It’s been getting a lot better, but it’s definitely not there yet – Indian food in Berlin is still a sensitive topic. While we do have some fast food joints and one place serving an updated and modern version of South Indian food, the real deal hast not yet arrived. However, there was a prime opportunity to enjoy the most amazing Indian menu at The Store Kitchen last week, when Kricket came over from London to cook up a feast.
The news about the situation of refugees in Berlin are still coming in, but they’ve slowed down. The situation has been calming down for several weeks now, since less and less refugees arrive in Berlin. Not because there are none, but because Europe is closing its borders.

When I went to Chutnify for the first time a little over a year ago it was like a revelation – finally this city had a delicious Indian option! It came in creative South Indian street food dishes, colorful and fresh, full of flavor and bursting with color. Over the year, this pretty place managed to expand its presence with stands at Street Food Thursday and adding a brunch menu to their location in Prenzlauer Berg. I went back a couple weeks ago to check if I still liked their food. And surprise, I really did.
Before talking about the results of the voting for Berlin’s Best Burger April 2016, let me tell you one of my favorite things about our beloved Burgers & Hip Hop party – the fact that you can arrive at, say, 5pm, fill your belly with food, top it with a delicious sweet treat, and then get into the crowd that’s already dancing and shaking around 8pm! I mean, where else in Berlin can one dance before 1am?! Just one more point in the long list of reasons why this is the best food party in Berlin.
