* FakeNationality:
** Moritz Bleibtreu as a Greek, namely Illias.
** Birol Ünel's character Shayn is not a Turk.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with Zinos, though, played by Adam Bousdoukos, both Greeks.



* WriteWhatYouKnow: This not only explains the choice of and the focus on Hamburg, but also the story itself which is based on what the main actor, Adam Bousdoukos, experienced when he had a restaurant himself.

''Soul Kitchen'' was the first movie Fatih Akın shot completely in Germany which made him more expensive than any of his previous movies. It takes place entirely in the city of UsefulNotes/{{Hamburg}}, largely in gentrification-threatened areas in Wilhelmsburg. Akın referred to it as a "declaration of love to Hamburg and its inhabitants" and actually showcases the city with its many facets.
