baked eggs at Silo, Friedrichshain

Breakfast in Berlin: Silo

My repeated complains about the lack of good breakfast food in our beloved hometown seem to have worked and more and more local restaurateurs have taken on the challenge. The newest addition to my breakfast-love-list is Silo, the pretty Aussie café in Friedrichshain, serving delicious baked eggs, avocado on toast and a sweet dish that will get you out of bed and onto the East-bound train any morning.

Lunch in Kreuzberg: Vabrique

Isn’t it weird how quick we are to establish routines and stick to our known routes? Seems like a particular problem when it comes to lunch on office-days. I moved my office to Kreuzberg end of 2013, to an area with a plethora of options to try and it still took me until two weeks ago to eat at Vabrique. It was about time.

Mario Testino: „In Your Face“

Mario Testino is one of, if not the most famous living photographer world-wide, famous for his many glamorous shots of supermodels like Kate Moss, celebrities like Madonna, and public figures like Princess Diana. I am very certain you’ve seen at least one of his pictures – if not, you now have the chance to see a very well selected range of them in big size and excellent print quality in his new exhibition at Kunstbibliothek.

Six Soups: to keep you warm in Winter

Soup night is my favorite night in winter, when Berlin can be so cold and grey, we tend to forget why we ever liked this city. Luckily, Berlin offers (not plenty but) enough coping strategies, first and foremost: steaming hot soups that will warm your belly and your soul and keep your mind from breaking thanks to the ice cold winds from the East. Let’s drown in bowls of soups filled with thick noodles, hearty broths and loads of flavor. Aka: plan your winter depression along this soup-route:

This is a first look onto the construction site of what will soon be Zenkichi – a modern Japanese brasserie serving fancy dishes like shrimp and Camembert tempura. Not only will the food be served in cosy separate food booths, but the restaurant will also feature a real chef’s table inside of the spacious kitchen. It will open beginning of February at Johannisstraße 20, mark your calendars.
