Best Falafel and Schawarma in Friedrichshain Berlin

You could easily miss Oase, a small nondescript restaurant located on Warschauerstraße in the heart of Friedrichshain. On the outside, it doesn't look like much, but don't judge a book by its cover.

Oase in the Heart of Friedrichshain
On the inside, you'll find some of the best falafel and schawarma in town. A falafel is an Arab dish usually served in a pita, which acts as pocket. Falafel is a deep fried patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans or both. It's topped with vegetables, hot sauce, and tahini. On the other hand, a schawarma is a wrap filled with chicken or lamb, and served with tabbouleh, fattoush, tomato, and cucumber. Toppings include tahini, hummus, pickled turnips and amba.

Oase gets a well-deserved five star rating. The prices are reasonable, and the staff is friendly. On the negative side, there's limited seating, and there's usually a long line of people waiting to be served.
