Hello, my name is Per.

This website is dedicated to the very best restaurants in Berlin and to the people who are serious about great food and extraordinary dining experiences in this city. I have been eating my way through Berlin for the last decade and I started Berlin Food Stories in 2012, resolute in my aim of becoming the most reliable and independent source of information about eating out in this city.

Today I share my thoughts on food as a freelance journalist writing for some of the renowned publications on the planet, as a weekly radio host for one of Berlin’s largest radio stations, as a tour guide for both visitors and locals and through my posts on social media.

  Berlin is a very special food destination, its culinary history is incredibly complex and whilst there a lot of great restaurants, there are even more terrible ones. Berlin Food Stories will lead you to all the best eats whilst providing a no bullshit, fun and 100% independent guide through which you can navigate my hometown’s culinary jungle and learn about the stories of the people behind these places. Think of it as an alternative to the TripAdvisors and Yelps of the world: a one-stop expert guide with detailed reviews based on passionate work and never on sponsored meals.

Berlin Food Stories doesn’t differentiate between Michelin stars and a hole-in-the-wall joint because an awesome meal always comes down to the same core things: great ingredients, skilled cooking and an extraordinary dining experience that puts a smile on your face and makes you want to tell people about it. That’s exactly what I do.

Follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat for a glimpse into my daily eats and signup here to the Berlin Food Digest newsletter for the hottest openings, food scene news, events and restaurant jobs in town.

Berlin Food Stories is a part of Finest Food Stories, my global food magazine that goes beyond Berlin to tell the stories of the greatest food experiences around the world. Also check our sister site Stockholm Food Stories.
