Long March Canteen: Chinese Food, Dim Sum and Dumplings

German Restaurant November in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg

Prenzlauer Berg is one of the most cosy and relaxed Bezirke in Berlin where you will be able to find a nice restaurant on basically each and every corner of most streets. Of course there are big favourites, such as the Helmholzplatz, the Kollwitzplatz and other silly little streets off the Schönhauser Allee. A few weeks ago we were browsing the streets around Eberswalder Straße, inbetween the Kollwitzplatz. Here you find – among many others – the classical restaurant called November.

Lavanderia Vecchia: Italian Cuisine in Berlin

More than a specific cuisine, I like cool concepts of dining. We tried Pret a Diner, we have been up for some supper club dining and we even ventured outside of Berlin to look for nice places for food. A really fun and fabulous restaurant in Neukölln, hidden away in a backyard, is the Italian old laundry factory Lavanderia Vecchia.

Hasir Turkish Restaurant: Berlin Kreuzberg

I love and adore Turkish food. Yes – not just döner. I mean real Turkish food. Delicious bread products, cous cous, rices, meats, yoghurts, herbs, sauces and much much more. The most predominant “Turkish” food in Berlin is the döner. But I am not going to write a review on döner foods. Because I like restaurants. And I ended up in this very nice Turkish place on Kottbusser Tor in Kreuzberg.

Volckswirtschaft Friedrichshain: Home-Made Bio German Food

On the Simon-Dach Straße you may not find too many surprising and special restaurants. Chain sushi restaurants, large Indian eateries and a lot of mainstream restaurant locations have started to inhabit one of Berlin’s most popular streets for sauntering. Thankfully, some corners of Friedrichshain have remained the same. On the Krossener Straße, a side street off Simon-Dach Straße, and opposite of hobnob highlight Cupcake, you can find Volckswirtschaft.



Hamy Neukölln: The Monsieur Vuong of Berlin Neukölln

Hamy Neukölln: The Monsieur Vuong of Berlin Neukölln

A few steps away from the U-Bahn station Hermannplatz, right in the middle of one of Neukölln’s most lively and popular corners, you come across a great many of cheap-looking standard Vietnamese eateries. One of these is the not very promising yellow banner of Hamy. “Specialities from the Vietnamese cuisine,” it says next to its name. Next door another Asian eatery is trying to lure its customers inside with a quite similar promise. Normally, Hamy would not be a place I would enter for enjoying an evening meal.

Tapas in Neukölln: Maria Mulata

In the midst of snowy evenings and chilly winterdays, and after all those christmas markets in Berlin, it is time to move on to the warmer corners of the world. After weeks of mind-numbing chills, maybe you too feel like it is time for some warm and cuddly foods in a comfortable and sweet environment.

Afghan Restaurant Chraazan in Schöneberg

Maybe we do not always end up eating in the most exciting restaurants that Berlin has to offer us. We adore sushi and preemptively tend to choose familiar yet fresh eateries that we either have partially experienced or heard from before. But thankfully sometimes we get really cool and out of the ordinary tips and recommendations and we are ushered into new and exciting places. Chraazan was one of them…

Fleischerei on the Schönhauser Allee: Eating Meat

Even though it is not really Christmas yet, some people have already had their company Christmas parties – called Weihnachtsfeier in Germany. I had mine at at the Fleischerei (the Butcher’s), where – not surprisingly -  eating meat is the main focus of the restaurant. Located on the Schönhauser Allee, next door to the fast

Giorgio: Great Italian Restaurant in Schöneberg

Years ago, when I visited Berlin for the very first time in my life, I went straight to the Motzstraße, to the pulsating gay heart of Berlin. My eyes sparkled and my heart did a little headstand in my chest. I was here, finally. And officially, this restaurant was my very first discovery. So I went back last weekend, to re-explore the real Italian cuisine in Berlin Schöneberg.
