Muret la Barba

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

This is two Italian restaurants in a row we've reported on, but this one is too lovely to keep to ourselves... Muret la Barba brings great joy: a simple, autenthic, delicious Italian restaurant and wine bar near the Miniloft apartments, with a huge wine selection, most of which can also be ordered by the glass.

Heading home to your Miniloft in that netherland between night and day, the smiling potato with the backwards baseball cap is there to save you from your hunger. Tom's Fritten (Berliner for french fries, of course) serves hand-cut, hand-made fries out of its cheerful truck.

La Galleria Italiana
La Galleria Italiana

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Don't be fooled by the hum-drum exterior on a busy street: La Galleria Italiana, a homey little hole in the wall with 30 seats, serves tasty homemade pastas and other delectable delicacies. It's another great addition to the roster of good restaurants within walking distance of Miniloft.

Schlachtensee and Die Fischerhütte
Schlachtensee and Die Fischerhütte

Thursday, August 5, 2010

In lazy summer, a trip out to one of Berlin's many lovely lakes is the perfect day trip. The lake Schlachtensee is smaller and more intimate than the nearby Wannsee, with wooded banks, grassy knolls, and clean waters; it's easily accessible by public transport.

Themroc

Friday, April 9, 2010

Themroc is a jewel of a restaurant, hidden in plain sight - I'd ridden my bike past this little hole in the wall dozens of times and never realized it was there. Now that my eyes have been opened, I can't believe how long I've lived without it.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

In a city where hamburgers are relative newcomers to the culinary scene ('Bouletten', although also made of ground beef, are really no comparison), the title for Berlin's best burger is hotly contested.

Monday, February 8, 2010

The Tadschikische Teestube (Tajikistan tearoom) is a warm and welcoming treasure hidden behind the Neue Wache on the busy tourist hub between Unter de Linden, Museum Island and Alexanderplatz, the perfect spot for a break after a day wandering around cold Berlin.

Happily a friendly new French brasserie has opened around the corner from Minilofts, a place that hits the spot, whether you opt for a casual yet classy lunch or relaxed dinner with good French wine.

Henne
Henne

Thursday, September 24, 2009

At Henne, a Berlin institution, chicken-loving West Berliners used to lick their fingers with a distinctive view - the Berlin Wall stood right smack in front of the entrance. The menu is simple and to the point: a half chicken (€7,50), fried to perfection in a buttermilk batter, served with country bread, and sides of potato or slaw (€3,50).
