Berlin Bites: La Focacceria in Prenzlauer Berg

The heavenly scent of focaccia wafts onto the sidewalk, warming and comforting as only fresh bread can smell. You are compelled to duck under the red striped awning and into this tiny hole in the wall for a bite, or

Berlin Diary: A Tale of Two Imbiss(es)

It was Valentine’s Day. I felt the need to show myself some love and treat myself to two lunches. Ok that was an excuse. The real reason was because I would be at Kanstrasse, unofficially known as a Little Asia

Berlin Bites: Candied Apple from the Turkish Market

I *heart* candied apples. Picked this one from the Turkish Market in Kruezberg. It’s one of my favourite fresh markets here. Lots of good, cheap fruits and vegetables, cheese and even fresh pasta. Gotta love it! Location: Maybachufer, Kreuzberg Open:

Breakfast Club: Orange Coffee

I like waking up early on the weekends because it always feels like I have the whole day ahead of me, and also because it’s a real nice feeling to know you can turn over and snooze for a couple

Berlin Diary: Fancy-pants Chocolates

Everything is fancy on Friedrichstrasse, the high-end shopping street that runs through Berlin’s Mitte district. But while I can’t afford anything from Versace’s Spring collection, I can at least treat myself to something sweet at the chocolatiers Fassbender & Rausch.

Berlin Bites: Alexanderplatz

Join the adventures of the travelling food as it takes it the sights of Berlin. First stop:  the Weldzeituhr (World Time clock) in Alexander Platz. It’s super retro, a remainder from East Berlin’s GDR times – kinda reminds me of

Berlin Diary: Doner Kebap in Kreuzberg

Sunny spring days make me want to take a big picnic to the nearest park. The recent earthquake in New Zealand and now Japan (and the sad loss and disruption of so many lives) made me think about my own;

Berlin Diary: Lunch Quickies I
