You remember that giant mountain of rhubarb pavlova served at the 10th birthday of stilinberlin? I couldn’t forget it, dreamed about it, even. So when I came back to enjoy one of the first evening services of The Store Kitchen, I was over the moon to meet this glorious dessert again.
It’s almost time, you guys! The big birthday Breakfast Market feast celebrating this very blog’s 10th birthday is happening this Sunday at Markthalle Neun! Unless you follow me on Snapchat (find me as stilinberlin, obvs), you don’t yet know that I visited three of my breakfast superstars and photographed (and tested) what they’ll be serving on Sunday – just to make your mouths water a little more in anticipation. And it’s insanely delicious – they’ve certainly put in some passion and creativity to make sure we’re having meaty, vegetarian and vegan options you can’t find anywhere else in Berlin at this time of day. So get your stomachs ready and start drooling now:
Torstraße 1, formerly only known as Soho House, and by now also home to the fabulous The Store and its Kitchen, got a new addition: a fancy Italian place going by the name of Cecconi’s. Originated in Venice, this Italian restaurant can be found in London, West Hollywood, Miami Beach, Istanbul and now also in Mitte. Serving dishes from Northern Italy in an Art-Deco inspired and quite luxe interior, it’s a prime spot for important business meetings, fancy dates and any time you want a decent pizza baked in the most gorgeous marble oven.
Brunch’s been getting real good in Berlin. Seriously, unexpectedly good. While a few years ago the poached egg was only found at upscale hotels, no serious morning food venture can write its menu without, today. However, not everyone manages to cook it to perfection (and can we please remember that other treatments also suit that yolk well), but those who poach it right rank high on my list. Here’s a new one, that could also be called big, huge, or even giant, but is actually going by the name Little Joy.
Sadly, it can be hard to dine out on a Monday night in Berlin. I know that because I’ve tried several times and found many of my favorites to be closed.Of course, there are loads of imbiss-y places that are there for us, but it’s certainly harder to find a nice place to sit down and enjoy table-service. Which is why I made this nifty little guide, researching which restaurants that I liked were actually open. It’s not that many! Here to help:
