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 | Leave a comment

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.

Best Burgers in Berlin: Umami

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

In the minds of many young Berlin hipsters, Prenzlauer Berg is nothing more than a ‘used-to-be’ neighbourhood where couples move to have children. Well, this is somewhat true. But it ain’t all bad up north, Prenzlauer Berg honestly has some of the best food in all of Berlin! If you don’t believe me, then you should put on your best stroller avoiding shoes and head to the Indochinese restaurant Umami.

Bite Club Berlinale: The Sunken Chip

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

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would be well aware that Berlin’s international film festival Berlinale is currently taking place in various cinemas around Berlin. But Berlinale isn’t just about films, it is also about networking, public talks, events, parties and, one of my favourite things, food! As part of Berlinale Kulinarisches Kino food program, Bite Club is currently curating a very special street food market that has a strong focus on slow food, pleasure and the environment with vendors selling locally sourced, organic and sustainable tasty food creations. One such vendor is the British owned fish & chip food truck, The Sunken Chip.

Best Views of Berlin: Mueggelturm

Posted on by admin Posted in Day Trips, Places, See, Travel | Leave a comment

A couple of weeks ago on a cold but mostly clear winters day, a friend and I took off on a Sunday afternoon adventure towards the outer eastern limits of Berlin to checkout a tip I acquired from Digital Cosmonaut. The adventure, that required a couple of trains, a bus and a bit of a hike, led us to the top of a small mountain in the forest just south of the Grosser Mueggelsee. Here we visited the somewhat ugly Berlin viewing tower, the Mueggelturm.

Tour de France 1987 in West Berlin

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

In the summer of 1987, just 2 months after the now famous May Day Riots, the enclosed city of West Berlin, that sat in the middle of East Germany hundreds of kilometers away the French border, played the obvious host to the opening stages of the 74th Tour de France.
