The main course: lamb shoulder at Nansen

Food in Berlin: Nansen

I never in my life thought I would be writing about a restaurant, but sometimes you just discover the fun in something while doing it. I have also never really been a food person to be honest and when my friends ask to “have dinner” with me I always roll my eyes thinking that this is the kind of shit rich people in New York do. You know, like the women from Sex and the City who hardly work but always make it to the openings of the hottest new restaurants in town.

But then…

Crêpes in Berlin: Chez Bubar

I spent my summer vacation on the West coast of France this year, enjoying the golden sandy beaches, the ice-cold water and the delicious Crêpes that are served in the Bretagne. Coming back to Berlin, I was excited to find a new Breton Crêpes maker in Markthalle: Chez Bubar!

Fine Dining in Berlin: Glass

When It comes to dining I prefer to be completely submissive; just bring me what you recommend, tell me in which order to dig in, what wine to drink alongside, whether your desserts are even worth it. I’ll just sit there and start smiling. It also ensures that chefs can serve what they want, what they deem is in season, what they found on the market that morning, what they believe are excellent contrasting or accompanying flavors; it’s like watching a great television series in exact order.

Bread in Berlin

A great Berlin day starts with an announcement of Malin Elmlid, that she’s baking and bread is available for trading. If you’re quick enough, you will enjoy one of her special sourdough breads in the evening. Best to be had with fresh butter from Brodowin. Follow her facebook page to get alerted when the oven is switched on again!
