In this week’s Kitchen Tunes edition, we sneak into the kitchen of Fast Rabbit: Combining the concept of fast food using only vegan ingredients, they serve wraps in all their varieties. The vegan deli quickly became one of our favorite spots when in Prenzlauer Berg. So, here’s what the owners listen to while preparing their famous ‘dirty rolls’ - some Chilly Gonzales topped with Tame Impala!
Italian cooking is always kind of falling off the table when I think about interesting things to try and explore in Berlin. It somewhat is such a staple, that I tend to not think too much about it… But then, it’s such delicious food with so much potential…!

I was hesitant to call this article “Escape”, Grunewald obviously belongs to Berlin, yet everyone I know needs at least 30mins on bike, train or in car to get there. And I definitely go there to escape the city, to enjoy the forest, the lakes and all the oddities this richest of all Berlin districts has to offer. And when I was asked by Heineken to name my favorite five places in one of my favorite districts for their new “Open Your City” campaign and brand new heatmap, I immediately knew it was this.

Sadly, the Bar Market, this lovely event serving all kinds of cocktails, wines and other booze, is not happening anymore, but the urge to create a new event circling around stellar alcoholic beverages persisted. Sommeliers Helen Mol and Billy Wagner teamed up with Kavita Meelu and Prince Charles to bring us: champagne – not the ordinary bubbly wine, but the speciality from France – in a never before seen variety. As if that weren’t enough, they’re adding Disco music, disco balls, delicious food by Parker Bowles, Vogueing (!) and there we have it: The Champagne Studio, happening for the first time this Sunday at Prince Charles.
