For some reason, there’s just something I don’t quite like about this place. On the surface it looks like a nice, big, modern organic market with a life size cow outside. Which, it is. But there’s a certain off putting vibe inside, something about the layout that doesn’t sit with me quite right.
But, personal feelings aside, its quite a good place to go and buy some glutenfrei goodies. The bad side is that rather than put all the gluten-less products in one area, they’ve kept them in their original isles. The gluten free pasta is sat next to the regular poison pasta. The buckwheat noodles are with the soy sauce and miso soup. The result being that it takes a lot of looking to make sure that you’ve seen all the gluten free bits and bobs that they offer. (maybe they think that having a ‘gluten-free section’ is akin to having a segregated supermarket, or maybe they’re just a bit crap)
Enough with the negativity though, they do have a rather nice selection with a few rare items.
Yes, that’s buckwheat pasta in TWO varieties!! Now, to those of you not living here in Berlin this may seem regular, why al the fuss, but here, its a distinct rarity. There is also plenty of corn and rice pasta too!
They also have a pretty good, but fairly regular offering of flours.
In conclusion, dip in, learn where the gluten free goodies are, get them, and run out before you bank balance has a go at you.
*Update November 2011*
They still have the selection of goods above, but they have now a slightly more organised gluten free section :
They are also now offering freshly baked gluten free bread, just to the right when you walk in.
