French Toast in Friedrichshain: Fine Bagels

It’s fair to say, that I was already growing impatient when it came to Fine Bagel’s Challah French Toast Sunday. So my heart jumped a little when I saw the new announcement on their social media. I attended last summer, and then missed out on at least three of them because I was traveling, and then I guess they took a little break but now they’re back! Why I’m that excited: because Challah French Toast is amazing! Made from the Jewish Challah bread, which is dipped in a very vanilla egg mixture, fried to perfection, and then served with maple sirup it will give you all the good feels needed.

Natural Wine in Neukölln: JAJA

Don’t let the current rays of sun and shine fool you, Berlin winters are the worst! THE WORST!! There are no upsides to freezing temperatures, dark days, low hanging clouds, having to wear the same black coat day in, day out, eating only apples and cabbage because nothing grows in this Siberian climate. But wait, what about long winter nights spent in cosy bars with loads of dark wine, some treats, and good friends to share your desperation with? Isn’t that “nice”? Ja, Ja … I mean, I guess one could call this a delightful way to spend the icy days… especially if natural wine comes together with delicious food in a suprime pairing at this bar in Neukölln one could say there are way worse places to be right now.

Lunch in Mitte: Ryong

Admittedly, Asian-fusion concepts opening up on Torstraße where rents for commercial spaces have sky-rocketed over the past years, don’t necessarily get my hopes up. However, something interested me enough about this new restaurant to put it on my list of the ten new places we all must try, so I went there more or less immediately. And I’m super happy to report: it’s delicious and absolutely perfect for cold winter days!

Coffee & Cake in Mitte: Five Elephant

As announced in the “The New Food Spots We Have To Try” article, Five Elephant has ventured from Kreuzberg and into the heart of Mitte, opening a small but very pretty new shop on Alte Schönhauser Straße, just next to high scale fashion and beauty stores. They’re offering their well known and trusted coffee drinks, as well as cakes in newer, probably more Mitte-appropriate sizes. A great addition to the thriving Berlin coffee scene.

Still Delicious: Kanaan

Leading the list of the ten most popular food spots of 2016, the vegetarian, Israeli-Palestinian Kanaan by the railroad tracks in Prenzlauer Berg was indeed due for a re-visit. I’m super jealous about everyone living close by, or even closer by, not having to put up with a 30min commute to get there… Unfortunately, they closed their Kreuzberg spot after a few months last Autumn, but have since expanded their menu in their original location to include even more hummus specials.
