Oh Wilmersdorf, you beautiful district beyond the park, brimmed with undiscovered West-Berlin delights and blessed with the city’s maximum density of very fine Chinese restaurants. Like this place just off the hectic Bundesallee, called Shaniu’s House of Noodles and specializing in hand pulled noodles served in different varieties (still a rarity in this city, surprisingly).

How many of your New Year’s resolutions did you give up already? The one to exercise more? The one to finally separate your waste? Or maybe the one to eat cleaner, healthier or greener? I might have something for you to make the latter one a tat easier: Liquid Garden.
It’s so lovely to watch Berlin grow as a foodie-city and enjoy its rising fame and the fruits of a decade-long development. 2014 has been an especially good year for food in Berlin, not only because I discovered new favorites and cherished old time loves, we enjoyed great food festivals, listened to kitchen tunes and watched new initiatives bloom, but because you, the readers, have developed an even bigger craving for recommendations and then showered the reviewed places with loads of love making their effort worthwhile. 2015 holds new promises, but let’s rest for a moment and praise the stars of the past year with a list of the ten most popular food places of 2014.
Yes, I am basically sharing my winter-to-eat-list with you, as Berlin is now a city where so many new restaurants open, us very professional food-explorers need a list to not overlook one. As with all new openings some of them might still have some bugs to fix and thus deserve more leeway than the ones who’ve been around for some time. Which is the reason I rarely visit a place during the first weeks, because most of them need at least a month to bring everything up to standard. We’ve got months of cold and dark days ahead of us, that prospect will instantly feel lighter when there’s a dinner or lunch at one these newbies planned. Eat on:
Still don’t know what to give for Christmas? Well, why not go local and bring something from the city we all love the most? But don’t fret, this list doesn’t recommend plush-Currywurst-toys or ombre-Fernsehturm-candles, but original and beautiful products by small and independent brands in Berlin. Husch, Husch, Go shop!
