So they say all good things but come to an end, this blog too, I don’t have the time anymore. Those who can read French can still follow my adventures in Berlin and around the world, culinary and other, on my travel blog here.
A few weeks back, I read about a French place I did not know yet, La Buvette, and since it looked nice I took a bunch of friends and we went there for dinner. It’s located in Prenzlauer Berg, close to S+U Schönhauser Allee. Wine lovers really enjoyed their “poison” and the whole experience was nice.
Cosy place, friendly staff and good food. I had the rumpsteak, it comes with a nice mustardy creamy sauce and tasty home made French fries: it was absolutely delicious and so was the moeulleux au chocolat (lava cake), salads and quiches and cassoulet and duck were also quite good according to the other guests (even if the Quiche Lorraine is not authentic, they put cheese in it, but there is no cheese in the real original traditionnal one).
Prices are ok, all in all a fantastic evening, we shall come back
I had heard a lot about Tommi’s Burger Joint in Mitte, close to Rosenthaler Platz and finally went a few weeks ago. The place has quite an original decoration and a super friendly staff. I had a bacon cheeseburger, it was really tasty, good quality meat and the possibility to add (for free) a few sauces or ingredients like pickles and oignons and such. I also had a milkshake which was super nice. The only negative point is the price, it’s quite expensive, but still worth it.
Fairytale Bar is a marvelous cocktail bar in Friedrichshain. The place is hidden in a residency area close to Vollkspark Friedrichshain and is a true jewel. The theme is obviously fairy tales, with the waitress dressed as a french maid, cute decoration, the menu itself brings a few surprises and offers some very creative cocktails, but they can of course make most of the classics. Really worth a visit.
Some time ago, I went to Du Bonheur, a French style bakery in Mitte, just outside U Bernauer Straße. The name means “Some hapiness” and it’s really a place you get some tasty hapiness.
Super nice place, cosy, friendly staff. Brioche and croissants are super tasty too. Pâtisseries are amazing, I tried several, they look and taste sooo good, the eclair are not made the traditionnal way but they’re really good. Go there and your taste buds will for sure be happy. Plus, the hot chocolate is excellent too!
Osteria del Bivio is an Italian restaurant in Schuttrange, close to Luxemburg airport. While visiting a friend in a nearby village, we went there for dinner. The restaurant itself is very cute, really nice stone walls. Service is good, friendly staff, we felt warmly welcomed.
My friend told me their cordons bleus are amazing but we all had pizzas. And they were great, this is real Italian pizza, good ingredients, thin crust, loved it. For dessert I had the moelleux au chocolat with melty heart and really tasty vanilla icecream, wonderful. Prices are ok. Would definetely be up to go back on my next visit in Luxemburg.
I read about Diderot, a cosy place for French food and also organising cultural events in Prenzlauer Berg, and the next day I had to do a painful and very early medical test so I decided to treat myself with a nice breakfast and went there. The big breakfast for 1 person could be enough for 2, the brioche is amazing, tasty cheese, nice ham and bread and fruit salad and so. A French pastry chef organizes French brunches (buffet) every Sunday, from the photos she posted on Facebook, it looks amazing, I have to try this soon!
