Whenever we have friends visiting, I can’t stop talking about the Berlin food scene and all the things they have to try while they’re here (trying to fit everything into only a few days time) – like the best hummus around the corner, followed by a stroll around Street Food Thursday and not to forget a Sunday picknick at Thai Park!
Many of Berlin’s entrepreneurs are people who started out with the idea of wanting to do something different, they become so-called Quereinsteiger. Like Daniela Teuper, who went on a vacation to Italy and loved the gelato so much, upon her return, she wanted nothing more than to open her own ice cream shop.
Back in Germany, she decided to quit her job in the music industry to dedicate her time and passion to making delicious ice cream. Fast forward one year, she’s the owner of Mos Eisley, a parlor in Neukölln frequented by ice cream enthusiasts young and old.
It’s THE produce all Germans are waiting for each spring – this year the season started a lot earlier than usual, the short weeks of white-root-fun are treasured in many households. And I also tend to order asparagus every time I see it on a menu – I prefer the white queen classic style, with boiled potatoes and either brown butter or sauce hollandaise, nothing more. But fresh herbs are much appreciated. Where do you like to have your Spargel?
A day and night filled with burgers and Hip Hop tunes lies behind us. And honestly, I can’t wait for the next round already, because I had a blast. With all of the vendors being new to me (except last round’s winner District Một), I was excited to see what they came up with. And innovative they were, we had Kimchi burgers, Mexican burgers with corn buns, burgers made from Yak meat… and last but not least, the first appearance of a Ramen burger. But who ruled the competition? Who grilled the juiciest patty, prepped the best toppings and baked the tastiest bun?
We’ve counted over 200 votes – and you actually won’t believe the results…
You thought we were over it, haven’t you? Actually, we aren’t. It’s time for the next round! Burgers & Hip Hop is coming up this Saturday at Prince Charles and we’re having another important yet tasty Berlin’s Best Burger voting. Come by and enjoy the deliciousness of grill masters like Mr SUSAN, j.kinski, Maria Maria, YAK CHEF and Transformer – never heard of any of them? We neither, which is why we’re even more excited!
