Weekend lunch from one of my favourite German eateries: The sensational, home-made Leberkäse from Meierei in Pberg. Probably the best of its kind in Berlin. And no worries, 99% of all Leberkäse actually have zero liver content. Just like this one. Just one fat slice of sausage to be smothered in sweet mustard.

Every night ten guests get to sit down at Shiori Arai’s counter for a multiple course Japanese omakase menu. It’s elegant, sophisticated and very Japanese. Pictured is the eggplant and lobster dish. Highly recommended food experience! Read the full story on the website!

When it comes to great winebars, there is no way around JaJa in Neukölln. Focus lies on natural wines from France and small plates to share, like this spectacular dish of fried mushrooms with a cured egg yolk. I’ve spent many late nights at this place and I recommend you to do the same.

For everybody who’s in to comtemporary Gastropubs I highly recommend checking out brand new St. Bart’s in Kreuzberg. This little restaurant, with a strong emphasis on hearty snacks and natural wines, is only in its infancy but a place with loads of potential. Try the pork terrrine and the mussels! Check google for location!

News alert: House of Small Wonder updated their Eggs Benedict by incorporating bacon into the actual buns. Pretty damn good and definitely aspiring for the best Eggs Benedict in Berlin.

For all Chinese food fanatics: Wok Show in Northern Pberg just started serving these incredible pork baozis. Basically the most comforting thing you've eaten. Get them whole they're hot. 🔥🔥🔥

Cecconi's in the Berlin Soho House might be everything Berlin isn't with it's high prices and rich and beautiful audience. But it's also a stunning restaurant that serves very solid and entertaining Italian food. Simply a place to go if you want to get away from Berlin for one night. Tip: Sit at the Kitchen Bar for the best experience.

The legendary crab rolls at Madame Ngo. Went back on Monday just to try them. Every week one of the owners aunties smuggles the best rice paper sheets from Hanoi to make these - the perfect crunch tells the whole story!

Quail with polenta and chanterelles. Behold one of the starters at To the Bone, the brand new Italian steakhouse on Torstraße in the venue of former Hartweizen. Crazy beautiful space. Promising food. Great steaks from Tuscany. This could become an interesting spot in the neighborhood.

I live across the street from this location! Will definitely grab a cup. Thanks!
Overripe tomatoes from Brandenburg that have been grilling over very low heat charcoal for a whole day. Served with rhyme and tomato drippings. Berlin's newest fine dining restaurant Ernst in Wedding is in my opinion one of Germany's most interesting dining experiences right now. Every night 12 guests are served around 30 courses around a bar in one of the most produce focused dining experiences you'll ever have. Get your tickets now, booked straight for the next weeks already!

Great tip!!
Outside of Berlin, one of the places I get asked the most restaurant questions about is Munich. So I decided to put together a guide to some of the best modern, casual and fine dining rateries I've encountered there, as well as (of course) beer gardens. If you're planning a trip there anytime soon, check out your eating options on the blog today: http://www.berlinfoodstories.com

Ok serious note here: The white chantarelle and speck pizza at Gasthaus Figl is absolutely spectacular. A mix between a roman style pizza and a flammkuchen, this thing is the crunchiest pizza you'll have in Berlin. Red pizzas are not as good here.

HAPPY MONDAY! And here's to this, the last day of Berlin's Best Ice Cream Scoops. Today we're rounding things off on a colourful note with Die Eismacher's all neon Ube flavour scoop - made with purple yam and coconut cream. Not only is this one photogenic ice cream, it's also damn tasty as well. ENJOY! And if you've got top tips for good ice cream flavours in Berlin I'd love to hear them 🤗.

THE SUN IS OUT! Making it the perfect day to chow down on some of Berlin's best ice cream scoops. Today's recommendation is Giorgi Lombardi's fantastic Fior di Latte flavour. These guys make the famous Italian semi-soft cheese taste like nothing you've ever had before... Check it out!

Ladies and gentlemen. Day 3 of the BEST ICE CREAM SCOOPS IN BERLIN involves a musical number in the form of Cuore di Vetro's flavour dedication to David Bowie. Check out their 'Black Star' ice cream featuring chestnut ice cream, chocolate ganache and tobacco infusion. Yes you read that right: tobacco.

Day 2 of the BEST SCOOPS IN BERLIN takes us to an old favourite in the form of Hokey Pokey's UNBELIEVABLE Caramel & Sea Salt ice cream - easily the best caramel ice cream in Berlin. If you only have one ice cream this summer make it this one!

Welcome to a whole week dedicated to THE BEST ICE CREAM SCOOPS IN BERLIN. We're kicking things off at Waffle oder Becher. These guys have invested some SERIOUS time and energy into developing their recipes over the last year. The result is one of the best Pistachio flavours you'll find in Berlin. A real unknown pleasure and totally unexpected!

Thanks! We got to taste Khwan at Bite Club this past weekend: deliciousness! I only wish the restaurant was open on more nights.
New restaurant alert: The people behind acclaimed Maison Han just opened a new place in Pberg and it's pretty promising. Modern Vietnamese patisserie is the title and they have loads of cool Vietnamese desserts on the menu! Also: big menu of Banh mi sandwiches.

Hey Per! What's your favourite Greek restaurant? Missing mezze 🍴🇬🇷
Hey there! That's a very relevant question but unfortunately not one that I have a good answer for - for some reason it's very hard to get great Greek food in Berlin. One exception is Rises on Veteranenstraße, a super cute Greek deli that also sells the best Greek ingredients in the whole city!

Our group went tonight and had the chef's choice menu (they bring you like 6 starters and 5 mains) and we really enjoyed it. I had lower expectations after Ignas Pečiūra and Per Meurling 's reviews but our group all found it very satisfying. The starters definitely outshine the mains but they told us the chef tried a couple new mains tonight and we really enjoyed it all. I definitely recommend going with a group and ordering the chef's choice.

Have your tried black poodle? Stumbled upon this gem over the weekend. Very unique and tasty!
The best way to pimp a Shiso Burger is not to order the Wagyu upgrade but instead to order another meat pattie.
