A short sign of life from my side. The days just fly by again. I had a very nice weekend in Berlin. Meanwhile I am already 3 weekends in a row in Berlin, which is really a lot for me. I had planned to visit a friend in Basel on the weekend, but I preferred to postpone it to a warmer one in summer. There was a bit of holiday flair on Sunday at Wannsee – Tiefernsee and Jungfernsee. We briefly walked over to Potsdam (I didn’t have on my screen that it was so close!). Potsdam is still on my list and will soon be checked off.

Now I have to go to work again. You will soon read from me again.

Chotto – a name that sounds simple for the first time, but is ambiguous in Japanese depending on the pronunciation. “Chotto ちょっと” means “small” or “much”. The meaning of a word cannot be more contradictory. But exactly this ambiguity is it, which the newly opened Japanese restaurant Chotto on the Kollwitzstraße in Prenzlauer Berg would like to mediate. A restaurant that serves small Izakaya style dishes for sharing, but also larger dishes such as ramen soups or sushi plates. A restaurant for large and small (the children’s menu is sweet as sugar and would have loved to order the Ramen Hello Kitty).

Restaurant in Berlin
Chotto From old to new

My dear friend Andrea of Two Foodies Eating has once again managed to implement a great restaurant concept. It proves that it is possible with a certain effort to renovate a restaurant in a more sustainable way. She emphasized the old character with little (or no) effort – she removed the plaster to make the existing masonry visible, had the floors and tables sanded down instead of being thrown away or ripped out. In my opinion, the interior harmonizes very well and conveys a beautiful Japanese flair.

  • An interior highlight is also the toilet, which is completely covered with Japanese mangas of a collector. A very cool idea!

FOOD & DRINKS

But let’s get to the much more important part – the food! On Andrea’s recommendation we ordered a few selected dishes. The menu consists of a selection of ramen, sushi and Izakaya dishes. The weather was nice and cool, so we had a great appetite for a ramen soup.

  • All dishes are available as gluten-free and vegan options!
the famous “Chotto Fries”

Of the Izakaya dishes we only ordered one because we were more interested in Sushi and ramen or Udon. But thefamosen Chotto Frittes with Matcha sauce, Shiso Mayo and beef (5,00€) we could not miss. A very solid, but tasty starter.

Tokyo-Laksa Ramensuppe

Andreas big recommendation was among other things the Tokyo-Laksa Ramen soup with a big Ebi, Japanese curry, coconut milk and coriander (13,90€). The soup was mega delicious and had an unfamiliar Thai influence, which however harmonized super. I ordered a Vegan Spicy Tan Tan Ramen soup (10,00€) where I didn’t miss the meat at all. The taste was very good. Amandine tried the Yaki Udon Entrecôte with Stir-Fry Udon noodles with beef and vegetables (14,40€). We were all three times in Japan and found it super tasty.

Stir-Fry Udon Entrecôte

The sushi selection was just as good. Meanwhile Unagi Nigiri belong to my favorites, so I order them always à la carte. We also order the Special Rainbow Rolls (13,50€), the Shinjuku Rolls with baby asparagus, avocado and cucumber (9,90€), flamed salmon Maki (2,70€/piece). The sushi was really very good. I’m more of a fan of the classic varieties, but the baby asparagus in the Shinjuku Rolls was super tasty and tasted nice fresh.

How quickly one can fall in love with a place, I felt summer, when I flew to the Spanish island for the 2nd time. That was last summer in hot August. A long weekend with friends. The best weekend of the last year. And this should not have been the last time. March was disgustingly cold in Germany again and so I fled for a week to Mallorca in the low season.

MALLORCA in the low season

Mallorca is particularly popular in the low season. Most holidaymakers fly to the island for a long weekend. They have been there several times and you can feel this calmness. They know the island, the city Palma, the people. Meanwhile I also find it very nice to return to a place and to get to know it all the better.

We were very lucky with the weather – 17-20°C and one week of sunshine in March. The temperatures are pleasant, the cities are not crowded. The island is a paradise for racing cyclists and other sporting activities. A holiday from Wednesday evening to Monday was planned. At short notice I found a Wahnsinns-8€- Flug-Deal, so the flight tickets were changed immediately.

  • Tip numero uno: Flights during the week are particularly cheap in the low season. We have paid about 80€ for our flight there and back.
stroll through Santa Catalina in Palma Cute restaurants & cafés in Santa Catalina
Begin your stay with some wine & tapas at MERCADO DE SANTA CATALINA!

Santa Catalina is a popular neighborhood of Palma. There are countless bars and restaurants. A highlight is always the visit of the market hall of Santa Catalina. A culinary meeting place for locals and tourists. After the late arrival the day before I was looking forward to the first shopping in the market hall. Here one or the other Mallorquiner stands already at 9 o’clock in the morning at the bar counter and drinks the first “Rojo”. On the market hall one can eat particularly well tapas and fish. The prices of the market hall are moderate.

  • I can highly recommend the bar/stand immediately to the left of the entrance to the north entrance.
A relaxed AFTERNOON IN PALMA
& the sunset at the marina

From Santa Catalina one walks relaxed along the promenade into the old town of Palma. The cathedral of Palma is always a highlight. In the city centre you will find many hotel bars with beautiful terraces.

