Haven’t made it to Mulax yet. Which is shame on me cause they always share very seductive dinner invitations.
They now want to bring back the Sonntagsbraten – you know how families would gather for a proper Sunday roast back in the days?
Well here’s what’s on the menu (sorry, too lazy to translate).
I’m unfortunately not in town but if you are here’s the event.
Wildkräutersalat, Anis-Joghurt-Dressing & Speckwürfel
Ruppiner Lammkeule, Röstkartoffeln, Speckbohnen & Jus
I knew there was something about Volker the first time I met him. He worked in BAERCK a wonderful store in Berlin Mitte back then. But I knew what connected us when I found out that he’s a self-taught chef and dedicated foodie (and besides that our fondness of spending Sundays in Panorama Bar).
Apart from having written and published a cook book already Volker now came up with his next great project “Food & Faces” [orig. "VOLKSSPEISUNG - Essen und Gesichter"]. He visits people in their homes, asks them to cook for him and then portraits them.
Here’s a sneak-peak of a recent session with a Majorcan (the German word for that is “mallorquinisch” – so beautiful!) fashion designer who studied at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and her German-born partner.
Feel free to send Volker an email on Facebook if you are curious to participate yourself.
I have to be honest and say I think the place is on the limit regarding cleanliness but the food is simply so tasty you close you’re eyes while chewing to get the full experience – problem solved.
Though I don’t eat gluten I have a weakness for french toast and after a french-toast-free year I decided to treat myself. What a treat! I’m sure it’s lethal if you’re not a pro.
Besides the toast the Mexican style breakfast plates are pure foodporn.
Now you know where to go this weekend.

Wow, didn’t realize I haven’t been posting here since November!
Hope you’ve been getting some updates on facebook or instagram #anuduakmoment.
The Grand Opening was yesterday. Hope you will grant us a visit over the next six weeks if you are in Berlin and feel like an extraordinary dining experience!
I’m still waiting for the next Pale Blue Door appearance in Berlin. Did you go in 2012?
Once again the Londoners are the lucky ones. This menu is mouthwatering!
It’s October, the season is on!Sorry, Che, we missed it…

Looking for new recipes? Check out this awesome raw apple pie.
Seems food (at least some) just taste better when closer to equator.
Have to admit my diet in Ibiza, due to high temperatures, mainly consisted of gazpacho and “melón y jamòn”. But since not entirely here are some photos of what I ate and drank.
Well, maybe there’s magic going on every day but I still think this is an event worth sharing: the Kitchensurfing Chef Fair, a four day event where twelve extraordinary chefs will create intimate dining experiences in private homes across Berlin.
Four of the chefs
Have a look on the website – sign up as a host or register to buy tickets once they launch!
I came to think of it after another lunch feast at Chaparro today since Raul who runs the place is one of the participating chefs.
You’ll find plenty of places in Berlin that offer “healthy food” but at nine out of ten places I visit I’m disappointed by the quality and the choice of ingredients.
So what a thrill today when Martin introduced me to a new place in Brunnenstrasse, close to Anklamerstrasse – of course I forgot the name. I might suffer from holiday brain?
I believe the super friendly owner, who learned his profession at Palace in Westberlin and a high end French restaurant in Knesebeckstrasse, was called Jonas. A young guy who I reckon will go far with the skills he and his team proved today.
Went for a small salad (which was plenty!) plus a bowl of bolognese which was deliciously sweet – I’m guessing from the use of carrots. (I’m a sucker for sweet.). Vegetarian, vegan, paleo, raw – all possible, I believe.
Also make sure to have a fresh apple juice! – the best I’ve ever had! Tasted like biting straight off a perfectly ripe apple. They have some special machine for it..?..holiday brains.
Update: it’s called Joris!
Working on a project for illy these days I of course get a lot of Italian input. And what I love most about Italians; their ability to enjoy….indulge…consume with pleasure.
This current Italian favorite of mine, was introduced to me at PANTRY though. The Americano; campari, sweet vermouth, and club soda. I have a thing for bitter cocktails. Maybe because they work all year round…hot, cold, wet, dry.
Spike it with gin and you have Negroni. Or I tend to add vodka, simply because.
The cocktail was first served in creator Gaspare Campari’s bar, Caffè Campari, in the 1860s. It was originally known as the “Milano-Torino” because of its ingredients: Campari, the bitter liqueur, is from Milan and Cinzano, the vermouth, is from Turin (Torino). It is popular belief that in the early 1900s, the Italians noticed a surge of Americans who enjoyed the cocktail. As a compliment to the Americans, the cocktail later became known as the “Americano”. A more probable explanation however is that the name was derived from the word “amaro”, which means “bitter” in Italian.
It is the first drink ordered by James Bond in the first novel in Ian Fleming’s series, Casino Royale. In the short story “From a View to a Kill” Bond chooses an Americano as an appropriate drink for a mere café; suggesting that “in cafés you have to drink the least offensive of the musical comedy drinks that go with them.” Bond always stipulates Perrier, for in his opinion expensive soda water was the cheapest way to improve a poor drink.
