I saw a gang of polar bears roaming Tempelhofer Feld the other day and I’ve been ice skating to work with penguins most mornings so #sorrynotsorry – I’m outta here folks. You’ll find me sippin’ pina coladas poolside in Thailand for the next weeks. In my absence the mysterious Kate will be keeping an eye on the Berlin food scene for me, and you can catch my Thai adventures on the BFS and Finest Food Stories Instagram accounts. SEE YOU WHEN THE SUN’S BACK peeps. Love, peace and Mai Tais to you all.
(Don’t forget, you can signup here to receive the Berlin Food Digest when it hits inboxes first every month. Those signed up receive a monthly Insiders Tip to where they should be eating out AND I include extra competitions for them. Join the gang!)
The ever extending Weinbergsweg restaurant strip now has a Japanese hideaway in the form of Nihimbashi’s very cute sushi and kushiyaki skewer hangout. A first visit with flamed salmon Nigiri set high hopes for above average sushi.
Been craving an authentic Vietnamese in Neukölln? Fear not – The Maison Han cafe on the corner of Pannierstraße and Pflügerstraße means your daily Banh Mi, Banh Cuon and Ca Phe fix will be that bit easier to manage.
Good Morning Charlottenburg! This new breakfast and brunch restaurant on Uhlandstraße comes by way of Tel Aviv and serves a huge menu including pancakes, eggs, Isreali treats, German breakfasts and more all around the clock!
Duc Ngo is the legend behind the Kuchi, Madame Ngo and 893 Ryōtei restaurant gang and next on his list is the restaurant space inside the soon-to-open Hotel Provocateur. Expect more of Ngo’s love affair with Indochine-French cuisine in some super sassy surroundings.
Richwater & Mitchell
‘New London cuisine’ in Moabit will be a very real thing when Richwater & Mitchell opens later this month. Perhaps these Londoners got lost trying to find Tegel after a heavy New Year’s, but head chef Anton Michel’s previous stints at Vau and Rutz suggests these guys might just know what they’re doing.
In my crystal ball for this new joint on Senefelderstraße I predict fancy French bar food with heaps of joie de vivre.
The group behind Grill Royal, Pauly Saal and dóttir collaborated with NY and Bangkok-based chef Dalad Kambuh in the summer to produce a delicious Thai pop-up that I haven’t stopped dreaming about since. PRAISE THE LORD: this sumptuous feast found a permanent home. Stay tuned for more details.
