The Best Places in Berlin: A Map

Many times I’ve considered the idea of assembling a best-of list comprising my absolute favorite Berlin spots. Yet instead of writing up a listicle, we once again left the safe paths of the web to move into the thrilling field of print. It took some paper wrangling and some heightened discussion over the merits of one location over another, but now that it’s finished I am very proud to say: the map is here!

Running on the Scenic Route with adidas #3: Canal and Parks

For today’s scenic running I am taking you to my absolute favorite running route in Berlin – I’ve been running this route when I first started running in Berlin and have been using it as my favorite half marathon training route the past couple weeks. What I love about it? First, you’re running by the beautiful Landwehrkanal and the Spree, and running by the water is always something special. Second, it’s so flexible, you can run 5k, 10k, 15k and even 20k without ever having to leave the parks or Spree or having to take the same way back (just switch the sides of the canal). Come with me…

Chinese in Berlin: Shan Shan

After telling you that this one grim imbiss on Seestraße is serving delicious Chinese food last summer (only to row back on that recommendation when their chef left this winter) I am now asking you to enter a completely unremarkable guesthouse in Prenzlauer Berg, take a seat in their lobby/restaurant area, and enjoy some very delicious Chinese dishes.
A bit too much, you say? Yes, the place looks seriously unremarkable and advertises its food with a sign saying “Asian European Kitchen”. Besides their food business, the same space functions as reception desk, bar, lobby and breakfast area for the guesthouse on the upper levels of the same house. However, its kitchen is run by a very talented Chinese cook, and serves delicious traditional dishes to adventurous eaters (who don’t care about interior design). Seriously.

Brunch in Berlin: Papi Crunch

This is the first time an article on this very blog has the word “brunch” in the headline. This might not be a surprise, by now I have voiced my troubles with brunch and/or our lovely city’s breakfast offerings multiple times. However, my complaints were only made to motivate me for a restless search for the perfect morning meal, and you might be happy to hear about a new opportunity to indulge in international breakfast cuisine: Papi Crunch.
