I wandered the streets a few Sundays ago in the the most Wochenende Bezirk of all: Friedrichshain. I wanted classy, slightly posh and simply cosy, classic and à la carte for my brunch location. The night before had lasted traditionally long and with a tired and slightly post-intoxicated smile, we came across Kuchenrausch (Rush of Pie). I used to suspect this place is only interesting for their pies and cakes, but Kuchenrausch is actually a great breakfast restaurant too.

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.
On the Alte Schönhauser Allee, just down the street from the hyped Monsieur Vuong, one stumbles onto the bar- restaurant Blaues Band. It is exactly what one would expect from a bar and restaurant in Mitte. It is bright, sleek, design-y (without being too overbearing) and cosy. Upon entering, the first thing you see a large wooden round bar that looks more than welcoming with its dozens of bottles temptingly displaying their potentially intoxicating liquids. But is the food here nice?
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.
Our first facebook fan recommendation that we tested out on a celebratory Friday evening. In the middle of the hustle and bustle of Kreuzberg, only a few steps away from the Oranienstraße, you can find many little boutique restaurants. Green Rice, a Vietnamese mini-restaurant, is one of them. Prepare to amaze your tastebuds!
In the middle of the city center of Berlin, near Friedrichstraße and on a side street of Unter den Linden we find Ishin. A large, clean and authentically Asian sushi restaurant. Here you can catch up on your real fresh fish and vegetables with sushi, Don and other steamy delights.
Wasabi is a small sushi restaurant located on the Oranienburger Tor that has made it to the top 3 of my personal favourites. The price-quality ratio at this restaurant is simply stunning, with a large menu and a great choice for experienced sushi fans. A great place for sushi dinners or taking away from what is one of the best sushi restaurants in town.
In the lively center of Berlin Prenzlauer Berg, on the border with Mitte, one can find a very nice hidden secret. In the Weinerei (winery) Frarosa, you can drink and dine as much as you like, for the amount of money you want to spend. Delightful four-course meals, all home-made, for as little money as you like.
