Goulash in Kreuzberg: G wie Goulasch

It’s August, the weather finally resembles something like summer, and the city is slowly falling asleep. We might not have the real Italian or French vacances-shut-down, but it’s certainly a downtime, with shops and restaurants going on holiday. And locals leaving the city, while loads of tourists flock to the major sight seeing spots – so most Kiezes do feel quite sleepy. And while I’m not going to be totally absent, I too will take August to slow it down, recharge batteries, and explore the city from another perspective (outside of its borders). So here’s a recommendation I wanted to give you all along: a very pleasant restaurant on the quiet Chamissoplatz square in Kreuzberg called G wie Goulasch, made for summer night dinners.

Dining in Berlin: Lode & Stijn

I finally went to Lode & Stijn, halleluja! I was so excited to go all the time and still it took me too many weeks, and I don’t even have a reason for that. And then I wanted to write about it instantly but went to Japan for two weeks and now I’m back and looking at the pictures and wanna go again right now. So without further explanations, let’s get to the food…

French in Berlin: Les Valseuses

Entering Les Valseuses in Prenzlauer Berg is like entering the house of old friends: I am greeted with enthusiasm by the owners Olivier and Julien, and I am instantly asking myself why I haven’t been here for a year.
I’ve been a regular guest at their first restaurant, Themroc on Torstraße, back when they opened in 2009; and when they left it to start their own Les Valseuses in 2012, I was excited and followed them, documenting the action in their kitchen. However, I haven’t been a lot in the past months, and I really don’t know why…* Because Les Valseuses is a lovely place, with great food, very good wine, and, even more important and surprisingly still not a given in Berlin, two incredibly warm hosts that make every visit feel special.