Happy weekend! A weekend without poached eggs is very rare for me. A few years ago, when I was visiting Berlin, I celebrated all the breakfast places very much. There I ordered always poached eggs in all variations. But if we met at 11-12 for breakfast or brunch, I’d already died 100 hunger deaths on the way there. I am a morning person who loves to eat first thing in the morning. Only then do I get my necessary energy. Sometimes I wake up because I’m just hungry. My environment always laughs about that dead when I mention it. Long story short: I rather have breakfast at home now.

I can do poached eggs in all sorts of variations. I currently love the asparagus variations, so there is a little inspiration for a quick spring breakfast today. You stew shallots and green asparagus with butter on medium heat. You can also add cherry tomatoes, which also taste great.

POACHED EGGS – how to!

After years of experience, poaching eggs works best for me when the water is lightly boiled but not bubbling. Lower the temperature to a low temperature. Then beat two eggs into a large soup spoon.

  • Yes, it also works to poach two eggs at once. The other day I managed to do four eggs at once. That’s of course handy that the second person doesn’t have to wait for their food.

I make a strudel into the water with a spoon and let the eggs slowly plop into the water. I then always set the timer to 5 minutes, which is a bit individual depending on the stove. Et voilà. It’s that simple.

REZEPT
  • Two halves wholemeal bread or breakfast muffins
  • cream cheese
  • avocado
  • 2 – 4 eggs
  • green asparagus
  • shallots
  • also very tasty with glazed tomatoes
  • some chili powder and fleur de sel
A wonderful weekend!

My Easter in South Tyrol was very beautiful, but as always much too short. This year was super relaxed. The weather was fantastic and I spent most of the time at home in the sun. After a nice Easter Sunday with the family I met Bastian for breakfast in Kaltern in Überetsch. We wanted to visit our friend in The Wanda | 12 suites & breakfast for so long. Said done.

DAS WANDA – BREAKFAST ON THE SUN RACE
not only for house guests

The breakfast trend has also spread to South Tyrol for a few years now. I can only understand it too well, because what could be better than having breakfast or a brunch outdoors 350 sunny days a year?

The Wanda offers a fix breakfast menu which consist of an étagère with yoghurt and muesli, cheese and meat cold cuts, as well as fresh fruit. Fresh egg dishes and a Kaiserschmarren are a must and included in the breakfast set. Freshly squeezed juice and coffee are also included.

  • The breakfast can be ordered after registration for 28€ including a hot drink and a glass of Prosecco.

“How would I describe it…
a bit like at home with mom, but it also has something of the gourmet menu in your favourite restaurant…
For a change, breakfast begins at your table, no crowds at the morning buffet, no back of chairs – take a seat, be served and enjoy…”

We spent a few hours in the sun. The Design Bed & Breakfast The Wanda opens the sun terrace from 11:00 o’clock also for external guests. An aperitif at 17:00 – 18:00 is highly recommended.

On this occasion we also had a look at the rooms of the Designhotel…

Modern comfort in the suites

One of the highlights of the house is the spa area with a view of the surrounding wineries. Oh, I understand all too well why South Tyrol attracts so many holidaymakers.

A fast late hour outfit post today. The days are just passing me by. At the moment I usually come home around 19-20:00 o’clock. Afterwards I lack the energy and the desire to sit at the computer again. But this will pass soon, if I have found back in my used routine. There’s just the sport thing that I put on ice for the first time in the last two months.

Today I show you a casual spring look with this beautiful lace blouse combined with different dark green tones. The past weeks it was always so warm in Berlin that a leather jacket was completely sufficient. I’m already looking forward to the warm days again, after the crazy April is over again. Oh yes – next week is already Easter! Insanity… With that the fasting time would be over and my #40TagePlastikFasten – Challenge. A final feedback will follow. Enjoy your evening!

The Golden Bun by Vicky - 1M ago

Translated with online translator

“Skin recovery was bitterly necessary! Recently I told you about my not working day care. Thereupon I got the tip from one of my friends (my beauty expert of confidence) that I use quite a potpourri of ingredients. In addition, many products contained perfumes that I can’t handle very well anyway. This should change with the care of Paula’s Choice. I showed you the products on Instagram some time ago.

In today’s article I not only tell you about my new care routine, but also about the effect of fruit acid peelings, as well as the difference between a synthetic and mineral UV filter. A little more beauty knowledge can never hurt!

Truth in Beauty – PAULA’S CHOICE

Paula’s Choice was founded in 1994 by Paula Begoun. She suffered especially from acne and eczema, but her skin care products only worsened her concern. This led her to question the ingredients of her skin care products. She started to intensively deal with the ingredients.

  • With horror she found out that she regularly applied dangerous ingredients such as acetone (!!).

Paula Begoun learned which ingredients have which effects. She worked in the cosmetics department of a department store. There she caused excitement, because she refused to sell in her eyes ineffective anti-aging products. Her honesty went to the press. Several appearances in over 20 bestselling books, public appearances and more followed. After ten years she launched her own beauty line, Paula’s Choice.

