Where To Find Caribbean & African Food in Berlin

Fooooood glorrrrrious food! Food is one of the best home comforts we can think of. So, whether you’re a sister new to Berlin (check these first) or you’re a longer-term resident who’s feeling home sick, there’s nothing a bowl of curry goat can’t solve.
Traveling seems to be a rising interest in the younger generation of female black travelers – and we couldn’t be happier. We’re continually inspired and motivated to see more of the world after reading posts like this one.
But finding African and Caribbean foods abroad can be difficult. If you’re in Berlin though, don’t fear, we’ve got you covered. 😉
Here are some top places to get black made food where you are.

There’s a calling for more so if entrepreneurial skills are in your repertoire then maybe you should consider it? Jerk chicken and fried plantain, please!
