Best Food in Berlin: Oma Marnie's


Recently, whilst on one of my regular neighbourhood spaziergang's, I stumbled upon a new little New Zealand bakery, which I suspect is going to bring cheer to the lives of many Expat Brits and Australasian's, like myself, who occasionally get that hankering for good

When the sun shines down on Berlin, there is little I like more than hanging out in the gorgeous urban gardens at Tempelhofer Feld. On my latest visit, my hunger got the better of me, so I decided to grab some Korean soul food from a little hut, within walking distance

Recently, whilst on one of my regular neighbourhood spaziergang’s, I stumbled upon a new little New Zealand bakery, which I suspect is going to bring cheer to the lives of many Expat Brits and Australasian’s, like myself, who occasionally get that hankering for good ol’ meat pie! If this sounds like you, then you probably should pay a  visit to Oma Marnie’s Pie Bakery in Prenzlauer Berg.

Berlin will buzz this weekend, and the weather, that is set to reach the low 30′s, is only going to add to the excitement!

Here are just 5 such events, with more suggestions to be found in the ‘What’s on Weekly’ sidebar.

Karneval der Kulturen @ Kreuzberg- That’s right! It’s once again Karneval weekend! A weekend full of colour, dancing, music, eating and drinking, and simply one of the funnest weekends on the Berlin events calendar.

When the sun shines down on Berlin, there is little I like more than hanging out in the gorgeous urban gardens at Tempelhofer Feld. On my latest visit, my hunger got the better of me, so I decided to grab some Korean soul food from a little hut, within walking distance to Tempelhof, called Ban Ban Kitchen.

Finally, after cutting through German bureaucratic red tap, Tommi’s Burger Joint has opened its doors, and with doing so, has brought new competition into the highly competitive race for Berlin’s best burger. But is Tommi’s worth all the hype?

The sun is currently shining over Berlin and the city is abuzz with excitement for the impending summer. This weekends weather does forecast a little rain, but don’t let that stop you from enjoy one of the many events going on this weekend. Below are my top 5 picks of events taking place this weekend, but like always, there are more event suggestions in the sidebar.

Kiki Blofeld Opening @ Kiki Blofeld- For those of you have been living in Berlin for a couple of years now, you may remember the tranquil beach bar Kiki Blofeld, whose original location is now home to some ugly buildings. These guys are back with a new location in the sunny suburb of Schoeneweide. Check out their new location from tonight.

Best Burgers in Berlin: The Bird

Posted on by admin Posted in Burgers, Eat | 5 Comments

I have been writing Berlin burger reviews for over a year now, but still, after every review I post, I get suggestions of other places that are in fact the best in other peoples minds. There is one place in town, well actually two now, that is suggested more than any other, and is one place I am still yet to review. This isn’t because I haven’t visited until now, quite the contrary, it is rather more so because I thought it was somewhat pointless posting about what I consider to be the best burger in Berlin in my first post of this series. So here it is folks… Mogli Oak Berlin‘s favourite burger can be found in none other than that famous Prenzlauer Berg burger joint, The Bird!

I’m Hungover and Bored Sundays: Go Trabi Go!

Posted on by admin Posted in I'm Hungover And Bored Sundays, Learn, Read | Leave a comment

Tonight, thanks to a friend from the sunny East Berlin suburb of Hohenschoenhausen, I am able to share with you the post re-unification “box office success” about an East German family adventuring out of the Eastern Block, in their trustworthy Trabant, into the ‘unknown’ West. This film is none other than the aptly titled German comedy, Go Trabi Go (below…with English subtitles)!

An Interview with French Street Artist Sobre

Posted on by admin Posted in Street Art | Leave a comment

Some time ago now I asked the internet gods, in my post entitled Who is SOBR, for information about the street artist behind those many dancing girls you find pasted up around Berlin. A minor stroke of fortune kick started my search, which later led to an email interview with this artist known as SOBR.

I’m Hungover and Bored Sundays: Komet Bernhard

Posted on by admin Posted in I'm Hungover And Bored Sundays, Learn | Leave a comment

Have you ever been to an open air party, a club or Mauerpark and seen a crazy old fella blowing bubbles and enjoying life seemingly more than anyone else on earth? His wizard-like appearance and his antics entertain many Berliners and tourists alike, but is there more to Komet (as he is known) than just a crazy partying old dude? Below is a bit of an insight into Komet, his personal history and his partying ways. He is somewhat of a motor mouth, so good luck trying to understand him or to even read the subtitles!
