Outside of the city, Berlin Reified tracks down dosas in Maryland strip malls, cheese makers in the Outer Hebrides, cider presses in Brandenburg, crab apple gratin in Stockholm, and sabich in Tel Aviv.
Berlin Reified is one life among many. Berlin Reified gathers the moments when a passion for food throws the world into sharp relief. Above all, it’s a labor of love: Enjoy.

“Since my return to this city, I’ve enjoyed Berlin Reified, a labour of love by the delightful long-term expat Sylee Gore. In a kind of homage to the city, Gore celebrates the cafés, restaurants, markets and edibles (as well as design and handcrafts). In her Kitchen Notes she makes Sunday morning shortbread, gooseberry fool and Bärlauch (wild garlic) ricotta fritters. Like all the best blogs it's personal and personable, and a joy to explore and read.”
Berliner Zeitung on Berlin blogs
“Since 2006, Gore has been feasting her way through Berlin. Alongside her interest in design and photography, her focus is on food—good food. In the guide, she lists her recommended restaurants, cafes, patisseries, and shops alphabetically, with maps and photos. Her personal reports on the location, audience, and food make this guide well worth reading.”
