Dreams do come true… I’ve always wanted to throw a street food party that was 100% meat-free, and the time has finally come: this Sunday will see the very first vegan and vegetarian Bite Club, with all my favorite street food vendors celebrating plants. Instead of clean eating, this feast will focus on indulgence – from the best burgers, to spicy salads, Sichuan noodles, hearty hummus, most delicious ice cream, and much, much more. I invited a couple street food stars who usually wouldn’t do vegetarian food, and challenged them to bring their deliciousness to the meat-free table. And all of this will go down at the beautiful venue of Funkhaus right by the Spree. Come celebrate the final summer weekend with us!

Beyond doubt, there’s been somewhat of a street food craze happening in our lovely small town of Berlin. It feels like everyone and there mom now does a street food stall, every mall has a street food court and every day of the week can be spend on a street food market. However, the success of a street food event is decidedly depending on the food quality of its vendors, and since Berlin is still new in the food business, there are only so many good chefs making delicious and street appropriate food, consequently, not every event applying the much coveted street food label to itself has managed to create a worth while foodie experience. Next to my forever favorite event Street Food Thursday, there’s one serious contender for the crown: Bite Club. The outdoor market is back on its original turf, and has assembled amazing talent, making the club better than ever! Enjoy my favs (and I haven’t even tried them all) and mark your calendars with June 5th for the next Bite Club!
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin is never only about design based in Berlin – besides myriads of newcomers from all over Germany, it regularly attracts designers from other European countries with one of the most steady participants being Romania.
The Romanian fashion scene might be small, but it has its highlights and certainly a powerful support from local audience and government. For over four seasons a selection of Romanian designers have been showing their latest work at Berlin fashion week and the designers used the time to enjoy all the amenities of our city. Like Adelina Ivan, who I met at Bite Club Mitte this past Saturday, where she not only presented her new designs but also happily indulged in the vegan treats Mitte’s favorite street food market had to offer.
We heart the Street Food Thursdays at Markthalle IX, we really do, but its success has resulted in long lines and sometimes an actual shortage of food, yikes! Suffice to say Berlin was in the market for a second Brooklyn-style street food fair, and in Bite Club it has found a worthy (if immediately also immensely popular) one.
