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!

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!
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.
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.
