A meal at Berlin’s Mama Kalo would be incomplete without ordering the Spätzle and the Flammkuchen, a flatbread typical of the Alsatian border region of southern Germany. It’s one reason this restaurant, south of the trendy Kreuzberg neighborhood, won’t be a secret much longer.
A Tiny Spot for Lovely Franco-German Cuisine
Markus Dimitrius is a trained chef and worked at the restraurant “Norbert” in Prenzlberg prior to becoming his own boss at Mama Kalo. Here he serves homemade round Flammkuchen, quiches, soups and cakes. You'll receive welcoming service by the chef himself so you not only find yummy food here but nice atmosphere as well. This new spot is my favorite addition to this Neukölln neighborhood called "Schillerkiez". What makes this place noteworthy for spring/summer season: You can also get food to go which is great since it's close to Tempelhof park.
South of trendy Kreuzberg—a neighborhood that’s drawn comparisons to Brooklyn’s Williamsburg—this extraordinary restaurant will not stay a secret for much longer. Your visit to Mama Kalo will be incomplete unless you taste their spaetzle and a couple of flammkuchen, a flatbread typical of the Alsatian border region of southern Germany. The pear, gorgonzola, and walnut version, as well as the colorful beet and goat cheese are sure to give your friends serious FOMO when you post to social media.
