WeShare Made in Berlin: Tiergarten Kieztour

(Advertising)

A couple of weeks ago, WeShare asked me to explore the area around Potsdamer Straße and Tiergarten, and share my finds as part of the three-part #WeShareMadeinBerlin series. The 100% electric car-sharing service wants to inspire you to discover Berlin’s unique Kiez culture – silently and sustainably. Some of my very, very favorite spots in Berlin are actually located in the area. First of all, Kin Dee, a popular, Michelin-starred restaurant: Dalad Kambhu’s approach to cooking is always delicious, straight-forward, and reflective, she uses local produce to create dishes evoking the flavors of her home country, Thailand. You can watch the video of us chatting, cooking, and meeting inspiring local suppliers of Dalad – like her ceramist Lisa Kosak of Helka Ceramics, and her farmer Lena Buss of Good Food Syndicate – here. A couple of days later, when the snow had melted, I set out on my own Kieztour, got in a 100% electric WeShare VW ID.3 (what a smooth driving experience!), and went to four chosen spots, to get lunch, dessert, dinner, and some very important pantry items. Check my selection below:

Eat in Berlin: Spring Feels & Brunch Tips

Are you frolicking in the sun while reading this? Reveling in the great expectation that is a long, free weekend with tons of sunshine and warm weather? Ohh, me too! Nothing quite like Berlin awakening from six months of depressing grey and remodeling itself into the green oasis we all love and need. After ten days in Shanghai, where I ate excellent food from morning till night (guide still to come), I’m readjusting to the local circumstances by being extra careful where to exchange money for food. So this one’s mostly old faves (plus a new highlight all the way at the end of the post). Starting today, I’ll be on the lookout for new food spots, and will let you know about the success of my discoveries asap, hopefully. Until then, enjoy the weekend!

Eats in Berlin: Last one of 2018!

So, I’m closing this year early. There’ll be one more thing coming tomorrow (or next week), and then that’s it before the new year. Here are seven places I’ve eaten at in the past two weeks, from one of my fav Chinese places, to some possibly detoxing greens, really good breakfast and pastry, and not so great pastry (that everyone else seems to love, though…). I’ve also dared going into one of those places I thought were only for tourists and have been pleasantly surprised! Read on to find out more. Have some happy holidays, eat whatever and how much you like, have a great slide into the new year (translated a German saying here), and see you again fresh and hungry in 2019!

Seriously: The Best Places to Eat in Berlin Right Now

In celebration of the relaunch of the map of this very blog, I decided to write “one of those articles”, a boiled down list of current favorite places to eat in this very city. Because of course these are the questions I receive the most: What’s your favorite restaurant? What’s the best place for sweets? Where do I get the best brunch? What’s the best ice cream? And yes, I do have answers. Very personal, subjective ones, that is. So this is not a final list, nor one that claims to be exhaustive, or timeless. I’ve only added brick-and-mortar places, no pop-ups, no trucks, no supper clubs. And there’s no hierarchy. But seriously, if I had to tell you 10 of my favorites, these are it.

Chinese in Berlin: Da Jia Le

This place has been recommended to me over and over again, however, it took me a long time to try it and I blame that on its odd location – but when friends were inviting me to take a look at their new house around the corner, I used the opportunity and asked them to eat at this place serving Dongbei, Northeast Chinese, food. And yes, it’s worth traveling to this not very pretty part of Schöneberg.
