Anna Durkes – Sweet Little Eis

Berlin, believe it or not, can be oppressively hot and sticky in summer.  Luckily, Berliners can use the heat as an excuse to indulge their passion for Eis at one of the city’s myriad ice cream shops, including my current favourite Anna Durkes in the Graefekiez in Kreuzberg. Owners, Anna Luisa and her husband Giorgio […]

Shiso Burger – Asian Fusion Burgers

Berliners love burgers it seems and burger joints are two a penny but Shiso Burger in Mitte elevates itself above the norm by adding an Asian twist to the American classic. Since I have lived in Berlin, burger restaurants have been opening (and closing) at an astonishing rate so it’s important that new places find […]

WaWa Berlin Korean Restaurant

Opened in June 2014, WaWa Berlin is a charming little Korean restaurant on Grunewaldstrasse in Schöneberg. It has a clean and modern décor with some clever design touches – backlit green bottles on the bar, attractive bowl-like cups and pretty decorative trays for the tea. There are nods to Korea without it being kitschy and […]

Zola, is a small pizzeria in Kreuzberg, which opened in a Paul-Lincke-Ufer Hinterhof (courtyard) in January 2015, selling Neapolitan wood-fired pizza. The Zola philosophy, concept and method is neatly summed up in this paragraph from the Facebook event for the opening: We love good pizza but too rarely get some. That’s why we’ve decided to […]

Doyum Grillhaus Turkish Restaurant in Berlin

Doyum Grillhaus is an unassuming looking restaurant serving outstanding Turkish food on Admiralstraße, a few minutes walk from U-Bahnhof Kottbusser Tor in Berlin. Kreuzberg, and the area around Kottbusser Tor in particular, is at the heart of the traditional Turkish community in Berlin and is therefore awash with Turkish restaurants and Kebab shops.  Doyum Grillhaus […]

Berliner Berg – New Berlin Brewery Crowdfunding Campaign

The guys at Berliner Berg are hoping to tap into the unquenchable thirst for craft beer in Berlin.  The slogan (paraphrasing former GDR leader Walter Ulbricht) reads “No one has the intention to erect a brewery in Berlin” but that is exactly what they are hoping to do with the funds from their Startnext crowdfunding campaign.

Fräulein Frost – Ice Cream That Gives You Chills

In the summer Berliners go bonkers for ice cream and lots of these Eis crazy people head to Fräulein Frost for a scoop or two (and sometimes more) of the good stuff. Berlin’s schizophrenic weather means that no one is able to acclimatise to the summer heat – one minute it’s sub 20 degrees and […]

Döner Macht Schöner – 6 of the Best Berlin Kebaps

Over the years I have lived in Berlin I have criss-crossed the city trying out Berlin Kebab recommendations from friends, readers, newspapers and blogs in my search for the best Berlin Kebaps. Legend has it that the Döner Kebab (Doner Kebab) was invented in Berlin in the 1970s and I have seen the discovery credited […]
