Foodie in Berlin http://foodieinberlin.com Curious about food, culture and what people put in their mouth Sun, 07 Dec 2014 15:19:28 +0000 en-GB hourly 1 Goodbye Berlin http://foodieinberlin.com/goodbye-berlin/ http://foodieinberlin.com/goodbye-berlin/#respond Tue, 20 Aug 2013 15:38:02 +0000 http://foodieinberlin.com/?p=7853 Read ‘Goodbye Berlin’ on the Foodie in Berlin website.

All posts about Barcelona have been moved to: www.foodieinbarcelona.com I’ve moved to Barcelona. Most of you probably already know that. Here you will find archives on my adventures in Berlin spanning three years. Berlin was a wonderful home to me and this website was the best part. I met my three best friends through it. And...

Ruman in Amman, Jordan http://foodieinberlin.com/ruman-in-amman-jordan/ http://foodieinberlin.com/ruman-in-amman-jordan/#comments Fri, 09 Aug 2013 09:58:05 +0000 http://foodieinberlin.com/?p=6631 Read ‘Ruman in Amman, Jordan’ on the Foodie in Berlin website.

I missed the memo that it was Ramadan, (or I ignored it more likely). So for the past month we’ve been firmly planted at my father’s home in Ruman, Jordan (Ruman means pomegranate in Arabic, lovely, isn’t it?).  The kids and I have been living on our pomegranate hill, which is planted not with pomegranates...

Chicago Williams, BBQ, Mitte http://foodieinberlin.com/chicago-williams-bbq-mitte/ http://foodieinberlin.com/chicago-williams-bbq-mitte/#comments Thu, 01 Aug 2013 11:23:35 +0000 http://foodieinberlin.com/?p=6598 Read ‘Chicago Williams, BBQ, Mitte’ on the Foodie in Berlin website.

While I would argue that America’s soft power has taken some considerable hits over the last decade, its food culture is thriving abroad.  It crops up in the most unlikely places- like on Hannoversche Strasse.  A street that even a die-hard Mitte resident will struggle to locate.  There on the former site of BarCelona next to the...

New! Bite Club, Street Food Party on the Spree http://foodieinberlin.com/new-bite-club-street-food-party-on-the-spree/ http://foodieinberlin.com/new-bite-club-street-food-party-on-the-spree/#comments Wed, 24 Jul 2013 10:23:08 +0000 http://foodieinberlin.com/?p=6604 Read ‘New! Bite Club, Street Food Party on the Spree’ on the Foodie in Berlin website.

The upcoming Bite Club Berlin has prompted me to do something I’ve yet to do on Foodie in Berlin – write about something I haven’t been to yet.  But I have a feeling… “The way you know about a good melon.” It’s logical really, think what a success Street Food Thursdays at Markthalle Neun has...

Zsa Zsa & Loui, Sandwiches, Neukölln http://foodieinberlin.com/zsa-zsa-loui-sandwich-kreuzberg/ http://foodieinberlin.com/zsa-zsa-loui-sandwich-kreuzberg/#comments Sun, 14 Jul 2013 15:18:27 +0000 http://foodieinberlin.com/?p=6585 Read ‘Zsa Zsa & Loui, Sandwiches, Neukölln’ on the Foodie in Berlin website.

If you want to find Berlin’s young entrepreneurs, you need to turn your attention to Neukölln and Kreuzberg. Two areas where you will find them cutting their teeth. (Probably as a result of a combination of cheap rents and a melting pot of young people hungry to try anything new.) Take Zsa Zsa and Loui,...

Anna Durkes, Italian Ice Cream, Kreuzberg http://foodieinberlin.com/anna-durkes-italian-ice-cream-kreuzberg/ http://foodieinberlin.com/anna-durkes-italian-ice-cream-kreuzberg/#comments Wed, 10 Jul 2013 11:47:13 +0000 http://foodieinberlin.com/?p=6571 Read ‘Anna Durkes, Italian Ice Cream, Kreuzberg’ on the Foodie in Berlin website.

Anna Durkes in Kreuzberg makes gelato.  It’s smoother than your average Berlin kugel and creamier, its richness coats the mouth like butter. The shop isn’t your average eis laden. With an island of cream painted metal furniture looking like oversized stick insects in repose at its center.  On one side is a pale blue wall...

In London, I spent a good three hours flipping hungrily through the food books that have been published in my absence. While looking through one called “A delicious life – New Food Entrepreneurs” – I came across Paletas, Zeit für Brot, and ART Sucre.  Right there in black and white and in hard cover.  Berlin shops sharing...

The purpose of my trip to London is ostensibly to have my yearly dental check up. That I am able to breakfast, lunch and dinner with old friends is a bonus. And treating myself to Dinings, Yashin, La Fromagerie, Rose Bakery and ‘white hot‘ Restaurant Story is – who am I kidding? It’s the best....

Pinch me. I had a meal last night, a meal I would not have expected to find in Berlin for a while yet to come.  And I had it in Charlottenburg. I was invited to the evening by Gal Ben Moshe‘s PR agent, Regine.  I know Regine personally, her portfolio of clients is enviable –...

The storefront that precedes Lavanderia Vecchia is now home to Lava. A deli with mossy green walls and checkered tiles on the floor. A lone ham and 4 long salamis greet me when I come in. Doilies are pinned to the furniture at random intervals while barren wrought iron candle holders decorate the wall. The...

I’ve gotten into a good habit of late. After I drop Layla off at school, I come home and make lunch or however much of lunch can be made ahead of time. A recent favourite is Camargue rice with black beans loosely based on this Bon Appetit recipe. Another is a mung bean noodle salad...

Few sweet pastries have the ability to dispense with my good grasp of self-control – except for Canelés.  The outside made up of a maximum caramelized, crunchy, sticky surface.  And the inside, solid custard, flecked with black vanilla seeds, yielding.  It’s a creme caramel you can hold in your hand, improved by texture, beveled edges,...

Do you remember what you were doing when you were 19? I vaguely recall watching too much TV, missing days at a time of University and harrumphing when the world didn’t lay down, prostrate and purring, at my feet. I only bring it up because this weekend a teenager accompanied by a newly minted twenty...

Tim Raue’s newest venture is at the Bötzow Brewery.  Championing German food (yes – apparently it’s possible) in the original space of the former brewery. Two of us sit perched up high on leggy metal work.  Surrounded by Futuring, an exhibition by Eva & Adele (who were described to me as Berlin’s answer to Gilbert...
