I’ve spent some time searching for a list of places for you guys to spend this New Year’s in Berlin. Variety is key, so Mary and I made sure to include something glamorous and lavish, relaxed and romantic, casual and delicious, and as much as we could in between.
Did you know that this week will be the best week for this city’s foodies and food-activists? It’s Stadt Land Food everyone! A gigantic festival celebrating great food and good agriculture. Organized by Martkhalle IX, this festival will take over not only their own holy halls, but the surrounding streets and squares, where not only the biggest Street Food Thursday as of yet will happen, but also markets with wonderful products. And there’ll be an award for the best street food, and there’ll be workshops where real food crafts will be demonstrated and so much more, you better take a look at their website if you don’t want to miss out. A very special event happening during this week is Kavita Meelu’s newest adventure, a dinner series called Hidden Chefs! (Read closely, we’re giving away 1×2 dinner seats for one of them!)
Italian cooking is always kind of falling off the table when I think about interesting things to try and explore in Berlin. It somewhat is such a staple, that I tend to not think too much about it… But then, it’s such delicious food with so much potential…! Anyhow, I just recently heard about a fairly new menu-restaurant at Lausitzer Platz in Kreuzberg and so I cycled down from Mitte one surprisingly beautiful evening last week to taste-test Nudo with a friend.
