Berlin Food Digest #19

the birthday issue

Jul 4th, 2017

Dear Reader,

This week marks not one but TWO majorly exciting milestones in the Berlin Food Stories calendar. Not only is my dear passion project turning a whopping 5 years old, I’ll also be releasing my Berlin’s Top 50 Eateries 2017 list – the ULTIMATE bucket list of restaurants you need to be eating in this year. If you’re more the hottest-new-stuff kinda person, then you should check out my brand new guide for Eater, featuring The 12 Hottest New Restaurants in Berlin right now, otherwise stay tuned for THE food list of the year on the blog this week.

ps. 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!


Ice cream brunnenstrasse


The friendly, neighbourhood joint on Immanuelkirchstr has renovated its kitchens and is back in business with some fancy new kit and renewed culinary creativity.

Lok 6
Bringing more joy to Schöneberg, Lok6 is the new super slick restaurant, event and pop-up space located between Gleisdreieck and Viktoriapark.

Burger Art
Mixing beef patties with the masters, this new burger joint in Steglitz offers Pollock, Warhol, Da Vinchi, Van Gough and many more famous artists in inspired beef burger forms. Ok then.

Die Eisfabrik
All credit to the ice-cream gods for rewarding our insatiable icy appetites with this brand new (and delicious) creamy pit stop on Brunnenstr.

If there’s one thing your summer needs more of it’s pisco sours and ceviche. Luckily there’s a new Peruvian ‘Nikkei’ restaurant on Kastanienalle in the old Bar 103 venue to quench your pisco thirst…

The crew behind Neukölln’s awesome Maison Han just opened a new French/Vietnamese café serving Vietnamese coffee and homemade patisserie. Lucky us.


Ka De We
Big news for one of Europe’s finest department store food courts – Industry StandardMogg and Pignut are all rumoured to be opening stalls in its humongous food hall as the entire area underges a huge makeover.

Bikini Berlin
There’s something in the food-court air – come November there’ll also be a new food market inside the Bikini Berlin complex giving us more reasons to head West…
