As I’ve been bemoaning the usually small selection of glutenfrei goods in most shops here, I thought it about time that I visit a (mostly) gluten free dedicated place, Anderskorn in Kreuzberg.
Pretty much 90% of the shelf and store space is taken up with glutenfrei wares, most of it is of the gluten replacement variety with some other foodstuffs that are equally glutenfrei. Infact, they take this so seriously that the only gluten items are locked away in their own sealed glass container, just to the left of the fridge, like they contain the plague or something (ie. the correct way to treat gluten poisoned things).
The staff are helpfully friendly and as you can see on the right of the picture above they do stock freshly baked muffins and such (although they only had brotchen when I was there). These are made off premises by a bakery in Schöneberg and whilst its good that they’re fresh, they’re not all that much better/different than all the pre-packaged stuff they sell. Maybe the muffins are better, if you’ve sampled them, please comment below.
The only downsides to the place are that the selection is fairly standard, you can buy everything that they have in other places around the city, but crucially, not all in one place. Also, it is a little on the pricey side, but as with it being a small self owned business, the customer service level is far better than you’ll get in viv etc.
