Berlin’s Best Burger: Voting #3

A day and night filled with burgers and Hip Hop tunes lies behind us. And honestly, I can’t wait for the next round already, because I had a blast. With all of the vendors being new to me (except last round’s winner District Một), I was excited to see what they came up with. And innovative they were, we had Kimchi burgers, Mexican burgers with corn buns, burgers made from  Yak meat… and last but not least, the first appearance of a Ramen burger. But who ruled the competition? Who grilled the juiciest patty, prepped the best toppings and baked the tastiest bun?
We’ve counted over 200 votes – and you actually won’t believe the results…

Revisited: Thai Park

Still one of my favourite places in Berlin for ever and ever, I was so very happy we re-started Thai Park season this past weekend. In case you’re asking yourself what that is, despite our restless promotion of this magical place in a park in Wilmersdorf, let me tell you: it’s the best of all. It’s an outdoor-market for Thai delicacies, fried ones as well as super fresh ones, and it’s happening every day (so weather allows) and it’s just plain gorgeous.

Vietnamese in Berlin: Saigon Green

Just as I thought I did my fair share of Kantstraßen-exploring and covered all things worthwhile, I discover something so exciting, I couldn’t stop talking about it for days. I think I found the best Vietnamese food in Berlin, I repeated to my friends over and over again. But it’s true, I had the best Vietnamese lunch in Berlin ever.
And yes, I’ve been to Dong Xuan Center and ate at numerous restaurants there. But none of them was as fresh and flavorful as the Súp Rau I had at Saigon Green.

Chinese in Berlin: Hot Spot

When I had a Sichuan dish for the first time, I was entirely confused – it was way too spicy for my palate and evoked an unsettling sour taste in my mouth and yet it was so delicious, I just couldn’t stop eating it. Months later, I learned about Sichuan pepper, which is actually not a pepper, but much closer related to the citrus group, hence the lemonlike or acidic taste and started to understand the wonders of Chinese cooking. One of my favorite Sichuan dishes is Mapo Tofu (although it is still rather painful to eat, but still so enjoyable, you know… a dilemma!), which is why I was beyond excited to see that Hot Spot, a Chinese restaurant in Wilmersdorf that I’ve heard so many people raving about, has a vegetarian version on the menu. And so much more…
