CANDY ON BONE — THE NEW HOME OF IRRESISTIBLE DELICACIES

CANDY ON BONE — THE NEW HOME OF IRRESISTIBLE DELICACIES

Part deli, part addictive cookery shop, Candy on Bonechannels both the culinary expertise of sister restaurant Katz Orange and the principles of sustainability inherent to its founders at Contemporary Food Lab. The combination is enchanting; from sandwiches filled with Katz Orange’s famous slow-roasted pork to pearl barley, parsley and pear salad, the brightly lit counter offers simple yet immaculately prepared dishes alongside a selection of fresh meats and cheeses. Next door, food products and kitchen essentials are arranged in a kaleidoscope of flavors and colors; there’s Nordur liquorice salt from Iceland, elegantly packaged spices from Pfeffersack und Soehne, Koral dry gin and many more delights from independent and ethical manufacturers. Dotted around the store are also Candy on Bone’s own range of granolas, nuts and sauces, including our favourite: Bacon Jam Chutney. It’s a true space of devotion to gastronomy, and it’s definitely worth a visit during your next canal-side stroll. (Text: Antonia Harris / Photo: (top, left) David Gauffin)

KÜCÜK ISTANBUL BARBERS: CLASSIC SHAVES FOR GENTLEMEN

KÜCÜK ISTANBUL BARBERS: CLASSIC SHAVES FOR GENTLEMEN

True specialists for beard trimming are always a joy to find, so if you fancy being properly taken care of then we suggest heading to brothers Hussein and Raed Seif, in their barbershop on Flughafenstrasse. Since 1996, they have not only been trimming, shaving and cutting hair, but have catered to all beard styling demands using traditional barbershop methods. In the recent years, the popular renaissance of the hipster beard has attracted flocks of customers to the master hands of these sleek and professional barbers. When Hussein explains the five different ways of shaving that they offer, it’s hard to choose which one sounds best, but it’s clear that their 40s and 50s inspired styles continue to be a unique selling point for this establishment. You can also receive as much pampering as you desire; they offer a specialized post-shave massage technique and have their own beard-care range with wax, balsam and oil. To top it all off, they recently produced an ornate photo book entitled “Old School Barber” which is available to browse and order in store. (Text: Ferdinand Hamsch / Photo: Jens Book)

CAROLINE STEPHENSON SUGGESTS: THE BREAD STATION

CAROLINE STEPHENSON SUGGESTS: THE BREAD STATION

It could be argued that Kreuzkölln was once something of a dead spot for good, simple, freshly baked bread, but this all changed with the opening of The Bread Station. The bakery-cum-café was opened in November 2015 by Danish bread-connoisseur Magnus Grubbe, who is dedicated to using traditional Nordic methods in order to introduce Berliners to delicious bread. Creating the bakery itself was a true labor of love, with Magnus spending months installing a fully functional corn mill, complete with a grinding stone, a giant dough mixer, multiple baking ovens and a state-of-the-art coffee machine. Every loaf is freshly prepared and lovingly baked on the premises, using organic ingredients, and the atmosphere is warm and enticingly fragrant! The bread itself comes in an array of shapes and grains, but you’ll find no typical German Brötchen here – only huge, crusty-on-the outside, fluffy-on-the-inside loaves. The bakers put the first batch in the oven at six in the morning, meaning a steady stream of locals are drawn in by the irresistible smell of fresh loaves as the doors open one hour later. There’s also a mouthwatering selection of fresh croissants, cinnamon rolls and the best raspberry slices in the city!

HABIBI INTERIORS — TRADITIONAL MOROCCAN CRAFTSMANSHIP

Keeping the story of One Thousand and One Nights alive was the inspiration behind Habibi Interiors. Integrating traditional Moroccan decor with contemporary design, they have created a beautiful space to show their hand-cut, crafted and designed tiles and mosaics. For 15 years, owner Alexander Urban has been running his studios in London, but in 2015 he finally brought his business to Berlin’s district of Schöneberg. He aims to keep Moroccan identity current, whilst developing and protecting the expertise of his trade. Upon entering the showroom, you can choose from a huge array of tiles and mosaics, creating your personal Moroccan dream design by combining your favorite patterns, colors and ornamentation. There are bright, warm and bold pallets alongside traditional blue and white tiles, all of which can be easily combined due to their simplicity and uncomplicated beauty. Besides the tiles, there are also other interior details from Morocco, such as the light shades, metal fretwork and wooden Mucharabi oriental patterns. The art pieces, which have existed unchanged for centuries, have a distinct charm; suitable for decorating your home or your work space. (Text: Michaela Wölfel / Photo: Doreen Geyer)
