BERLIN: An Awesome Underground Supper Clubbing Experience in Berlin! @SupperClubbing





Supper Clubbing Berlin-52.jpg

Supper Clubbing is a private dining activity aimed at introducing new people to each other and experiencing different cultures and food in the comfort of other people's homes. It started as an underground restaurant tradition in Cuba and later expanded to the US and Europe as a social dining experience.

In Manila, we have our own supper clubs but in various forms--organized private dining, guerilla dinners, and food trips. Take note, it's Supper Clubs (with a double 'P') and not Super Club, which refers to the Night Clubbing experience.

In Berlin, you can join a supper club via http://www.supperclubbing.com/ to learn more about the food, culture, and the hospitality of Berliners.

Here's our Berlin Supper Club experience with Johannes...

Dinner in Berlin is quite late, at around 8pm during summer, when the sun sets at a later time.

I was personally excited to meet and eat with our host to get a glimpse of life in Berlin.

Most homes in Berlin do not have airconditioning because it's cold for a huge part of the year, so it doesn't justify investing in one for just 2-3 months of summer weather.

The condo was laid out with the dining, kitchen, and living areas in one big spacious room.

Johannes had just come from a vacation in Greece, so naturally, our dinner was healthy and Greek-inspired.

I loved the hummus, and cheese that started off our supper clubbing experience. :)  It was interesting to taste teh rice-filled wine leaves which is a mediterranean specialty.

The highlight of the living room is his personal library of various books, magazines, and manuals.

I was impressed by the fact that Johannes wasn't just our host but also our cook and the one who cleaned up after we were done. There was no katulong whatsoever...galing!

I always love Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, which is an easy wine to enjoy and pair with food.

The soup is personally plated by our host. We just helped out in serving the soup bowls.

During my trip to Berlin, I discovered that Camille Co, one of the top fashion bloggers in Manila, is also a foodie and loves to eat anything. So there's no truth to the rumor that fashion bloggers don't eat! :)

Supper Clubbing Berlin-60.jpg
The main course is served-- Feta cheese sticks (boerek) ... 

Supper Clubbing Berlin-62.jpg
...with grilled chicken suvlaki...

... beef suvlaki ...

...and gyros - grilled beef with onions.

Of course, a Greek meal wouldn't be complete without a shot of Ouzo!

Supper Clubbing Berlin-51.jpg
What an awesome way to learn more about the lifestyle, culture, and food in Berlin and experience genuine Berliner hospitality!
