kreuz + kümmel is an Indian-Italian-world food mash-up that feels somehow… authentic? In a world that feels like it’s becoming more dishonest, I’ve always thought that cooks are the last incorruptibles.

This … Read more Melt Your Worries And Your Hunger Pains At Paradiso
Understated might be a good word to describe Refinery Coffee. Nestled just off the Spree on Albrechtstrasse, it’s easy to miss at first glance. Its interior is a classic example of minimalism – bare light bulbs descend from the ceiling illuminating a couple of wooden booths, a simple counter bedecked with numerous coffee-making contraptions, shelves … Read more Refinery Coffee Brings Its Artisan Beans to Kreuzberg
Bahadur is a new North Indian restaurant in Wilmersdorf(?) that promises authentic Indian food. We just had to investigate that claim.
