Brunch at Geist im Glas

Brunch in Kreuzkölln: Geist im Glas

Ah, another add-on to our brunch-directory! And what a hefty one. It’s pretty much common knowledge that brunch is a dish best served with cocktails, right? Being that it was originally conceived as a “lighter” meal for those Saturday night carousers who could seriously do with a pick-me-up the morning after. What better then than a top-notch bar that serves food? Indeed. Lucky us! Because your favourite Kreuzkölln Whisky-bar Geist im Glas now serves a killer brunch, meaning that you can (or should?) pretty much just stay there for the whole weekend.

Berlin’s Best Burger: Tropical Edition

Oh what a day and night we had – hot and humid, sweet and spicy, devouring and dancing. Eight burger artists came together for Burgers & Hip Hop in the backyard of Prince Charles to celebrate tropical patties and exotic add-ons like grilled pineapple, coconut slaw, bourbon pickles, mango salsa and fried plantain.
Besides savoring those treats and shaking those bums, we were there to find the new bearer of the much coveted Berlin’s Best Burger trophy. Using a new voting system, where each visitor had a chip to vote for the best while the pre-sale Burger Feast tickets included a double vote, we got more votes than ever and a result that might (or might not) surprise you!

Lunch in Neukölln: Stella

Lunch on a workday can be tough. You want something healthy yet filling, enough to carry you through the rest of the day. You want something new, yet nothing experimental because time and focus are limited. You want something close by, yet not too close because you need the walk…Or am I only talking about my own needs at noon? Because on paper, that sounds a bit complicated. And yet, there are places catering to such demands, and here’s a new one: Stella.

US-American in Neukölln: MJ’S Foodshop (Closed)

After starting the week all zen and light with a post about a yoga-festival, this article will surely reset the/ a balance. After visiting this joint on the bustling Sonnenallee, you’re sure to leave feeling heavy, full and more than a little self indulgent. The menu ticks pretty much all of the quintessential, American, comfort-food boxes with serving sizes to match. For the days when your stomach yearns to be filled, and your palate craves carbs and nostalgia (be that real or imagined from years of watching U.S tv): welcome to MJ’S Foodshop.

Earthwalking Festival

Yoga in Berlin: Earthwalking Festival

When I started to do yoga in a random gym several years ago, I didn’t realize how lucky I was that this random gym employed what would become my favorite yoga teacher ever: Deborah Haaksman taught yoga in such a natural and never patronizing, yet holistic, energizing and inspiring way, I have not come to find someone like her. I didn’t even know the name of her style of yoga, just loved the way she explained and demonstrated the poses and breathing techniques, and induced this happiness inside of me whenever I finished her class. She’s not teaching regularly at the moment, but is working together with Sita Menon and Nicola Tröger to prepare an intense weekend to present her yoga teaching of Forrest Yoga, named after its creator Ana Forrest, and it is coming up soon: Earthwalking Festival is happening end of August and we’re giving away two day-passes…
