When two Berlin foodie professionals told me they’d found it, the greatest Asian supermarket in Berlin, it was hard to keep my expectations and my emotions in check. I told the Wednesday Chef about it and she too was tickled; what if it had a wide range of products like the ones at the Dong Xuan Market, just more centrally located and less enveloped in pervasive plastic smells? And what if is was more spacious and clean compared to the Go Asia market on Kantstrasse?
On the day I came to visit Nicole at her home, she decided to buy a house in Brandenburg together with her partner and close friends. We spent a long time in her kitchen, where she told me of this new acquisition that will mark a serious change of lifestyle, spending the weekends in an area without Spätkaufs or fancy restaurants, but a huge garden and horses.