For the right choice of the care lines there is online the Paula’s Choice “Routine Finder” or one can be advised in addition personally by telephone. I made use of the latter. After a very informative conversation the Skin Recovery – line of Paula’s Choice was recommended according to my skin type.

My new grooming routine

I never use cleaning products in the morning and do not deviate from this routine even with the new products. So at the moment my day starts only with and after the Skin Recovery Day Cream LSF 30 (34€ / 60ml).

In the evening I clean my face with the Skin Recovery cleanser – (23€ / 237ml), followed by the Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling (33€ / 100ml). In the evening the night care Skin Recovery Moisturizing Cream (31€ / 60ml) provides sufficient moisture.

Daily care with SPF 30 UVA & UVB

For me personally it was very important to use finite a day care with sun protection factor (best not only UV-A, but also UV-B). My skin is super susceptible to redness and sunlight anyway. I am very satisfied with the day care with LSF 30 from Paula’s Choice.

Were you aware that sun protection factors can be divided into a mineral or synthetic UV filter?

The Skin Recovery Day Care contains natural mineral solar filters Titanium Dioxide. These act like small mirrors that reflect the UV radiation, making the filter work immediately. This is especially beneficial for sensitive skin.

synthetic UV filters, such as homos lettuce or avobenzone, absorb UV radiation into the skin. They work best when left to work for at least 20 minutes.

Paula’s Choice product lines contain both mineral and synthetic UV filters. You can find more information here.

Who of you uses a day care with LSF?

Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling

I came across Fruit acid peelings over and over again Instagram and honestly had no idea how they work. There are two types of fruit acid peelings:

    • Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid (short AHA)
      and
    • Beta-hydroxy acid (short BHA)

I never use cleaning products in the morning and do not deviate from this routine even with the new products.
So at the moment my day starts only with and after the Skin Recovery Day Cream LSF 30 (34€ / 60ml). In the evening I clean my face with the Skin Recovery facial cleaner – (23€ / 237ml), followed by the Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling (33€ / 100ml).

In the evening I clean my face with the Skin Recovery facial cleaner – (23€ / 237ml), followed by the Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Peeling (33€ / 100ml). In the evening the night care Skin Recovery Moisturizing Cream (31€ / 60ml) provides sufficient moisture.

      • Alpha-Hydroxy-Acid (short AHA)
        and
      • Beta-hydroxy acid (short BHA)

AHA-peelings and BHA-peelings clean the sebaceous pores from the inside. In addition, dead skin cells remove and renew the skin surface. All this leads to a refined facial appearance.

The consistency of Skin Perfecting AHA Gel Peelings is a very light gel. When applied, it penetrates quickly into the skin and does not leave a sticky feeling. The gel peeling is left to act on the skin and is not washed off afterwards. I had also heard that fruit acid peelings can react differently to the skin. I had no initial problems with the application. However, the gel should not be applied to the eye area. From Reflex, as with the application of a serum, I applied it nevertheless in the eye area. Result: yes it burns, but also goes away again. As you know, you learn from mistakes. In the initial phase I applied AHA-Gel only 1x in the evening, meanwhile I apply it 2x daily.

Juliet Rose Bar & Restaurant – There has been quite a bit happening in Munich over the past few months. During my last visit I managed to test a lot of new restaurants. Some of them are still on the list, which I will check next time.

At the end of my restaurant visits (after Wabi Sabi Shibui, Mozzamo and Lilli P) I met for breakfast with my oldest blogger friends Irina, Conny and Phil in the new Juliet Rose Bar in the City Hilton in Haidhausen.

Restaurant in Berlin
Juliet Rose Bar & Restaurant

The term “hotel bar” is a hair-raiser for one or the other, because one always associates it with exaggeratedly expensive cocktails and club sandwiches that are written in the room. Not so in the Juliet Rose Bar, which is anything but “just” a hotel bar and presents itself with elegant and high-quality restaurant architecture.

Juliet Rose Bar & Restaurant
FOOD & DRINKS: “Etashare”

What many still don’t know is that the Juliet Rose Bar & Restaurant has a very tasty breakfast menu. I can’t even hear the word “caring is sharing” and “we just put everything in the middle” anymore. Etashare – the derivation from the French “Etagere” and “Share” is very successful. At the weekend Juliet Rose brings back the classic breakfast Etagerees.

For 19€ you can choose from different categories, “Butter & Spreads”, “Sweets & Honey”, “Organic eggs & add-ons” and many more to create your own “Etashare”. The staff pointed out to us very honestly and courteously that one etashare was perfectly sufficient for two people. So it was. We ordered a colorful mix of four and were very happy with the choice.

Juliet Rose Bar & Restaurant
RÉSUMÉ

I found our visit to the Juliet Rose Bar very pleasant. The bar was well frequented, but not crowded. However, we had to wait relatively long for our etashares, which in my opinion don’t need so much preparation time. But all in all I think the location is super nice. The Juliet Rose is lovingly furnished and I like to come in the evening for a drink, because these should be especially good here.
