Last week we had the pleasure of savoring another round of “Berlin’s Best Bread”, tasting sourdoughs, toasts, and multi-grain breads from the finest bakeries in the city to find the most delicious of them. A carb-feast celebrated by a jury of bread-lovers, with samples from artisanal bakeries judged in two categories by many criteria and loads of discussions. In the end we had two winners, however, almost all of the submitted baked goods were of very good quality. So while you enjoy reading the following ranking, keep in mind that all of the bakeries are worth a visit, pursuing traditional and artisanal bread baking. But for now, let yourself be surprised who won this year’s “Berlin’s Best Bread”!
Last Friday I cycled up to Prenzlauer Berg to indulge in a night of ciders and cheese happening at Comptoir du Cidre in cooperation with Brie et ses amis, an online-shop for cheese. Wait what!? An online shop for cheese? What has become of this world, you ask? But if you put your doubts aside, my friend, you’re in for a treat. Because this cider and cheese feast is delicious.
This pretty burger’s name is KRS-Bun, it’s Piri’s newest addition to their veggie burger menu and it is really delicious. Filled with tofu bathed in melted cheese, it has a surprisingly sultry “cheese-steak”-like texture, which is then smothered in sauteed red onions and generous Chipotle mayo, giving this veggie cheese burger a nice spice. You might know Piri’s as the winners of Berlin’s Best Cheese Burger, no wonder they’ve got some cheese-pertise.
We’re all producing way too much waste. Seriously. You know it, I know it, we all do. Just, many of us don’t do much about it.
Here to help you start re-considering your own waste-production and, consequently, change it, is a food store in Kreuzberg that is (almost) waste-free: Original Unverpackt.
It wasn’t because of a lack of excitement – mine was big enough to put this tiny place on the “Ten Restaurants You Have To Try This Winter” list. Sure, Okonomiyaki is not a refined recipe to begin with, ranging more in the likes of hang-over-fast-food, designed to fill your belly with carbs and sodium. And this is basically the only dish served here. But you’ll never guess what’s really the best thing on their menu…
