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.
Tag: Markthalle IX
The best week of food is starting today – with the Stadt Land Food festival, we Berliners are showered with a plethora of possibilities to not only enjoy the best of local food, but also to educate ourselves in the questions of sustainability, learn more about food production and distribution, experience the many different producers and produce, and eat all the best food while we’re at it. All based on the important question what we as a society can do for an agriculture that is better for farmers, animals, plants and consumers. (Read my interview from 2014 with campaign leader Jochen Fritz to find out more.)
As with every great festival, the mere number of things happening can be overwhelming, which is why I collected a selection of workshops, presentations and events happening now until October 3rd, hope this helps!
There’re a lot of things happening at your favorite market hall in Kreuzberg! Not only did a retailer occupying loads of the hall move out, but there’s a new chef at the Kantine, a new cake vendor, a bigger space to attend to your caffeine addiction, and a beautiful new stall selling produce born and raised in Berlin. But one after the other…
A very, very delicious Sunday awaits us: United Street Food is coming up at Markthalle Neun! It’s a fundraising food market, presenting all the wonderful organizations working with food and immigrants, featuring the most delicious dishes from many different countries. And I must know because I was lucky enough to taste some of them already, so I can give you a preview right now!
