I found a great fare for Berlin in February for the Berlin Film Festival - Berlinale. 15th- 25th February 2018 Berlin Film Festival has become probably Europe’s best-respected film festival.

The wurst, either curry or bratwurst, no offense to the Berliners, is a sausage and no more. In fact the sauces and the curry make the meat taste less so you can put whatever sausage you want. It is good, a correct street food for any season, but it's no excitement of senses, nothing to … Continue reading Berlin’s traditional street food, the wurst, 2.5 ★ ★

It is true, I had never tasted such good Vietnamese cuisine for ages. Just by mistake and having little choice on Nollendorf Platz, i came across this hidden wonder. No luxury, no fuzz, even a little bit run down .... not so clean but the smell was so appealing. It is really cheap by all western … Continue reading Sao Mai, best Vietnamese restaurant in Berlin, discovered by mistake.

But I do recommend Berlin for so many reasons that I shall detail in the DOs . I personally love Berlin, the locals and the derelict … Continue reading Berlin top DON’Ts and some DOs, part one.
