Dining in Berlin: Lode & Stijn

I finally went to Lode & Stijn, halleluja! I was so excited to go all the time and still it took me too many weeks, and I don’t even have a reason for that. And then I wanted to write about it instantly but went to Japan for two weeks and now I’m back and looking at the pictures and wanna go again right now. So without further explanations, let’s get to the food…

French in Berlin: Les Valseuses

Entering Les Valseuses in Prenzlauer Berg is like entering the house of old friends: I am greeted with enthusiasm by the owners Olivier and Julien, and I am instantly asking myself why I haven’t been here for a year.
I’ve been a regular guest at their first restaurant, Themroc on Torstraße, back when they opened in 2009; and when they left it to start their own Les Valseuses in 2012, I was excited and followed them, documenting the action in their kitchen. However, I haven’t been a lot in the past months, and I really don’t know why…* Because Les Valseuses is a lovely place, with great food, very good wine, and, even more important and surprisingly still not a given in Berlin, two incredibly warm hosts that make every visit feel special.

Korean in Berlin: Madang

This recommendation comes with a bit of a catch, because this is not a place you can just go and order anything. Some items on the menu are delicious, some are surprisingly bland. And while I am usually the first to rule a place out because of inconsistency, the dishes that are made well, are so good, you won’t find them anywhere else in Berlin… Like the Doengjang Jigae, a stew made of Korean fermented soy-bean paste.

Food in Berlin: Industry Standard

I’ve been looking forward to eating in this restaurant on Sonnenallee in Neukölln for a long time. Not only because it’s been on the list of the 10 restaurants I want to try this Spring, but mainly because people have been raving about it, asking if I’ve already been, how I liked it, etc. With some of them even adding that they really wanted me to like this place. And… I do. I don’t only like it, I downright fell in love with their food. With their beautiful radishes, their tempura lemon (!) and their divine veggie bacon… I loved it! And I am pretty sure you will too.
