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

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.

Berlin Getaways: Iceland Part 2

Posted on by admin Posted in Europe, Travel | Leave a comment

As Iceland is such an amazing photogenic holiday destination, one Berlin Getaways post simply doesn’t suffice. Berlin Getaways: Iceland Part 1 took in the first day of my journey from the capital Reykjavík, around the Golden Circle and finished up at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall. In this post, I pick up from Skógafoss and lead you further along the coast, taking in the gorgeous scenery along the way, as far as the fishing town of Höfn.

Best Food in Berlin: Dudes Delikatessen

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

In the year 2014 pulled meat sandwiches had a rise to fame in some restaurants, but more so at some of the street food markets that popped up around Berlin. Big Stuff Smoked BBQ may well be responsible for kick starting this trend, that has spawned places like Pignut BBQ, but if you’re looking to keep ahead of the game and try one of the newest, and one best in my opinion, pulled meat joints in town, I highly recommend Dudes Delikatessen.

Museum der Dinge – Museum of Things

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

As the winter chill sets in, a large amount of inspiration is often needed to leave the warm confines of our cosy apartments. On a cool winters day last year, whilst on an inspirational whim, I ventured out of my nest to visit the very special and kooky Museum der Dinge – Museum of Things.
