Michelin star dining just round the corner from Miniloft anyone? We mentioned Weinbar Rutz a little while back on the blog, but it’s time to dedicate more space to what has been described as possibly “the most unassuming Michelin star restaurant in the world”.

Street food is not a new concept to this fair city Miniloft calls home – with Berlin still in the throes of a street food renaissance thanks to numerous pop-ups and regular meetups, including Bite Club and the weekly Street Food Thursdays at the Markthalle Neun in Kreuzberg.

Looking for beer in Berlin? And perhaps more specifically – something other than a couple of pilsners on draft? Then Aufsturz bar may be the one for you. Located within the sprawling stretch of bars on Oranienburger Strasse (a mere stones throw from Miniloft), Aufsturz – whose name literally translates as “fall up” – boasts over 100 different beers, gleaned from around the world. For every beer, you’ll find a corresponding serving vessel, which means that Aufsturz can probably lay claim to the broadest glass collection in the area.

The effects of the various nationalities that comprise Berlin can be seen everywhere. Be it the Vietnamese Dong Xuan Center market or the amazing NY influence in the pastrami at Mogg & Melzer, it’s pretty clear that more = merrier when it comes to the international influence on Berlin’s food and drink. We’ve noticed a strong correlation between cracking coffee and Australia, which is why Café Bondi is the pick this week.

Sauvage

Of late, Paleolithic cuisine has been dividing opinions in many a NY, LA and London headline. The idea of unrefined food is nothing new – which is actually the main point of Paleolithic cuisine, a sort of “modern take” on a diet that stretches back 15,000 years. Based around the idea we really haven’t changed that much since then, Paleo cuisine avoids processed and refined-carbohydrate led foods, switching to simple, unrefined food that pass the hunter-gatherer test. It’s not eating like a caveman, but rooted in the principles of the diet at the time.

Labyrinth Kindermuseum
Labyrinth Kindermuseum

Monday, December 16, 2013

Berlin does have its fair share of heavy hitting museums that are also suitable to take younger visitors around. From the stones-throw-from-Miniloft located Naturkundenmuseum to the Deutsches TechnikMuseum, most tastes are catered for. But the beauty of the Labyrinth Children’s Museum, up in Wedding, is in its simple interactivity, that allows younger, inquiring minds the chance to get hands on during their stay.

Comfort food comes in many forms – but the overarching criteria could be surmised as food that warms your soul as much as it sates any physical hunger. For those moments where such sustenance is the order of the day, head to Cocolo on Gipstraße in Mitte. There, in a relatively small and permanently bustling restaurant, you’ll find your fix.
