TIM RAUE Berlin-68.jpg

TIM RAUE is a two-star Michelin Chef and is considered as one of the best Chefs in Berlin. He opened his flagship store, Tim Raue, together with his wife Marie-Anne last July 2010, serving Asian-inspired cuisine. It is the top 78 restaurant in the San Pellegrino list.

Tim also opened two new restaurants in 2013 in Berlin–Sra Bua by Tim Rau (Japanese-Thai cuisine) in Hotel Aldon Kempinski, and La Soupe Populaire (German cuisine) in the Studio House of Bötzow Brewery, along Prenzlauer Allee.

BERLIN: White Trash Fast Food – “Exotic food just like Mama used to make!”

White Trash Berlin-71.jpg

What can you expect from a restaurant named “White Trash Fast Food“? While the place sounds very touristy and kitschy, their marketing is irresistible. I first saw the cool ad for WTFF when I landed at Berlin airport and I was immediately interested to check it out.

Our guide, Matthias, highly recommended it as a first timer’s taste of the night life in Kreuzberg. Here’s our White Trash Fast Food experience in Berlin…

BERLIN: TEUFELSBERG–Abandoned Cold War-era Spy Station on top of Devil’s Mountain!

Tuefelsberg Berlin-139.jpg

I must admit, when I saw Teufelsberg in the itinerary as the culminating activity for our last day in Berlin, I expected it to be boring.

But the charm of visiting the once abandoned building that has been turned into one of the largest outdoor gallery parks grows on you, then you start to appreciate how different Berlin is. (Read “How Berlin has ruined living anywhere else“.)

Here’s a photo essay on our tour of Teufelsberg

BERLIN: Meeting The Filipina Diplomatic Wife over Berlin Chocolates @DiplomaticWife

TheDiplomaticWife at Winterfeldt Schokoladen-26.jpg

BERLIN Chocolates are one of the best pasalubongs you can bring home to your loved ones or friends back in Manila. 

It was awesome to meet The Diplomatic Wife, a Filipina Expat diplomat now assigned in Berlin. She introduced me to one of the best boutique chocolate shops in Berlin–Winterfeldt Schokoladen.  

You can follow her ongoing food and travel adventures in Berlin with a Filipina perspective. 

I was able to visit Fassbender & Rauch at the Gendarmenmarkt first, so I had a something to contrast with my Winterfeldt Schokoladen experience.

BERLIN: Hasir + Doner Kebab – The Best Turkish Food Outside of Turkey! @BarbaraWoolsey

HASIR Turkish Restaurant-40.jpg

BERLIN is known more for having the Best Turkish food (outside of Turkey) than having the best German food.

The Turks migrated to Berlin when nobody wanted to live there after WW2, and became the largest ethnic minority group in the city. The largest Turkish communities can be found in Neukölln, Kreuzberg, and Mitte.

You’ve got to try the Turkish Friday Market, Doner Kebab, and Hasir Restaurant in Kreuzberg when in Berlin…

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…
