If you’ve lived in Berlin or even just visited briefly, you know all about Markthalle Neun. During the week and on Saturdays they sell ready-to-eat delicacies and regional produce. On Thursday evenings they have street food, and once a month or so they have themed Breakfast Markets. This weekend, the theme was Japanese.
I’m going to be honest. I just called this post ‘better bagels’ so that everyone knows that my bagels are better than Joram‘s . I’m petty like that.
This year, I became obsessed with the idea of making things for Christmas. You’ve seen the traditional cookies, but it extended beyond that.
I’m pretty excited that this year I finally managed to get together the ingredients and equipment to make my family’s traditional Christmas cookies.

These delicious, sweet, perfectly-fried-fluffed-and-filled delicacies, pronounced more like ‘pOnchki’ than ‘pac-see’, are Poland’s version of a jam-filled doughnut (or Berliner).

So you know that we moved from the one-restaurant-town of Potsdam to the too-many-restaurants-city of Berlin. And of course, the very heavy task of trying allthefoods! has fallen upon us.
A few months ago, one of our pals, Asdrubal, invited us to his place to eat Mexican. I don’t think I posted any photos back then- probably because the food disappeared so quickly that I didn’t have the chance. It was so good, in fact, that we begged him to cook for us one more time- but this time, to show us the ways of the Old Country.
