Food in Berlin: Lokal

It’s weird how some restaurants that are clearly on my list of all time favorite places in Berlin never appeared on this site. Maybe it’s because I take them for granted? Or maybe it’s because I expect you to know them all and thus consider it not necessary to “introduce” them? But well, it’s about time I at least express my love for this Mitte restaurant serving local and seasonal dishes. It’s my go-to place if I want to make sure I’ll have a nice, affordable and delicious meal in a pleasant and pretty atmosphere. It’s one of these places that rarely, if ever, disappoint.

Links in Berlin: Summer doesn’t mean a thing.

I’d love to start this one by moaning about the weather, but I can’t because one of the links in Berlin has done a way better job (read below). So I retreat to choosing a photograph of Mitte, depicting the beauty of a grim crossing: Jessica of Best Wishes Magazine took this one of Rosenthaler Platz (and tagged it #linksinberlin for all of us to see, thank you!). And I recommend you push play on Dena’s new hit – Summer doesn’t mean a thing. Because, really. And then read away:

Discover This: Lupu

It’s the very first scene of the film and it already sets the tone for what is to follow: Clara is sitting on the couch watching something that is hidden from our view. We start hearing regular slapping noises and when the camera cuts to a wider shot, we see a middle-aged man with his pants down masturbating in front of the young woman whose face is motionless and detached. Our perspective is that of Lupu, a young man who is watching from a distance and whose mysterious tale of lust, desire and death is told in this spellbinding new film from Romania.

Vegan in Berlin: Let it Be

I am so very happy about the growing vegan scene in Berlin – we already got many options to chose from, but can there ever be enough?
Yesterday I cycled down Weserstraße, that incredibly long stretch in Neukölln, where new cafés, shops and restaurants seem to open every week, to reach one of the recently opened contenders: Let it Be. The small eatery serves vegan crêpe and gluten-free galette with sweet or savory fillings, burgers and sweet treats to health-conscious people coming here from all over the city.

Berlin’s Best: Ice Cream Guide

We live in glorious ice cream times in Berlin, with new and creative parlors popping up all over the city while the troupers still excel in their craft. From Wilmersdorf to Neukölln and back, from vegan to Italian to sugar-crusted, it’s a paradise for everyone with a sweet and cold tooth. In order to supply you with the best frozen experience, we’ve compiled a list of Berlin’s best ice cream (from A to Z)! All strictly subjective, of course!
