There’s something about sitting in a café and watching the people go by. When in Paris, it’s one of life’s simple pleasures: with all the boulangeries lining the streets, it can be hard to pass by without pressing your nose against the windows. Here in Berlin, slowly but surely, Pannierstraße in Neukölln becomes my favorite place to go for a sweet treat! From huge cakes to small delicacies, and now at the French café Croissanterie even a very very good Croissant.
Isn’t it amazing how instagram evolved into a source to discover new food places – if I hadn’t found this place’s stream, I might have never found it. Because when do I find myself in Friedrichshain? Not very often.
It’s like a little heaven for lovers of vegan clean food, with a beautifully styled interior and a menu to make you drool. Just the name I can’t even pronounce – La-auma? Lauma? La-ooma? But then, what’s in a name?
In the rare case of not having heard of Tim Raue until now, let’s just say it’s one of the best fine dining experiences you can get in Berlin (2 Michelin stars and 19/20 Gault-Millau points)! So of course, we had to ask them if they’d like to take part in our Kitchen Tunes series. And this is what Tim Raue himself wrote to us: “In the kitchen, I prefer silence. But my team really likes listening to music while cooking. And since they’re all great guys, the playlist is as diverse.” There’s nothing more to add other than: let yourself be surprised!
I hate to break it to you, but summer will be over at one point. Good thing is, you’ll have time to again enjoy the comfort of your own home, endless snuggling sessions on the couch with tv-shows, weekend mornings cuddled up in bed and so forth. Despite these days still being weeks away, I am suggesting you a new source for the most comfortable bed linens, soft blankets, cushions and much more: Urbanara.
For the first time in our Kitchen Tunes series, where we sneak into the kitchens of our favorite restaurants in Berlin, we head to Charlottenburg for the spectacle that is having dinner at Glass: their playlist is as diverse and well selected as their menu. A mix of good music ranging across the genres from Charlotte Gainsbourg to Rage Against The Machine.
