September 19, 2017 / 4 Months abroad in France

Staying at the Vegan Surf Camp for three and a half weeks was a perfect time-out of normal life: yoga every morning, porridge with miso-tahini, surfing or siesta-ing at the beach, daily changing dinner buffets, movie nights a trip to San Sebastian …

June 17, 2017 / Bordeaux & West Coast

Bordeaux is the French town of wine… but I was more interested in the avo-toasts, matcha and coconut lattes, vegan gluten-free fudgy chocolate cookies and organic ice cream parlors across from cathedrals and churches on plazas, merged by narrow stoned alleyways and beautiful copper lamps . . . and I’m keeping myself short.  Plus wild beaches, spectacular sanddunes and the coasts of oyster farmings are just an hours train ride away.

From Eimsbüttel to the harbor: You’ll find comforting alpine cuisine that, amongst ripped-apart pancakes (Kaiserschmarrn) and tender Rindergulasches, make heart-warming Knödel and (also vegan) Spätzle.

February 18, 2017 / Ookie Dough and I

I finally finalized my idea to write down all my blogging goals for this year.  Eleven months is still enough of a year . . . not all New Years resolutions have to be printed on January 1st.

♦ Ottensen ♦ Poached Eggs ♦ Avocado ♦ Pancakes ♦

I have the impression that the new standard for breakfast places is avocado toast with poached eggs, at least in Germany that’s the new  discovery.  It seems to somehow qualify an eatery to some higher level – or maybe it just makes me think that they have some higher concept… a better one than just nicely assorted fruit, three different kinds of German rolls and samples of jam and cheese… however nice it’s made up to be, it’s just not my cup of tea.

In Berlin I wouldn’t say this is a very new thing, but in Hamburg the only avocado & poached egg combo I’ve had was in my kitchen – until, I came upon RAIN Cafeatery in the heart of Ottensen.

Eimsbüttel : ITALIAN ♦ Sternschanze: HIPSTER ♦
Ottensen: INNOVATIVE-INDUSTRIAL ♦

This hanseatic town has delicious and different types of pizza to offer.  Lots of classical Italian, but also innovative, creative and the build-your-own kind.  Below are my three favorite pizzerias to go to – they all differ quite a lot from each other.  It really depends on where you are, who you’re going with, and what you feel like eating to decide which one you opt for.
