Rewe, Supermarket, Mitte

My neighbor, Dee, told me about this supermarket back in September.  To stop my diatribe on Berlin supermarkets.

Which went something like this:

“What was up with them? Why didn’t they stock lamb?  Where was the fish counter?  Why were all of them, even the upmarket ones, so damned ugly (For your reference, I am holding Waitrose, UK & Wholefoods, US as examples of how beautiful supermarkets can be!)?”

“Have you been to the Rewe on Invalidenstrasse?” she asked, bewildered.

“Er, no…”

Pan fried fish with baby gem lettuce, spring onions, samphire and wurst

Pan fried dishes are a good thing to know how to make.  They’re fast, beautiful and all those knobs of butter do wonders for the flavour.

I made this for myself, last night after walking for too long in the windy blustery streets of Berlin. Read more of this post

Strawberry fields forever…

I was on a “discover your neighborhood” mission today with little L squirming and whimpering in her buggy (sorry bub but I can’t control the weather).  I found out that there is a Rewe about a 10 min walk from my flat on Chausseestraße, yippee!  Can’t face another visit to Lidl!  I found a bicycle store which means I can get a child seat attached to my bike this weekend and then as I was walking along quite innocently I saw a strawberry stall.  

Karls strawberry stall to be exact. Although, Karl wasn’t there - this smiley young woman was. I bought a kilo 1/2 a kilo of strawberries for  €2.10.  They are monsters, the size of little L’s fist.  Red all the way through.  I am sporting a big stain on my new shirt because we had to try them there and then!  

Not really sure what to make of all of that.  But stumbling on to a strawberry stall in the middle of a congested street has been the high point of my day so far.
