Food in Berlin: Street Food Thursday

Something overly delicious is happening this week and I can’t wait! It’s been missing from the thriving and growing foodie scene of this city and I am very happy that Kitchensurfing, Markthalle IX and Big Stuff BBQ are making it happen: Berlin is getting its very own Street Food Thursday!

An assembly of highly talented young chefs, many of them not owning a restaurant or other food outlet (yet), will be presenting their creativity and quality in small bites for you to devour. While it’s happening for the first time this and then every coming Thursday from 5 to 10pm at Markthalle IX, I was so very lucky to be invited to have a sneak peak at the served goodies yesterday. And how good all of it was, you should so definitely head over there to get one piece of everything.

I was able to taste Fräulein Kimchi’s delicious Korean tacos with Cheddar and her own Kimchi, Leila Kristiansen’s incredibly heart-warming potato tarte tatin and Siripen Lingk’s Thai delicacies, but there is even more foodie-greatness to be discovered on the market – like original Allgäuer Kässpatzen, real English pies from Michael Minch, street food versions of Stefan Hartmann‘s award winning cuisine and of course the wildly popular grilled goods of Big Stuff BBQ, smoked fish by Glut&Späne and so much more!

A fest for your eyes, nose and tongues. Make sure to arrive with an empty stomach and some friends to be able to try as much as you and your appetite will like.

    I am about to move to Berlin and absolutely LOVE all these recommendations. Having lived in various parts of the world, I look out for world food. Love the look of what Fraulein Khimchi does. Can’t wait to try it when we’re next in Berlin. Keep them coming!

    the korean tacos were a joke, espensive and overcooked, the sole idea of a korean taco is a joke but had to try… fortunately there were also real mexican tacos of Pibil made by authentic mexicans soooo tasty and the salsas just glorious,,, SFT a great idea but a bit too crowded but the mexican tacos were worth the wait on the line.,,

      We experienced the exact opposite though, while we loved the Korean tacos we didn’t really go crazy about the carnitas…

    My wife and I will be traveling to Germany again this fall and will be trying to make it to Berlin this time. The pictures just made me hungry for places to try while there.

    “Potato Tarte Tatin invented by Leila Kristiansen”? You sure Ms. Kristiansen did not copy from yotam ottolenghi?

      It’s just a saying, of course she didn’t literally “invent” it.

    This looks so good all of it. I found your blog when I was looking for Korean places here in Berlin, cause it became a bit like my favourite food here :) I will really check out this place “Fräulein Kimchi” – it looks amazing!
