The Pit
The famous Texan-style BBQ pop up has finally found a permanent home for their insane Wagyu brisket at their brand new restaurant in Kreuzberg.

Located in an unassuming corner of Mitte, right up the street from Odessa Bar, this cosy little Israely eatery is serving very honest and delicious food that goes way beyond hummus and after service the whole thing turns into a bar with a DJ.

Berlin’s most famous ice cream trucks has, after years of immensely successful street-food market touring, started a proper ice cream parlour in Schöneberg.

The Trucks
New concept by Markthalle Neun where three food trucks with changing vendors – including Big Stuff BBQ and Kumpel & Keule – pull up on Varian-Fry Str. near Potsdamer Platz every Mon-Fri from 11.30-3pm.


The sublime Nordic eatery and Berlin’s best fish restaurant, is moving to Hong Kong this summer. But no worries – only for two weeks.

From August 3rd to September 9th the two Michelin star restaurant will turn into casual street food eatery Freistoff. Chef Daniel Achilles is promising Asian and Latin American inspired food and plenty of casual summer vibes.

My beloved Pastrami deli in Mitte is opening up a second location in West Berlin on Kanstraße with a focus on quick and delicious lunches.

CODA Dessert Bar
After 6 years as the Head Pastry Chef at German 3-star institution La Vie, René Frank is coming to Berlin to open a bar with dessert tasting menus in Neukölln together with Julia Leitner, who just came back from working as a pastry chef at The Clove Club in London.
