_MG_6870

New hidden gem Peggy Bee is committed to dynamic flavor, inventive recipes, and the kind of welcoming atmosphere one rarely feels in Berlin. About four weeks ago, artisan gelateria Peggy Bee opened its doors along Traveplatz, just northeast of bustling Boxi.

Positioned just around the corner from Schlesi, you can imagine that on a sunny day in non-Covid times, Zàgara would be heaving. But, despite the plague and the non-compliant weather, … Read more Zàgara – Pure. Simple. Delicious Ice Cream

Süsse Sünde – Ice Cream More Saintly Than Sinful

_MG_6974

From Köpenick to four Eisläden around the city, Süsse Sünde is a Berlin ice cream success story. We arrive at Rosenthaler Platz on a conspicuously grey, non-ice-cream eating day. Still, the route to Süsse Sünde was marked out for us in a snaking (socially distanced) line of kids and parents, leading us directly towards the … Read more Süsse Sünde – Ice Cream More Saintly Than Sinful

Tiffin Berlin Meal 2

It’s the birth of Berlin-Indian food. It’s called Tiffin. Note: I’m pretty late to the table about this one. Already featured by every other half-baked journal and ‘grammer in the city.

It’s … Read more Tiffin: Real, Authentic Indian Food in Berlin. Finally!

Da Michele: 150 Years of Pizza Tradition, Now in Berlin

da-michele-8

Da Michele, the biggest name in Neapolitan pizzas, has opened a restaurant in Berlin. My stance on pizzas is polarising. A huge pizza fan, I’m equally at home munching on a Penny frozen pizza than delicately devouring one from a high-end restaurant. I’ve paid top-dollar for disappointment as many times as I’ve given loose change … Read more Da Michele: 150 Years of Pizza Tradition, Now in Berlin

Akkawy: A Hummus-Tahini Overload in Friedrichshain

Akkawy Berlin Hummus Featured

Akkawy is quickly becoming Friedrichshain’s favourite hummus place. And it’s not only because of the owner’s emerald eyes. Working mainly with Israelis – as I do in my other life – has its upsides. One is that you’re very quickly introduced to all the best hummus restaurants in the city. Early this year, I was … Read more Akkawy: A Hummus-Tahini Overload in Friedrichshain
