Food in Berlin.


The first time I visited Berlin, I was really surprised at how amazing the food was. We're spending the New Year in Berlin with some pals and, always thinking about my belly, I've just called to book us a table for New Year's Eve. My first choice was Schwarzwaldstuben, shown above in a picture I took to make sure I'd never forget where it was. It's a restaurant that does food from the Alsace, which seems to be meat, cheese, pickles and potato in some form, i.e. amazing. We spotted it when we walked past – it's in a gorgeous neighbourhood of galleries and cosy restaurants and alehouses – and people were eating huge stacks of shredded cheese and fine looking ham. Unfortunately they are closed for NYE. So I booked Gugelhof, another Alsatian restaurant. (Those two words don't look good together do they?) Happily, they are open. I had a great raclette experience at this place which I'm looking forward to repeating. (Actual cheese that went down my gullet pictured below).




God, I'm absolutely starving now. Are there any other Berlin restaurants that need to be visited?

  2. You know, I've never been to Berlin! Isn't that strange? I would very much like to go though. Any trips we take at the moment would be rural though - we are both craving some time out of Oxford in mountains or forests. I want to visit the Peak District after John's exams.

  4. Abigail - it's my favourite food feast ever. I only had my first one a few years ago at Borough Market and it blew my mind. Hmmmm...
