Tupac: A Journey Into South American Unknown

Tupac Berlin Food 6

Tupac offers “South American cuisine with a Peruvian twist”. My knowledge of South American cuisine consists of Argentine steaks with chimichurri, ceviche, pisco sour and caipirinha. Beyond that, I’ve no idea what people eat over there. So, when I heard that Kreuzberg restaurant Tupac was offering a modern take on Latino food as a whole, … Read more Tupac: A Journey Into South American Unknown

Maison Umami: Is Love on the Horizon?

Maison-Umami-Prawn

If you dream of going to Asia, but your crappy Berlin wage means you’ll never get the chance, Maison Umami is a great place to play pretend. Especially on date night. It’s date night with a devilishly handsome man who had aggressively molested me at Motzstrassenfest, much to my delight. We head to Maison Umami … Read more Maison Umami: Is Love on the Horizon?

The Definitive Guide to Jazz in Berlin

Yorkschlossen

There’s no shortage of jazz in Berlin. Here’s our guide to the city’s many jazz clubs. For those who are willing to pocket the pills and put down the gear – at least momentarily – it’s obvious that Berlin is more than just techno, quasi art projects, and war memorials – there’s jazz, too. Following … Read more The Definitive Guide to Jazz in Berlin

Lexodus Brings Storytelling Back to Hip-Hop

IMG_0189

I first saw Lexodus at Marie Antonette. Back then the entire act consisted of Alex Linton spitting bars and pouring whiskey into the mouths of any eager revellers brave enough to come close to the stage. Today, the concept of Lexodus has changed entirely. No longer a solo project, it’s now full band with skilled … Read more Lexodus Brings Storytelling Back to Hip-Hop

The Wildeküche Ravers Are the Coolest Vegans in Town

IMG_4582

Wildeküche Isn’t Your Typical Vegetarian and Vegan Joint. It’s easy to roll your eyes at a sharp-tongued Vegan. They’re all razor-elbowed and simmering with anger, ready to strike their hand across your fork as you dive in for another round of Camembert. “Yeah, I get it. The world’s gonna end if we don’t take care … Read more The Wildeküche Ravers Are the Coolest Vegans in Town

Melt Your Worries And Your Hunger Pains At Paradiso

Taco13

I didn’t expect Paradiso at all. When invitations were extended I thought we’d be visiting just another restaurant, the kind with space for 100 and scores of stressed-out waiters. Instead, we’re brought to the tiny shop front of a building on Oppelner Strasse, a barebones room that at first glance is easy to miss. This … Read more Melt Your Worries And Your Hunger Pains At Paradiso

Nakhane’s “You Will Not Die” Lends Fashion To Trauma

Nakhane 26 crop

As a multidisciplinary artist, it’s hard to peg Nakhane to one artform. We met Nakhane for the first time last year when he and director John Trengrove brought their film The Wound, which Nakhane starred in and which was short-listed for an Oscar nomination, to Berlinale. Since then Nakhane has taken a break from acting … Read more Nakhane’s “You Will Not Die” Lends Fashion To Trauma

Berlin’s New Chinatown is Otherworldly

IMG_0705

Throughout March, Berlin has its own Chinatown and it’s a kitsch, neon success. After seeing their nebulous, hipsterific teaser campaign on social media, I wasn’t sure how ‘Berlin’s new Chinatown’ was going to work. But, after visiting the opening night at their Spreewaldplatz location, I’m sold on their kitsch Chinatown aesthetic, innovative use of space, … Read more Berlin’s New Chinatown is Otherworldly

Piri’s Make Messy But Irresistible Chicken Burgers

Berlin Loves You Piri’s Chook Norris

Piri’s chicken burgers are finger-fucking good. And hot! After nearly four years, we know we’re behind the game covering the now-legendary Piri’s, but bear with us. Let’s not get complacent here – it’s high time we celebrated what these guys bring to Kreuzberg. When I first moved here, you couldn’t get a decent chicken burger … Read more Piri’s Make Messy But Irresistible Chicken Burgers
