Oh the veggie and vegan burgers, what a high art cuisine, tried by many, failed by most, and mastered only by a chosen few. While nearly every burger place in town also has a vegetarian and oftentimes even vegan burger on their menu, that doesn’t mean the choice of good ones would be plenty. Rather the opposite. There’s also no correlation of meat-grilling-talents and vegan artistry, a place serving a great beef-burger doesn’t necessarily (or possibly never?) also has the skills to do a good veggie one…
Avoiding the game seems to be not only a difficult thing, but also an idea that mostly evokes astonishment (“why in hell wouldn’t you want to see THE game?!”) if not even total lack of understanding (“what are you, crazy?”). But it’s true – I like to not see any games, because I just don’t care. And get even a little intimidated by the crowds cheering for a certain national team. But I still like to go out, instead of backtracking into my home, closing all windows and watch a movie with headphones on.
However, the solitude and quiet you experience when visiting a place during a game that is actually not showing it, is priceless. Like this time during the first game of Germany when I went grocery shopping and there where no lines. Or during the second game when the park was so empty it felt like Christmas (only with better temperatures). However, finding those places is not easy, since football seems to be everywhere. This is why I made this little list for those, who are joining my disinterest.
We live in glorious ice cream times in Berlin, with new and creative parlors popping up all over the city while the troupers still excel in their craft. From Wilmersdorf to Neukölln and back, from vegan to Italian to sugar-crusted, it’s a paradise for everyone with a sweet and cold tooth. In order to supply you with the best frozen experience, we’ve compiled a list of Berlin’s best ice cream (from A to Z)! All strictly subjective, of course!
The discussion about where to have the best coffee in Berlin is a highly emotional one, supporters of the Third Wave Coffee movement demand elaborate technical brewing methods and lovers of the Italian style ask for the softest foam – we’re left in between. Appreciating a cold brew on hot days, as well as a comforting espresso with smooth milk as a pick-me-up on slow work-day afternoons. Lucky for us, Berlin’s coffee scene is thriving to say the least. While the ultra-hype might have cooled off over the past two years, having a delicious coffee is still a big concern for many of us. In this list, we’re covering our favorite places (sorted from A-Z) for a caffeine kick, from new-comers like 19 grams, big hitters like The Barn, to the established institutions like Double Eye. Just to make sure you’ll get a good coffee wherever you are. (At least almost, beyond the park is a whole other story.)
Berlin is gorgeous these days, luscious green trees meet blush pink blossoms everywhere, people are radiating pure happiness thanks to superblue skies and abundance of sunshine, only interrupted by showers of rain to spruce up the thriving nature even more. It’s the best of times to visit our lovely city and I’ve got some tips to share for a sweet weekend in Berlin!
