We have got chills and they are definitely multiplying. And just so we do not lose control: we pop into the nicest and coziest restaurants of Berlin to warm up our cold and chilly hands after a long and refreshing autumn walk.

Since I generally go out to eat sushi most of the time in Berlin, I have not been able to explore the various options of sushi ordering too much. (I mean: why order in when for the same price, you can enjoy it outdoors and have a funky experience to boot?) Well, sometimes one does need that lazy Sunday night on the couch, for which ordering sushi is absolutely perfect. One of my recent discoveries is an actually real good place for sushi…
Since some of Berlin’s great sushi restaurants have closed their doors and others have blossomed – or changed for the worst, it is time for a second and current up-to-date list of the best sushi restaurants in Berlin. Sushi is and will always remain one of our biggest foodie passions. Many, many places in Berlin offer sushi as a delicious culinary experience, which makes it difficult for hungry people in Berlin to find the best and most special places. Sometimes we run into a little eatery that you would never initially enter, but which surprises you with great sushi. Some restaurants are beautiful and posh, others are more about the food than the decoration.
A lot of people who come to Berlin ask me what they should eat. Where “the real German” goes to eat and what would be considered typically Berlin-esque that one has to eat when you come to this city. Well, if you do not want to end up in a gory and greasy currywurst bude (shack), you should initally refrain from jumping into any restaurant or eatery that claims to be “German”. Because, German food is not that good. Or is it?
We have already written about the Weinerei. We have also been here many, many times. The Weinerei is a well-known grubby-meets-chique restaurant in the center of Berlin. The most alluring of its features used to be that after eating a four course meal, each guest could choose how much money they were willing to pay. Yet, as of recently, this has changed.
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.
I had been dying to try out the African restaurant Massai on the Lychener Straße. This spot is only around the corner from the U-Bahn station Eberswalder Straße and next door to the Brazilian place Bodeguita de Medio. And since I had so many great food experiences in other African-oriented restaurants, the promise of Massai African cuisine sounded – yes, promising.
More than a year ago, when I thought I was in love and had something people refer to as a ‘boyfriend’, me and Holly went on a so-called double date to a pretty, lively restaurant. In one of the side streets directly off the Schönhauser Allee, the Stargarder Straße, we discovered Fellas. But sadly enough, Fellas closed, quite suddenly. Until one day, a few months ago, something magical happened: Fellas re-opened. With a different owner, a completely different menu and different staff. But it still was Fellas and it had to be tried and tested once more.
I love cheese fondue and I have been wanting to eat cheese fondue ever since I moved to Berlin. Not that Berlin is the capital of cheese fondue, but there are definitely a couple of cheese-worthy places for eating warm and liquid cheeses in Germany’s Hauptstadt. It is one of those dinners that need a special occassion, however. And that is why I had not yet ventured into a restaurant location where eating cheese fondue was the main activity. Until my birthday, that is.
Valentine’s Day is almost there, once more. For the second time, this year Good Food in Berlin also comes with a personal collection of the most suitable restaurant for a special, romantic and potentially succesful evening for anyone alone or not so alone during Valentine’s in Berlin.
