Burgers in Berlin: Bun Bao


Since my first tasty bao burger experience at the relatively new Indochinese restaurant Umami I've been on the hunt for other bao burger creations. As part of this search I recently teamed up with Danee from Lucy Vs. The Globe to sample the bao burgers from

May Day Tips Special: Get Me Outta MyFest


It seems as though every blog in Berlin has drummed up a guide for the chaotic May Day protests and street party held annually in Kreuzberg. I thought I might jump on the bandwagon (or jump off it), but with a bit of a twist. Below are a few tips of events that will take

Bewildering Berlin: Spargel


If you were to arrive to Berlin as a newbie in Spring, I imagine one of the first German words you master would be the much talked about Spargel! Spargel in Facebook statuses. Spargel in advertisements. Spargel in supermarkets. Spargel at markets. Spargel in restaurants.

Berlin Street Art: Alice Pasquini


Yesterday I took myself on a little street art spaziergang around Berlin to try and track down new pieces of Alice Pasquini's which she painted here over the last week or so. Thanks to modern technology and fellow street art lovers I was able to track all of her pieces

Best Food in Berlin: Co Co - banh mi deli


This one has been a long time coming, but I think it is about time I share with you one of my favourite and most visited sandwich joints in town, who produce delicious and fresh Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, Co Co - banh mi deli. The banh mi sandwich invention is

It seems as though every blog in Berlin has drummed up a guide for the chaotic May Day protests and street party held annually in Kreuzberg. I thought I might jump on the bandwagon (or jump off it), but with a bit of a twist. Below are a few tips of events that will take place away from the MyFest crowds, the rock and bottle throwing, the loud music and all that other chaos.

1. Open Air Parties

If you want to party, but are not so keen on hitting up the MyFest area, there are a few other options to check out including:

Bewildering Berlin: Spargel

Posted on by admin Posted in Eat, Learn, Other, Read | Leave a comment

If you were to arrive to Berlin as a newbie in Spring, I imagine one of the first German words you master would be the much talked about Spargel! Spargel in Facebook statuses. Spargel in advertisements. Spargel in supermarkets. Spargel at markets. Spargel in restaurants. Spargel in conversations you hear. At this time of year, you can’t escape it! But what is up with this German Spargel obsession?

Thai & Techno

Posted on by admin Posted in Bars, Clubs, Drink, Eat, Featured Events, Other, See, Weekend Tips, What's On Weekly | Leave a comment

At the end of last year, Opal collective gave birth to a very special and successful event that fused together Thai cuisine with Techno music. The aptly titled, Thai & Techno, returns this Friday evening, with hawker styled Thai street food, Thai inspired drink concoctions and deep techno!

If you want to check it out, Thai & Techno opens their doors at 6 pm this Friday at Fluxbau in Kreuzberg. Entry is 2 € before 11 pm and 6 € thereafter. I imagine this event will be quite popular, so if you want to eat, I’d suggest getting in early!

Taste of Australia: Bundaberg Ginger Beer

Posted on by admin Posted in Drink | Leave a comment

Living in a foreign country often unveils secret love affairs that you never knew you had. Suddenly, when things you take for granted at home are no longer around, you miss them… oh so much. But then when you find out that that certain thing is now available in your adopted home, hallelujah! This is the feeling that I got when recently I found a bottle of Bundaberg Ginger Beer in a Spaeti in Kreuzberg!

Bundaburg Ginger Beer

If you are unfamiliar with Bundaberg Ginger Beer, you are most likely not from Australia! But let me just tell you, this drink is about as good as it gets in terms of ginger beer! Forget that pussy ginger ale you find in supermarkets here, if you want those Moscow Mules spiced up with a real ginger drink, Bundaberg Ginger Beer is your new best friend!

If you are an Aussie wanting to rekindle a forgotten flame or if you are just curious to try this spicy ginger brew, I have so far found Bundaberg Ginger Beer in a few places including Getraenkefeinkost Berlin, KaDeWe and the Australian Shop, as well as, strangely enough, a few petrol stations in Berlin. But for me the most convenient location to grab a bottle, is from the Spaeti situated between the U1 & U8 platforms at Kottbusser Tor. Here you will only pay 1,85 euros, whereas other locations are around 2,50 + euro.

Berlin Documentary: Rabbit a la Berlin

Posted on by admin Posted in I'm Hungover And Bored Sundays, Learn, Watch | 2 Comments

Mauerhase aka Rabbit a la Berlin is a documentary which tells the story of rabbits living in divided Berlin from before, during and then after the Berlin Wall. This is an extremely well done documentary, which uses real footage of the rabbits who lived in between the two Berlin walls and who then later spread around the city causing many problems. The story of the Berlin Wall rabbits is very smartly linked to the lives of East Germans from before, during and after the Berlin Wall.

Best Food in Berlin: House of Small Wonder

Posted on by admin Posted in Eat, Other | Leave a comment

In recent years, Berlin has seen another Asian cuisine boom, this time, with Korean and Japanese restaurants becoming a new city favourite. There are your not-so-new classic places like Yam Yam and Cocolo Ramen that have been around for a few years, but as the market expands, new and tasty alternatives are popping up, in sometimes slightly unusual locations. One such new place, is the incredibly cute Japanese with a Brooklyn twist restaurant of House of Small Wonder.
