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

H23

You’re either really excited by this, or you don’t know what you’re missing. It all started when I saw a Facebook photo of a bottle of Thatcher’s Katy cider and the caption: “Well well well, what have we got here… A huge selection of British ciders and beers”. My life over the past few years … Read more Finally! British Products Find a Home in Berlin

BBB Berlin is Ostkreuz’s Slick Burger Operation

BBB-Berlin-Outside2-Kfir-Harbi

BBB Berlin stylishly straddles being both a down-to-earth burger joint and full-service restaurant. I must admit: since I wrote a relatively comprehensive guide to Berlin burgers back in 2014, I’ve eaten burgers very rarely. Too much of a good thing. Sometimes just the thought of a burger is enough. Not to mention the flashbacks. That … Read more BBB Berlin is Ostkreuz’s Slick Burger Operation

BBB Berlin is More than a Mere Burger Joint

BBE23

Burger-hungry at Ostkreuz? Fuck McD’s, get a BBB. Berlin’s burger scene is all grown up. Gone are the frozen patties, and those new-wave hipster half-burger joints that appeared in their wake have all turned vegan and moved to the country. Now, thick, proper, meaty, greasy, but somehow noble burgers have taken their rightful place on … Read more BBB Berlin is More than a Mere Burger Joint

Santa Cantina’s New Mexican-Fusion Menu

Santa Cantina Berlin Tacos

Friedrichshain’s Santa Cantina has launched a menu full of Mexican-fusion instant classics. Just a few years ago, anything resembling real Mexican food was nowhere to be found in Berlin. Now Mexican cuisine has fused its way into almost every menu across the city. Santa Cantina on Simon Dach Strasse has been a long-term stalwart for … Read more Santa Cantina’s New Mexican-Fusion Menu

Fhain’s Soma Bar Has Your Berlin Indie Soundtrack Sorted

IMG_0049

Soma’s a new indie rock bar just off Simon Dach Strasse. Don’t tell the tourists. Rock bars in Britain are very different to those in Berlin. There, they’re stylish-looking people listening (and dancing) to indie rock classics, getting drunk and singing Oasis. Here, they’re fierce-looking people in black band t-shirts listening to thrash metal or … Read more Fhain’s Soma Bar Has Your Berlin Indie Soundtrack Sorted

Tentacion Mezcalothek is a Journey into Deep Oaxaca

Tentacion BERLIN LOVES YOU 2

Tentacion Mezcalothek, Oaxaca’s Embassy in Berlin, has a magical mysticism about it. Especially after a few mezcals. Tentacion Mezcalothek sits a side-street or two away from Boxhagener Platz. The usual Friedrichshain foot-fall doesn’t make it to Tentacion’s door, only people in the know – who’re drawn to Berlin’s most authentic mezcaleria. Tentacion is run by … Read more Tentacion Mezcalothek is a Journey into Deep Oaxaca
