At the Kreuz+Kümmel bistro in Prenzlauer Berg, native Indian and full-blooded gastronomer Chaitanya Singh serves brilliant bistro cuisine with Indian influence. During our visit on Friday we let ourselves be swept away to a heavenly feast.

Singh has been in the business for 25 years, three of those in Vienna and now seven in Berlin. He already had a bar in India and opened a flourishing catering company with two Berlin partners in Mitte. Now he’s brought everything he loves together in Kreuz+Kümmel.

Married to a German, he plays with both Indian and German identities, gives everything that comes his way in the kitchen an Indian twist, and seems to find an almost childlike joy in creating new taste experiences.

He sends a portion of quesadillas filled with Indian jackfruit and mutton curry our way, and serves devilishly good chicken maultaschen seasoned with caraway. Everything is so perfectly pepped up with spices from his homeland, we simply can’t get enough of it.

Ever more curious, we try okra and lotus root crisps, spoon gnocchi with chicken tikka masala sauce, and are left speechless by his self-made Berlin currywurst. It’s accompanied by gloriously light brioche, handmade along with everything else at Kreuz+Kümmel.

We don’t even stop for the generously filled cake vitrine at the end. “My aunt is the cake queen of India,” Singh tells us. “She exports her creations around the world. I grew up with a love for the kitchen.”

And so, too, are his baked goods made in his own oven and not delivered by a patisserie. Along with lunch and dinner, they offer open-faced sandwiches, muesli, and other breakfast creations in addition to daily soups and salads. – A true paradise!
