Coffee at Westberlin

Cafés in Berlin: westberlin

This coffee shop is located in the weirdest of places in central Berlin, right in the eye of the tourist-hurricane, but then otherwise a rather deserted area around Checkpoint Charlie, in between Mitte and Kreuzberg. There’s literally nothing else of food interest, which is maybe why this spot is crowded every time one passes by.

Berlin’s Best Burger: Voting #1

Oh my, what a night. Burgers & Hip Hop united two things so alike in a food and music bash at Prince Charles. People came, had burgers, and voted.  So many people in fact, that the line was actually ridiculous and we hope we can make some changes so no one, or at least not too many have to wait for their meal for hours in the freezing cold.

Thank you all for joining the first public vote to find Berlin’s Best Burger, the results are in. And they’re surprising – who would’ve thought first and second place would go to CHICKEN burgers? Certainly not me, but it was very well earned – see the whole list here!

Drink in Berlin: Schwarze Traube

I like secrets; but keeping them has never been a strong suit of mine. I like local hangs and hidden gems and I ooze with excitement whenever I discover something new. In my quest to explore my Kreuzberg neighbourhood, I stumbled upon an amazing bar: Schwarze Traube. Which turns out to be run by the best bartender of Germany, Atalay Aktas.

Looking for: Berlin’s Best Burger

After finding Berlin’s Best Bread past December, ideas were spinning in our heads how to continue Berlin’s Best. Naturally, we’re taking up a bigger than life challenge and will attempt to find Berlin’s Best Burger this year. And by saying “we”, I actually mean you. Instead of assembling a high-class foodie jury to judge on the softness of buns or crispness of patties, I hand over the decision to a public vote. Which means you can be a judge in this.
