How to make it in Berlin: Zwei Dicke Bären

I am beyond happy that so many young entrepreneurs in Berlin are making it, bringing an idea to life, creating new enterprises for us to enjoy, and turning innovative concepts into working businesses. And I’m not the only one! Justine Simonson and Marcus Lehmann from New York came to Berlin to film a series on how those creative geniuses not only have the guts to start a business, but also the brains to sustain it. And here’s a new web series celebrating them.

Brunch at Geist im Glas

Brunch in Kreuzkölln: Geist im Glas

Ah, another add-on to our brunch-directory! And what a hefty one. It’s pretty much common knowledge that brunch is a dish best served with cocktails, right? Being that it was originally conceived as a “lighter” meal for those Saturday night carousers who could seriously do with a pick-me-up the morning after. What better then than a top-notch bar that serves food? Indeed. Lucky us! Because your favourite Kreuzkölln Whisky-bar Geist im Glas now serves a killer brunch, meaning that you can (or should?) pretty much just stay there for the whole weekend.

Berlin’s Best Burger: Tropical Edition

Oh what a day and night we had – hot and humid, sweet and spicy, devouring and dancing. Eight burger artists came together for Burgers & Hip Hop in the backyard of Prince Charles to celebrate tropical patties and exotic add-ons like grilled pineapple, coconut slaw, bourbon pickles, mango salsa and fried plantain.
Besides savoring those treats and shaking those bums, we were there to find the new bearer of the much coveted Berlin’s Best Burger trophy. Using a new voting system, where each visitor had a chip to vote for the best while the pre-sale Burger Feast tickets included a double vote, we got more votes than ever and a result that might (or might not) surprise you!

Lunch in Neukölln: Stella

Lunch on a workday can be tough. You want something healthy yet filling, enough to carry you through the rest of the day. You want something new, yet nothing experimental because time and focus are limited. You want something close by, yet not too close because you need the walk…Or am I only talking about my own needs at noon? Because on paper, that sounds a bit complicated. And yet, there are places catering to such demands, and here’s a new one: Stella.

US-American in Neukölln: MJ’S Foodshop

After starting the week all zen and light with a post about a yoga-festival, this article will surely reset the/ a balance. After visiting this joint on the bustling Sonnenallee, you’re sure to leave feeling heavy, full and more than a little self indulgent. The menu ticks pretty much all of the quintessential, American, comfort-food boxes with serving sizes to match. For the days when your stomach yearns to be filled, and your palate craves carbs and nostalgia (be that real or imagined from years of watching U.S tv): welcome to MJ’S Foodshop.
