Street Food Thursday Meets Berlinale









Oh, but it's been heaven to have the Street Food Thursday outpost save me from the gastronomic wasteland that is Potsdamer Platz. (Won't you come back soon, for instance to that vast empty space in front of Kulturforum?) There's an Abschiedsjause (closing party doesn't have the same ring, but there'll be a live band and more) from mid-day onwards tomorrow.

Until February 16th, with handmade ramen noodles by Mr. Susan, fish and shrimp on crisp greens by Glut und Späne, pulled pork sandwiches by Big Stuff Smoked BBQ, spicy corn chowder by Maria Maria Arepas, cheese spaetzle by Heisser Hobel, and Andraschko coffee and Sironi bakes by Café 9.


Ha! I've had the same idea - why not have streetfood Thursdays at the Kulturforum?!? It would solve so many problems that the museums there have, and wouldn't it be just awesome to first have great food and then stroll around the Gemäldegalerie? Someone should have proposed a collaboration when the museums and all other involved parties recently had a discussion about the future of the Kulturforum!

I didn't get to try the trucks and admit I was a little bemused at how much press they got. "Can you imagine someone reporting on, say, knish and pretzel carts near the Tribeca film festival? It's only because Berlin's laws make food trucks an exception that this is considered news," I thought. However, your photos and report have changed my mind and leave me regretting that I didn't make it to Potsdamer Platz and hoping the trucks will reappear in another outdoor venue.

Wow! Well now everyone will move to Berlin if that's what they think the food in Potsdamer platz tastes like... : )

I totally agree. What a joy to have some decent food near Potsdamer Platz. The spaetzle I had there were really fantastic. If only they could do something similar (pop up shops, cafes, etc.) in the Arkaden rather than let it slowly die as all the shops move to the new mall on Leipziger Str. But let's face it, that's never going to happen...
