thing about Berlin is that there are plenty of local Asian stores to choose from. I often stop by Asia Mekong where they have a store located at both Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt. You can pick up a vast array of fresh herbs, dried spices and fruit and vegetables for a good price.
Asian food is healthy, light and refreshing when cooked properly. It is also quick and easy making this a perfect dish for a busy week. Any meal that requires only one pan is a winner for me. Ditch that take out and get cooking your own Thai Red Prawn Curry.
