Mexican in Berlin: Burrito Baby

As it lay there before me in all its glory, I couldn’t help but remember the words of one foursquare-review, which called those bulging bundles newborn-sized. Wrapped in an almost white corn tortilla, white paper and nicely resting on a white plate with a slice of lime, the visual association easily crosses one’s mind. I mean, look ath the results of a short google picture search for “Burrito Baby”…
Tales surrounding this Neukölln burrito bar are heard throughout the city: eulogies of their delicious food as well as struggles with their inconsistent opening hours and at times impossible waiting lines. And finally I made it there (tried before, it was closed), to the place where the best Mexican food is served. And it’s vegan!

Food in Berlin: Lokal

It’s weird how some restaurants that are clearly on my list of all time favorite places in Berlin never appeared on this site. Maybe it’s because I take them for granted? Or maybe it’s because I expect you to know them all and thus consider it not necessary to “introduce” them? But well, it’s about time I at least express my love for this Mitte restaurant serving local and seasonal dishes. It’s my go-to place if I want to make sure I’ll have a nice, affordable and delicious meal in a pleasant and pretty atmosphere. It’s one of these places that rarely, if ever, disappoint.

Vegan in Berlin: Let it Be

I am so very happy about the growing vegan scene in Berlin – we already got many options to chose from, but can there ever be enough?
Yesterday I cycled down Weserstraße, that incredibly long stretch in Neukölln, where new cafés, shops and restaurants seem to open every week, to reach one of the recently opened contenders: Let it Be. The small eatery serves vegan crêpe and gluten-free galette with sweet or savory fillings, burgers and sweet treats to health-conscious people coming here from all over the city.

Berlin’s Best: Ice Cream Guide

We live in glorious ice cream times in Berlin, with new and creative parlors popping up all over the city while the troupers still excel in their craft. From Wilmersdorf to Neukölln and back, from vegan to Italian to sugar-crusted, it’s a paradise for everyone with a sweet and cold tooth. In order to supply you with the best frozen experience, we’ve compiled a list of Berlin’s best ice cream (from A to Z)! All strictly subjective, of course!

Breakfast in Berlin: Mary’s

I don’t even know if this is a big announcement or not, but I do know that only few things are able to make me as nervous as this new idea. Spending my days discovering, watching, testing and writing about all the foodie-endeavours happening in Berlin right now, lead me closer to this idea of trying out my own food-idea. The best place to try it is the upcoming Breakfast Market and so it will be: Mary’s will premiere this Sunday at Markthalle 9 and we will probably go down in a green smoothie chaos… but at least we’ll have fun!
