I’m in the middle of a super busy week, some of it self-inflicted, some of it just owed to the season – aka the last weeks of the year which are always the busiest. Which might be why I’m very, very drawn to soup-y, stew-y kinda meals, something warming, yet not weighing you down. And to sugar, to keep me somewhat running… Beginning of this week, I decided to put the last remaining copies of the 2018 “Best Places in Berlin” Map on sale (for a limited time, order them here) And, Warm Up, my clothing donation event benefitting local voluntary organisation Kreuzberg Hilft is coming up. It’s that time of year where I’d wish for an assistant / a second person to run this. Without further complaints, here’s what I ate this week and whether I liked it (mostly, yes!).

Isn’t that the combo you’re craving during this first weeks of icy weather? Definitely the chili noodles! And why not a donut for dessert? Hmmm… yus. Just as good to get that warming belly fat growing is one or three portions of hummus, topped with falafel, fresh bread, veggies and all the oil. By the way, the chili noodles are only available again tomorrow and I don’t want you to miss out on them. (Otherwise you’ll have to wait till the next pop-up…)
Hope you had a nice first wintry weekend with loads of cosy blankets, hot beverages and a working heating. Icy temperatures can be so much fun! If you have the funds to make them so. Not everyone is so lucky to be able to afford the most insulating jacket or the thickest boots to enjoy below zero, especially if you’re in a situation that doesn’t allow you to work or face obstacles you’re currently not able to remove. And I assume most of you reading this have one or three winter items to spare at home, maybe you’re even currently thinking about where to donate that skiing jacket you’ll never use. For the fifth time, I’ll be collecting winter warmers to donate to people in need Warm Up #5. This year, it’s happening on December 16th at Markthalle Neun’s Breakfast Market. And yes, I’ve got some fabulous rewards for your effort.
This is an odd week, isn’t it? If you follow me on the ‘gram, you know I’ve been struggling with this feeling of oddness since Monday, and then yesterday my dog slipped on the banks of the canal and fell down into the water with a big splash – not voluntarily, she prefers temperatures above 35 degree celsius to get soaked. I managed to pull her out by the neck, and she was fine 30 mins later, but, oh’ the drama. Anyhow, something’s off right now, and it’s even showing in my dining choices! From the three places I went to last week, only one was good. Albeit, the good one is a trustworthy choice: the people at Hallmann & Klee in Neukölln just know what they’re doing, hence the line out the door all weekend.
How was your week? Did you have a good one? Any good food? Any new places? Okay, you’re right, I have no idea how to write a sleek intro to this week’s Eats article so better just get into it.
Ah and by the way, please let me know whether you like this new format! (Or what you dislike about it…)
