WeShare Made in Berlin: Tiergarten Kieztour

(Advertising)

A couple of weeks ago, WeShare asked me to explore the area around Potsdamer Straße and Tiergarten, and share my finds as part of the three-part #WeShareMadeinBerlin series. The 100% electric car-sharing service wants to inspire you to discover Berlin’s unique Kiez culture – silently and sustainably. Some of my very, very favorite spots in Berlin are actually located in the area. First of all, Kin Dee, a popular, Michelin-starred restaurant: Dalad Kambhu’s approach to cooking is always delicious, straight-forward, and reflective, she uses local produce to create dishes evoking the flavors of her home country, Thailand. You can watch the video of us chatting, cooking, and meeting inspiring local suppliers of Dalad – like her ceramist Lisa Kosak of Helka Ceramics, and her farmer Lena Buss of Good Food Syndicate – here. A couple of days later, when the snow had melted, I set out on my own Kieztour, got in a 100% electric WeShare VW ID.3 (what a smooth driving experience!), and went to four chosen spots, to get lunch, dessert, dinner, and some very important pantry items. Check my selection below:

IG Live Series: Food & Stuff

Let’s get back on Insta Live! I have some stuff I wanna talk about… So I invited three of the people I love to discuss things with to join me in a three day series –
Als erstes sprechen Sinthujan Varatharajah @varathas und ich am Dienstag, 16.02., darüber, was eigentlich “lokal” ist. Dieses Buzzword wird in der Foodie Szene ja gern gebraucht um progressive Nachhaltigkeit zu markieren – aber was wird damit eigentlich gemeint und vor allem, was (und wer) nicht?
On Wednesday Feb 17 Kavita Meelu @kavitagoodstar and I will go down memory lane to explore what has changed in the foodie scene of our hometown – and maybe we’ll even dare to look into the future into what will (and needs to) change (still).
Und am Donnerstag, 18.02., besprechen Vanessa Vu @vanessa_vu und ich, warum nicht alle Bubble Tea so sehr lieben (wie wir), was das mit der deutschen Geschichte zu tun hat, und wer in der Stadt unseren Lieblingstee macht.
Ich freu mich! See you then!

Seriously: The Ten Best Shops for Holiday Gifts in Berlin

Somehow, the 2020 holiday season is of even more importance than any other year. It might be, because it’s literally the only cheerful thing going on in our lives. I for one have definitely enjoyed thinking about what to gift, may it be small baked goods for my neighbours or more conceptual packages for my loved ones. So why not share my trusted sources in the city?

Seriously: The Ten Best Places to Eat in Berlin in 2020

It’s a weird year, my friends. The pandemic has changed all of our lives, and will continue to do so, even though we’re lucky with number of cases and fatalities in Germany and Berlin. I had to postpone the publication of my Best of Berlin 2020 guide from March to June, while losing a lot of other income myself. I’m very glad, that so many of you decided to support me by buying it, especially since I’m aware your own budgets for dining out and shopping have likely decreased. The support of the local community has been essential for our small-scale businesses, who’re doing their best to push through this crisis that is far from over. When I talk to young owners, they are most concerned with doing their best to serve you while keeping their staff safe and their finances in tact.
Carefully selecting where we spend our own money is more important than ever, and I wanna give you some ideas: here’s a list of where to get the best food in Berlin – in my mind. These are the restaurants I tell my friends they need to go to, the cafés I recommend to my guests, and the eateries I will queue for, essentially my own list of top food places in Berlin. It’s subjective, for sure, so you might miss your own favourite – don’t hesitate to put it in the comments!
