My food experience of the last weeks feels a bit scattered, to be honest. For one, there’re so many new places I haven’t been to yet and can’t seem to make it. Either because they’re inconveniently located, or they’re too new to trust. Most times I dunno whether they’re really worth the investment of getting out of my house in the low-light season where all I wanna do is go to bed around 4pm. So instead I’m listening to podcasts while trying to finish that annoying diamond painting showing a tentacle-haired woman holding a squid (not joking, message me if you wanna see) until it’s a reasonable time for bed (9pm). No worries though, I do get out of the house to get some pizza, some Korean food, some Italian groceries, classic Japanese and to join the feast of feasts as a preview for what is going to be the next season of rightfully praised Das Brunch. And in case you’d rather stay in right now – how about you check your closet for coats and shoes to donate at my annual clothing donation event called Warm Up? It’s happening next Sunday at Markthalle Neun and you should all come. (If you have nothing to donate, still come by and buy a lottery ticket).

A weekend of heavy and delicious over-eating is coming up, let me tell you that – because before you’re heading for burger heaven at Burgers & Hip Hop’s Smoked Meat Special, you’ll have to join the feast that is the seasonal morning food celebration Das Brunch. It’s the tenth edition, and maybe even the last? This time, it’s happening in a former freight depot turned center for arts and culture, ZK/U, in Moabit, it will definitely be a feast for the eyes and your palate, with brunch dishes that fuse Australian, German, and Middle-Eastern flavours – read on for a droolworthy menu-preview!
My, it’s been too long already. Almost four months since we had the chance to feast on the excellent brunch dishes of sisters Sophie and Xenia von Oswald at their crowd-pleasing Das Brunch event. For the spring edition – happening on April 1st – they moved north to Wedding’s Silent Green, a former crematorium, now landmark turned arts center and café. I’m delighted to present you the menu, that has everything we waited for so many winter months: Asparagus! Fresh spring greens! Rhubarb! All served with a heavy load of Middle Eastern delicacies like the tart Sumac spice, green chili paste better known as Zhough, cardamom, chickpeas, star anise. And a super special extra appearance of the much beloved Fine Bagels’ Challah French Toast.
2016 has been a very long year, and oftentimes not a pretty one. And it still has four days left, so I won’t bid farewell too soon (to not give it any ideas!), but it’s about time for my annual report of what’s been most popular on this very blog. Because for the very limited world of this humble blog, it’s been a good year. Not only did we celebrate ten years of it: first with a lavish birthday dinner, and then with a grande breakfast market, but there was also the second edition of The Map, a very successful third clothing donation rally, loads of fun times at Burgers & Hip Hop, and a dessert-only extravaganza. I’ve enjoyed it a lot to be able to work on this outlet describing Berlin’s greatness, and am more than proud that enough people are interested reading my musings.
How does this sound for your Saturday breakfast: poached egg, bacon, haricot beans with leek, kale and herbs, haloumi-parsnip fritters, Persian saffron shakshuka with black beans, marinated chickpeas, saffron hollandaise, charmoula marinated beets? Because, yes! It’s that time of the year again! Das Brunch is back with their lavish morning food feast, this time in Neukölln, with a better menu than ever, plus all of it is benefiting the host, Sharehaus Refugio! And an extra special super goodie courtesy of yours truly.
