Food in Berlin: Sasaya

I guess many of you, who’ve been reading this blog for a while, are now like What!? Sasaya hasn’t been reviewed here? Why yes, it’s true. The probably most popular of all the Japanese restaurants in Berlin has not yet been featured on this very blog although there’s just no reason for that. And because it’s one of my favorites it totally fits the topic of the week, catching up.

Food in Berlin: Drei

Discover This: Fremd

Seven years after the start of production, Miriam Faßbender’s documentary Fremd (Foreign) has finally been released in Germany.

Fremd is a contemplative, yet highly political observation of patience and optimism in the face of despair. I met director Miriam Faßbender in Kreuzberg to talk about her film.
