Karloff is a tiny space, 14 seats inside only, fitted into a neat square space, that not only holds the tables and chairs, but the wine shelfs and even the kitchen. A perfect use of space with a cosy yet stylish atmosphere, all done by the owner itself, Achille Farese. Don Farese, as the guy who looks through the small window facing Reichenberger Straße, calls him late at night, when we’re munching our second dessert. And a good name it is, because he’s a master host, making sure all guests leave with happy bellies and, or stay for another drink long after the last course was served. And about that food! The tastiest ingredients come together for a simple Italian meal boosting with flavor. For a mere 19,- for four courses!
Everybody’s on holiday right now, everybody! Even the whole kitchen team of dottir, beloved Nordic inspired restaurant in Mitte. That is, if you want to call a two week pop up in Hong Kong a holiday. To not leave their Berlin space unattended, the crew handed over the keys to chef Dalad Kambhu and artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, who’re using the time to bring contemporary, exciting Thai food to us hungry Berliners. You should be fast to book your table, the pop up only lasts another week and it surely is the most exciting Thai food in Berlin right now.

Some of you might not even know, but this very blog was once filled with photos of people on the street, the phenomenon called street style that was all the rage back in 2010. Hence I’m still often asked what the Berliner Stil is actually about: what is the one thing the style in Berlin comes down to? What’s the item we all have in common? And my one answer is: flats. Like this extraordinary pair of sneakers I’m wearing in this prime example of a 2016 street style photo.
