One of my favourite dishes to prepare is also one of the simplest. I love vegetarian fresh food that invigorates instead of dumping big lumps of fatty food in my tummy. Whenever I feel like I need some food detox, I tend to stick to making simple salads with lots of vegetables and absolutely no meat.

To me, eating vegetarian meals is very normal. Most of the time, I will eat something without meat when I go out to dinner. Not to say I am a vegetarian, I do sometimes eat meat. But all of the locations and reviews here are thereby saturated with a vegetarian consciousness. A restaurant that does not offer vegetarian food, will get a negative remark about that.
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.
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.
On the beautiful Carl-Herz-Ufer with a stunning view of the canal languidly floating by and in the middle of Kreuzkölln – probably a bit more Kölln than Kreuz – you ought to pop into the brand new a.horn bar and brunch, lunch and dinner location. It is a restaurant, a brunch hot spot and a great bar all rolled into one.
Looking out over the Volksbühne, a classical architectural landmark in Berlin’s pulsating Bezirk Mitte, one stumbles across the small restaurant called Voss. Due to its location next door to the cult cinema Babylon, Voss is either relatively empty and relaxed – or brimming with people who have just wandered out of the cinema. Voss is a relatively large restaurant, but due to its casual atmosphere, it feels small and cosy. Its staff is always friendly and willing to lend a hand – and with its great and diverse menu with a large stamp of budgetproof-ness on it, Voss is a safe bet for any occassion.
I work around the corner from the popular Prenzlauer Bergian hot spot the Kastanienallee. This street is filled with a large variety of restaurants, take-away places, shops and other trendy Berlin stuff. At the end of the Kastanienallee you either end up at the Zionskirchplatz (where bars and restaurants continue, such as the FraRosa Weinerei)
