Some people call the Kantstraße the Chinatown of Berlin, which is basically a ridiculous exaggeration. If at all, it could be called Asia-town, or maybe Asia-street, which makes no sense and should thus be dismissed. Still, most of Berlin’s prolific Asian restaurants and shops are to be found on this street, and this very blog is in fact working hard on compiling reviews on all the worthwhile joints, until now led by our favorites Dao and Aroma. So I was very happy to follow a recommendation for Papaya.

My relationship with this bakery began in a time long past, back when I used to live in the area around Schlesisches Tor and would be on my way home from going out, some time between 4 and 7am on a Sunday morning. And Salut would always be open and always have my favorite Turkish pastry – Tahinischnitten. A flaky pastry filled with sesame paste, Tahini, that is to be eaten as fresh as possible.
The best, the perfect, the greatest month of all has finally come: May is here. Please proceed to celebrate this most beautiful time of the year, go out and dance on the streets, have a picknick and wear your best sun-dress – ENJOY! There’s only one May first a year.
I guess many of you, who’ve been reading this blog for a while, are now like What!? Sasaya hasn’t been reviewed here? Why yes, it’s true. The probably most popular of all the Japanese restaurants in Berlin has not yet been featured on this very blog although there’s just no reason for that. And because it’s one of my favorites it totally fits the topic of the week, catching up.
I decided, I’ll do a little catching up this week – out of whatever reason, some of my absolute favorite places in Berlin have not yet been covered on this blog. And we’re starting with one of my most beloved places for dinner: Drei. Although I’m not even sure that’s the official name.
