Nothing beats comfort food, and I consider hummus to be one of my favorite comfort foods – delicious chickpeas mashed with tahini and cumin into a heart-warming paste to be devoured with fresh flat bread… divine! There’s more than one recipe for hummus and I like them all, may they be Israeli or Syrian, and I am very happy I found a new favorit in Wedding, although I have no idea what nationality is behind it: Akko is a deli at the bustling crossing of Pank- and Badstraße and is equally busy. But neither the hectic atmosphere nor the simple, almost canteen-like interior say anything about the quality of the food.
I’m sure you know about Veganz, one of the first vegan only supermarkets, that already has two markets in Berlin and one in Frankfurt. (Vienna is coming soon, I heard.) Furthermore, they offer a brunch in their show kitchen, where you can also join workshops and cooking classes and I finally! made it there over the Easter weekend.
I’m not a brunch person, I like my food served, skillfully arranged on a plate and not mixed by myself on a huge buffet with no clue about what goes best with what. Nevertheless, knowing about Veganz high quality approach and my personal affinity to vegan food, I overcame my brunch-aversion and went to Prenzlauer Berg to join their Sunday food feast. Nevertheless, although I tried my best in selecting and arranging, the pictures don’t do the food justice, so please excuse.
Still haven’t found a convenient place to have a delicious green smoothie (or juice) in Berlin, so I am making them myself. While the city is still very grey, this ultra green boost lightens up my days.
Ah, poached eggs for a weekend breakfast. It’s not on many menues in Berlin, and if, it’s not necessarily well made. Which means perfectly poached, with a runny yolk that’s hardened around the edges and a tasty Hollandaise with the perfect tartness of lemon. And I think I found a personal favorit this past Easter weekend, when I went to Chipps, the deli–restaurant owned by the makers of club Cookies and its restaurant Cookies & Cream
