Kanaan Prenzlauer Berg 

Kanaan is a Vegan-vegetarian restaurant that was established by Oz Ben David, an Israeli entrepreneur and marketing business man and Jalil Dabit, an Palestinian arab descendent of the Samir family that own the famous "Humos Samir“ in Israel and Palestine.

Kannan offers a variety of fresh salad, Hummus dishes with different toppings, Falafel from a unique family recipe, veggie-burger, veggie-döner and homemade baked goods.

The connection between the European and the Middle-Eastern, the traditional and the modern, the urban and the rural makes the Kanaan brand a distinctive marking point like no other in Berlin. A central location where, under one roof, you can experience all the intensity of the Israeli & Palestinian cuisine. A place where you can stock up on the best ingredinets for your home cooking or meet friends for a plate of hummus with some authentic Arabic coffee with kardoamom.

Kanaan employs refugees from the middle east and africa and is a safe-space for all genders. racism, homophobia and transphobia will not be tolerated here!

Shawarma Mama

Kanaan presents: Shawarma Mama!

Where else in Berlin can you find an Israeli drag queen working side by side with a Syrian refugee?

Tel Aviv's legendary Pita takes over Berlin: Shawarma Mama's food truck is travelling around Berlin's food markets offering various Shawarma (Döner) Pita-Sandwiches (vegan options also available) named after famous Tel-Aviv neighbourhoods and served by The Shawarma Mama herself - Chef Arie Oshri, the king of Tel Aviv street food by day and a renowned drag queen by night, who performed at Kitkat and Suicide Circus.

Since this is Kanaan, it makes perfect sense that The Shawarma Mama's assistant is Kanaan's very own Chef Gheiath Khowais, a Syrian refugee, and that the two work in perfect harmony.

The Shawarma Mama's food truck is also available for private events, weddings, parties and festivals. To book Shawarma Mama for your event, please contact us at:
