Last Friday I cycled up to Prenzlauer Berg to indulge in a night of ciders and cheese happening at Comptoir du Cidre in cooperation with Brie et ses amis, an online-shop for cheese. Wait what!? An online shop for cheese? What has become of this world, you ask? But if you put your doubts aside, my friend, you’re in for a treat. Because this cider and cheese feast is delicious.
Bless is by far the most creative fashion/accessory/interior/everything label we’ve got in Berlin – no wonder their store is as creative as the rest of their work. It’s located in a 3rd floor Altbau apartment on the border of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, and the store manager, Jordan Davidson, not only works, but actually lives here.
This pretty burger’s name is KRS-Bun, it’s Piri’s newest addition to their veggie burger menu and it is really delicious. Filled with tofu bathed in melted cheese, it has a surprisingly sultry “cheese-steak”-like texture, which is then smothered in sauteed red onions and generous Chipotle mayo, giving this veggie cheese burger a nice spice. You might know Piri’s as the winners of Berlin’s Best Cheese Burger, no wonder they’ve got some cheese-pertise.
The area around Markthalle 9 is – surprisingly – not only a center for foodies, but for fashion designers. More than one of the city’s best talents established their studios in the surrounding streets. And one of them just opened up his first shop – Michael Sontag.
We’re all producing way too much waste. Seriously. You know it, I know it, we all do. Just, many of us don’t do much about it.
Here to help you start re-considering your own waste-production and, consequently, change it, is a food store in Kreuzberg that is (almost) waste-free: Original Unverpackt.
