A weekend of heavy and delicious over-eating is coming up, let me tell you that – because before you’re heading for burger heaven at Burgers & Hip Hop’s Smoked Meat Special, you’ll have to join the feast that is the seasonal morning food celebration Das Brunch. It’s the tenth edition, and maybe even the last? This time, it’s happening in a former freight depot turned center for arts and culture, ZK/U, in Moabit, it will definitely be a feast for the eyes and your palate, with brunch dishes that fuse Australian, German, and Middle-Eastern flavours – read on for a droolworthy menu-preview!
Summer is what you make of it, so we’ll definitely be all in for the upcoming Burgers & Hip Hop party on Saturday, August 5, in your favourite backyard off Moritzplatz. To make things even better we chose a very special theme: it’ll be all about smoked meat! All of those smoking hot burger artists will be putting the finest smoky meats in between two buns for you to enjoy – come join us in the backyard of Prince Charles, when we celebrate Burgers & Hip Hop topped with a serving of Soul with a hot side of a soul train dance battle!
Now that Sweethearts’ final weekend is here, I want to give you an alternative in the same area, that is equally delicious and creative: Isla – a pretty speciality coffee shop on the gritty corner of Hermannstraße and Columbiadamm. With an eye for sustainability, they’re striving to reach a harmonious business by reducing waste and creating holistic production cycles. Which makes their brunch only better, that is – the bread pudding is made with left-over kouign amann and left-over steamed milk is turned into ricotta. And did I mention they’re doing it in a really pretty way?

It’s a well known fact that Brammibal’s is not only making the best vegan donuts in town, but the best donuts in general. But did you know that besides baking a plethora of ring-shaped delicacies every day, you can also enjoy an equally lavish while still completely vegan brunch at their place by the canal in Neukölln?
