This whole-in-the-wall sushi place has been there as long as I can think, and if one wants to believe what the internet says, it’s been there since the wall came down. And it’s still very good sushi.

On one of these ultra-hot days this week, I went to see a little preview of the new pieces of some young Berlin designers for a story I photographed for Mercedes-Benz. This is an caption of Vladimir Karaleev’s new designs, that he will present in less than two weeks. Loads of whites will come together with a beautiful denim and some more technical fabrics, he hasn’t used before.
Having lunch, albeit working in Mitte in between dozens of options, always starts with the question where to have it. Everything has been tried, either approved or dismissed, every favorit has been re-visited countless times and the opening of new spots is always eagerly awaited. And just recently, a reader suggested a new opening named after their main offer: momos.
I like when the name of a store tells everything about it: Located in the prettiest area of Kreuzberg, Graefekiez, lies this little store that only features süper (as in: awesome) items. From stork shaped scissors to Swiss Obstbrände (fruit schnaps), from jewelry by Saskia Diez to hammam towels, they present a lovely selection of products that are just very nice and good looking and still useful.
One of my favorite spots for a super healthy lunch is Goodies*, a vegetarian and vegan deli with by now four locations in Berlin. Its home base lies on Friedrichshain’s Warschauer Straße, while its outlets are housed in the stores of Veganz in Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain, as well as in the gigantic Globetrotter store in Steglitz.
