Did you know that this week will be the best week for this city’s foodies and food-activists? It’s Stadt Land Food everyone! A gigantic festival celebrating great food and good agriculture. Organized by Martkhalle IX, this festival will take over not only their own holy halls, but the surrounding streets and squares, where not only the biggest Street Food Thursday as of yet will happen, but also markets with wonderful products. And there’ll be an award for the best street food, and there’ll be workshops where real food crafts will be demonstrated and so much more, you better take a look at their website if you don’t want to miss out. A very special event happening during this week is Kavita Meelu’s newest adventure, a dinner series called Hidden Chefs! (Read closely, we’re giving away 1×2 dinner seats for one of them!)
This week already marks more than 10 editions of Kitchen Tunes on this very blog and we couldn’t have thought of a more fitting feature than Pauly Saal: It’s the perfect place in Mitte if you have something to celebrate, or just want to treat yourself to something special! We already once had a look into the kitchen and with today’s playlist, we get to know even more about the behind-the-scenes of running a fine dining restaurant. Get ready to be surprised!
To be perfectly honest, when I first passed by this recently opened café, I only thought “not another Prenzlauer Berg café…”. But this hasty judgement was obviously failing to realize Betty’n Caty’s offering is deliciously different from the rest. Read: banana porridge with blueberries for breakfast or quinoa salad with wild herbs, avocado and feta cheese for lunch. Intrigued? So was I!
Voo Store is one of our favorite concept stores in Berlin and when Heineken invited us last week for the presentation of their new city edition bottles, they couldn’t have found a more perfect place for it: everything was bathed in green light, the signature color of both Voo Store as well as the beer brand.

Many of you may already know Fräulein Kimchi from Street Food Thursday: famous for introducing Berliners to Ramen burgers, she not only knows a thing or two about preparing Kimchi – did you know that Lauren is also a trained opera singer? When working long late night shifts, we can only imagine her singing along to classics like Cindy Lauper or The Andrew Sisters in this week’s Kitchen Tunes! „It keeps me going when the tiredness sets in“, she says.
