The Daily Dish is in over at Wedding’s Thai shop, Cozymazu. The joint has been in action for the last three years and quietly continues to win fans with their authentic offerings. For today’s Daily Dish we got the Mǐ Fěn Gēng Mifen, a rice noodle soup from the north of Taiwan, with Homemade Fish Balls, Roasted Cabbage, Salted Radish, Celery and Mu’ Er Mushrooms. Yes the weather is toasty, but take it from an old Bedouin tradition, hot liquids releave the heat, also, its nice when they are super yummy. First come first serve, available only as long as the stock lasts. The Daily Dish is in Wedding!! Go Eat That Now!!
The new Amo Hotel over in Mitte is opening its doors this weekend after a long renovation process in the heart of the city. The new location will boast a few gastronomy designations on the premises, including one Mediterranean gastropub type shop currently in fashion in town, by the name of Joseph, which pulls in an old school Jersulamite head chef. Besides the restaurant the hotel will have a full lounge and bar set up tucked under ground in their subterranean lobby. No word on whether the bar lounge will have its own food program, but presuming it all comes from the same kitchen, some snacks could conceivably be a part of the program. In the same address there is also a new Hamburg based salad bar chain, Stadt Salat, that is making its first appearance in town, but there is no word on exactly when they will open as they are still in construction. More on Amo, Joseph and their crew as it develops.
Nomy Blog, the gastronomy blog put out a nice interview with Berlin pastry heroine, Cynthia Barcomi. In it is a testimonial of all the changes she has seen through out her time defining a genre of dining in Berlin. The interview disects not only Berlin, but the process of any young restaurateur going at it for the first time. The struggles, the fears, the compromise and the heartbreak that goes along with running a restaurant. An important read for young gastro owners who are looking for some sage advice and guidance. Check it out here.

Restaurant reveiws of the week for the Mitte contingency, we got gourmet kebabs, Japanese authenticity, and Berghain-esque dining.
Mitte- Kebap With Attitude, the new Mitte “gourmet” kebap shop got a stinger from TIP Berlin who in their short three paragraphs railed against the shop in regards to cultural appropriation, overpriced kebabs, and the restaurateurs pedigree. Uff… this one was harsh. Check it out here.
Mitte- Neumond, the Mitte based fine diner got a write up from Cream Guides that was more of a feature for the shops new French born chef with Algerian roots. They say the shop grew leaps and bounds and it is due to the new influence. Check it out here.
Mitte- The NoName, new Mitte fine diner got a large write up from I Heart Berlin that loved the shop beyond words they said at one point. From the food to the “berghain-esque” design they enjoyed every part of the experience. Check it out here.
Mitte- Zenkichi, the Mitte based Japanese brasserie got a love letter from the highly discerning Berliner Zeitung, who got to the point rather quickly by stating how really Japanese the experience felt. From the food to the design, there was much attention to detail in the review. Check it out here.
Seems as though Mr. Eatler’s earlier predictions that time limitations may impinge on the opening of the new Amo Hotel restaurant, Joseph, may have been incorrect. It looks as if the new Mediterranean/Israeli joint which pulled in an old school Tel Aviv/Jerusalem celebrity chef is already going into some press events and will be in operation by the end of the month. The design concept for the Mediterranean trend friendly sharing restaurant is produced by two Frankfurt based fraternal restaurateurs who are the proprietors of a shop called “Ima.” They will be having some official and unofficial press events over the next days which can only mean that the restaurant will indeed be ready to roll along with the official opening of the hotel. Official opening events are inevitably due in the next weeks, but Mr. Eatler will keep you abreast.
The Daily Dish is in over at Friedrichshain’sThai BBQ champ Khwan. The current Thai barbecue prince has been maintained its place in the gastronome firmament over the last few years and continues delivering the goods on the regular. For today’s Daily Dish we got the Seven Day Fermented Pork Ribs with Sweet Fish Sauce and Chilli making an appearance on the pass all this week. Apparently always been a firm favourite with the crowd so make sure to grab yours while the getting is good. This bad boy is available as a special at about eleven bucks but supplies are limited, so make sure to hit it up before its gone. The Daily Dish is in Friedrichshain! Go Eat That Now!!!

Lausebengel, new gastropub knocked up over in Kreuzberg is due for an imminent debut. The dining room and location looks to finished and ready for the rest of the summer season. The new gastropub which will aim at being more of a craft brew joint with accompanying Berlin style stewed cuisine has been knocked up for last few months. While the information on the shop has been sparse they have just started out setting up some social media channels and will undoubtedly start running some service in the next days/weeks. As for now we eagerly await the next announcements.
Coffee Circle, Wedding coffee roastery that took that northern kiez by storm when it opened two years back is rumoured to be moving onto their next venture. The word on the street is that the decade old coffee purveyors are working on a new coffee shop in the direct vicinity of their roastery. Could this be a change in direction for Wedding gastronomy/cafe culture? Could one actually develop? We have been waiting for the Wedding gastronomy renaissance, or even just naissance since the fall of the wall, and perhaps this will be an important step in that direction. Not much intel is available on the new shop at the moment, but Mr. Eatler will keep you abreast.
The Daily Dish is in over at Neukölln’s recently awarded top pizza restaurant Gazzo Pizza. The pizza shop, fondly named after the golden hearted mafioso character from the legendary Rocky series, has been winning die hard fans with their sour dough pizza stylings. However for today’s dish it is not the savoury tooth that has gotten Mr. Eatler’s attention. It is rather the sweet tooth that is the object of today’s Daily Dish, The Buffalo Milk Soft Serve Ice Cream. In this heat there is no reason to count calories because you are going to be getting rid of them just by being alive. This unique dish comes either with poached pear crumble, but for a really interesting experience, go with the Olive Oil and Sea Salt topping. This bad boy is up for grabs at around five bucks a pop, so you conceivably could, and should try both versions. The Daily Dish is in Neukölln! Go Eat That Now!
