Berlin Food Digest #8

the vacation issue

Aug 4th, 2016

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the vacation issue of the Berlin Food Digest! The month of August is the quietest month of the Berlin restaurant scene so I’m getting the hell out of here for a little summer R&R. Good news is that you can follow my food travels on my brand new Instagram account Finest Food Stories, which is also a little teaser to the wickedly cool blog I will launch this autumn. So stay hungry and enjoy the crap out of the last bits of summer. And don’t forget, you can signup here to receive this newsletter first in your inbox every month. See you in September!


Dottir Thai Pop Up Starters


Banh Mi Stable
This brand new Vietnamese sandwich joint is opening on August 8th in Mitte and promises insanely delicious and authentic Da La Lat style Banh Mi Heo Quay with juicy pork and ice cold Vietnamese beer.

The Hidden
The crew behind Daniel’s Eatery are about to open up the doors to The Hidden, a space for supper clubs, cooking classes, pop ups and indoor gardening.

Glänzende Aussichten
This new place on the R.A.W. Gelände promises plenty of cold craft beer, sandwiches, smoked meats and a bight future if you choose to dwell on their lovely wooden terrace.

Thai pop-up at Dóttir
A group of NYC chefs are doing Thai food at Dóttir for two weeks and the food is unbelievably good. The whole thing sadly already closes on the 6th – we can only hope this crew finds a permanent home in Berlin.


La Lucha
The Mexican restaurant La Lucha from the Bourbon Dog crew is closing in on venues and hopefully we’ll see a proper restaurant this fall.

Pignut BBQ
Representatives from the glorious Alabama style BBQ shack from Moabit have been seen scouting locations in Prenzlauer Berg. And rumors say this second restaurant will venture beyond basic BBQ food.

As proof of what an awesome listener I am, I ventured to a couple of places readers said were missing on my initial top list of Berlin’s Best Fish Restaurants. Both Taka Fischhaus and the extraordinarily decadent Fischers Fritz have made it on to the updated list. Check it out and see how they ranked!
