This is the longest I’ve ever gone without publishing a new post on this site. Even the stress of moving to Germany or being hospitalized for two weeks wasn’t enough to keep me from posting somewhat regularly. But that changed with all this crazy lockdown stuff. It’s been so stressful, so emotionally traumatic, that I […]

I’m freaking out right now. I don’t know about you, but this is some scary sh*t. Quite literally, the whole world is dealing with the effects of this virus situation, more so than we’ve ever had to deal with another global crisis. And it’s just the beginning. We’re in for a long road of fighting […]
I really hate cold weather. But despite this, I love Christmas markets. I’m not even much of a holiday person, but the Christmas markets in Germany are so much fun! I’ve made it a point to get to a bunch of them over the years, and while there are still a few gaping holes in […]
Andy and I continue to explore different cuisines in Berlin with the Berlin International Restaurant Project. This time I’m telling you about our experiences with an Irish pub, a Dutch burger place, and a Japanese restaurant that isn’t sushi.
It seems I’ve fallen a little behind on writing about my Berlin International Restaurant Project. So now I’m trying to catch up on all the ones I’ve been to since I wrote about Turkey and Indonesia. The three I’m telling you about today were all street food of some variety, not traditional restaurants.
Berlin has a large Turkish population and a large number of Turkish restaurants. But many of them are fast food style döner kebab places. Which are great for a late night post-drinking snack, but not exactly the highest quality or most authentic Turkish food out there. So I held out a little longer to find […]
Poland is only an hour away from Berlin and there’s a pretty big Polish population here, so I didn’t think I’d have a hard time finding a Polish restaurant. On the other hand, I was surprised to even find a Peruvian restaurant here. Polish food in Berlin Andy and I go to Poland a lot. […]
Portugal is a country I just have to get back to someday. When I was in Spain for a study abroad program in college, our group took a weekend trip to Portugal, but I honestly can’t even remember where we went. (This was 17 years ago…) A few years ago Andy and I fell in […]
Berlin restaurants have a bad habit of closing down only a few weeks after they open. There’s one place near our favorite Mexican restaurant that was four different restaurants in about six months. Now when we see someplace new, we don’t always rush in to try it. We’d rather wait a few weeks and see […]
Today’s International Restaurant Project includes cuisines I don’t know much about. I had eaten Indian food a couple of times before, but not enough to know what I like. I had never eaten Israeli food. And I think I’ve only ever had Korean food twice before this. So it was an interesting mix. Take a […]
