La Lucha

By far the most progressive Mexican restaurant in Berlin, La Lucha is one of the most talked about places in town – with not only excellent food but what we say is Berlin’s BEST service! We talked to owner Max Paarlberg about how it came to be…

Chutnify

Serving up by far the BEST INDIAN FOOD in Berlin, Chutnify is leagues ahead of any competition thanks to their approach to food quality, interior design and charming service! Having succeeded in Berlin’s ever-crowded streetfood scene whilst also setting up not one, but two restaurants in Berlin (and now another in Lisbon, Portugal!) which have subsequently got us Berliners absolutely hooked on the South Indian Dosa, we simply had to interview entrepreneurial & quite inspirational owner Aparna Aurora to find out a little more… Read more

An einem Sonntag im August

Considered almost an institution in Prenzlauer Berg, An Einem Sonntag im August is a casual hangout operating as a cafe and bar… however, in addition to their laid back vibes its their INCREDIBLE veggies burgers that get us really excited every time we’re by Eberswalder Strasse! We popped a few questions to owner Claudia-Maria Humeniuk to find out how the place came to be..

Amore

Being huge fans of Italy we naturally fell right in love with the Amore store and friendly owner Kerstin Finger, who carefully sources Italian products with exceptional branding & packaging design. Focusing mostly on food produce in the first room, her second room features eccentric umbrellas, quirky beach towels and wonderful tableware. What we adore about the Amore Store is how each of the food products from retro boxed salt & colourful tinned tomatoes to eye-catching pastas & Panettone boxes look soooooo pretty in their packaging, that they’re worth buying if only just to decorate your kitchen with if not to actually enjoy eating! Of course, we had a few questions to learn more! Read more

Bekarei

Prenzlauer Berg’s Bekarei is so much more than a neighborhood bakery, it’s one of the finest in the city! With a heavy Portuguese influence helping them differentiate themselves from elsewhere, and brioche buns in demand from the best burger joints in the city, we wanted to find out more about how husband & wife owners George & Paula Gouveia set it up… Read more

SHIO

Located just off Sonnenallee & Weserstrasse, SHIO may seem like another Neukölln fashion shop from the outside… but investigate & venture inside and you’ll discover exactly why this space is so unique. Most of the incredible clothes hung here have actually been creatively upcycled from unwanted garments into stylish and modern designs – which you would likely never guess if you didn’t know!  Run by very talented Australian seamstress Kate Pinkstone alongside three other designers (who showcase their excellent jewellery & objects, streetwear and Japanese stationary there too), this place is really rather special, and being big fans we wanted to discover a little more …

Bichou

As soon as we walked into newly opened, French daytime-bistro Bichou we knew it was love at first sight! Once warmly greeted by passionate friendly owner-couple Marion Coulondre & Thomas Giese, your eyes can’t help but gaze around at the sheer simplistic beauty of the small foodie-haven they’ve created, where they offer a brilliantly-concise menu, with just one hot dish changing weekly – a sign of quality, freshness and making it truly perfect. As for the food, you can always find one of the best quiches of your life, incredible Tarte Tatin, excellent homemade jams and freshly baked breakfast Brioche buns amongst other delights. We sent a few questions to the experienced duo to find out more about the way they work…

Victoria met Albert

As soon as we walked into Victoria met Albert’s adorable shop in Friedrichshain, we instantly fell in love with it. Bursting with a wide range of carefully chosen items we hadn’t seen elsewhere from home accessories to selected fashion to decorations amongst other delights, it was clear this would be a shop we’d be returning to again and again… and that became even easier on discovering their second store in Prenzlauer Berg!

We wanted to learn a bit more about charming husband & wife owners Will Tomlinson & Ilka Heineke to find out how it all came to be. Read more

Standard Serious Pizza

We’ve conducted proper pizza research-trips over in Naples and honestly, we know Standard Serious Pizza can easily compete with the very best even over there! Their sourdough is so brilliantly chewy, their imported quality ingredients so flavoursome and their passion for perfection is truly admirable in every possible way. This is mainly due to their excellent and highly-driven owner Florian Schramm who has carefully built up his vision and team to bring PROPER Neapolitan Pizza to Berlin. In all honesty, we wish all restaurants would have the same attitude Standard Serious Pizza has to gastronomy, because it’s very admirable. We popped a few questions over to the young boss to find out more about the way he works… Read more

Roberta Kocht

One of our favourite home-style restaurants in Mitte, Roberta Kocht features chef Petra Kowalenko cooking her South German / Austrian cuisine passionately for each & every guest herself! Open just three days a week, being able to see Petra put some much love into your dish from the open kitchen feels like an incredibly personal experience. We caught Petra on a break to ask her some super quick questions here…

Paper & Tea

Paper & Tea is undoubtedly one of the very best specialist tea shops not just in Berlin but in the world, and being huge fans of both of their beautiful locations in Mitte & Charlottenburg we decided to ask founder Jens De Gruyter a few questions about the business.. Read more
