Lunch at Kantine Neun - stilinberlin

Revisited: Kantine Neun

Many of the eateries I recommend on this website are my personal favorites where I repeatedly spend my lunch breaks and dinner times. I mean, this is kind of self-evident, but it isn’t necessarily reflected in the content of this blog, since a review’s usually a one-time-thing. This is why I decided to revive some recommendations with a photographed revisit. This time it’s Kantine Neun, the more than wonderful lunch institution in Berlin’s culinary mecca Markthalle IX.

Leather harness at DSTM, Berlin

Shop in Berlin: DSTM

It’s actually embarrassing, that this blog post is written only now. It should’ve been written months ago, when this beauty of a little boutique opened. Considering I met Jen Gilpin, the owner and creative director of the label DSTM for the first time over six years ago and have followed her career ever since. Anyway, take a look into one of the prettiest boutiques of Mitte: DSTM.

Vegan in Berlin: Lucky Leek

If you’d ask me, when it comes to vegan food, Berlin still has a lot to do. Yes, there’s the wonderful Veganz with its two stores, and there’s the delicious Goodie’s delis (who just opened their fifth joint in Schlachtensee, but is not thinking about Mitte or Kreuzberg…), and then there are the gazillion vegan burger or burrito places, but if you’re not at all going for this fast vegan food, it can be difficult.
But what am I talking about, there are possibilities, and one very fine for a delicious 100% vegan dinner is Lucky Leek.
