TUPAC: A CREATIVE TAKE ON LATIN AMERICAN CUISINE IN THE BERGMANNKIEZ

TUPAC: A CREATIVE TAKE ON LATIN AMERICAN CUISINE IN THE BERGMANNKIEZ

Want to see what Latin American cuisine offers beyond classic tacos and ceviche? Then Tupac is the right place for you. Founders, friends David Pollack-Destiny and Ariel Peralta, show how courage and creativity can be used to create something original from seemingly simple ingredients. Chef Ariel reinterprets the classics by going beyond convention, but this restaurant isn’t just about creative freedom in cooking; much emphasis is placed on the sourcing, quality and seasonality of ingredients. This care and creativity is fully realized in dishes like the spicy pimiento peppers with aromatic shiitake mushroom filling and the fresh asparagus coated in delicate melted manchego cheese and homemade guava marmalade. Spectacular cocktails are the perfect pairing for the dishes, and dessert is no less memorable: a homemade sweet potato doughnut with peanut praline and chipotle chili for a tasty interplay of sweet and spicy flavors. This is Latin American food like you’ve never had it. (Text: Lisa Staub / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)

Back for another edition of their Zora’s Daughter x Auguste Vintage Pop-up, Marie Wez (of Auguste Vintage) and Nella Beljan (of Zora’s Daughter) have brought together the best of ceramics, clothing, homewares and jewellery for three days of pop-up design and fashion. True to form, the selection features creations from near and far: from Berlin there’s potter Jérémy Bellina’s homewares, Kiki Dieterle’s rings and bracelets, ceramics by Good Clay Sunshine and unisex fashion from Studio Abeles. From further afield come resin jewellery and homewares from Australia-based Dinosaur Designs, pullovers from Galician designers Rus, sculpted pots from Greek artist Terps plus elegant fine-rib bodysuits hailing from Barcelona.

TEUFELSSEE WATERWORKS FOR IDYLLIC NATURE AND CITY HISTORY — RECOMMENDED BY MARIO GATZMAGA

TEUFELSSEE WATERWORKS FOR IDYLLIC NATURE AND CITY HISTORY — RECOMMENDED BY MARIO GATZMAGA

Say Grunewald and most people think of Teufelsberg’s spy station. But tucked away nearby are the Teufelssee Waterworks, built in 1872/73 to supply water to Charlottenburg. Repeatedly modernized and renamed, the facility remained in service until 1969. The impressive steam pump – Berlin’s oldest – can be visited, its once industrial surroundings now a green paradise. Situated by the Teufelssee lake, the 50m tall red chimney is visible from a distance and since 1985 the brick pumphouse below has been home to the Ökowerk Berlinnature conservation center. They not only preserve existing flora and fauna, but have created delightful gardens, ponds and orchards. Lessons in beekeeping and how to use wild herbs in cooking are also held here, while at the bistro a range of regional delights awaits: locally-sourced fruit juices, wholemeal cakes and organic ice cream. There’s really something for everyone here. (Text: Mario Gatzmaga / Photos: Savannah van der Niet)

ASI BERLIN: FINGERBOARD SHOP AND MINI PARK FOR SMALL-SCALE SKATING

ASI BERLIN: FINGERBOARD SHOP AND MINI PARK FOR SMALL-SCALE SKATING

Timo Kranz thought he was the only fingerboarder in the whole world when he started out with the sport after a skating accident left him in hospital. Exposed to the Berlin scene after moving here from his hometown Leimsfeld in 2002 (Berlin held the German championships in 2003), Timo saw there were no fingerboarding-focused skate stores and went on to open ASI Berlin in 2010. With fingerboarding kit as well as a smaller skating range, ASI (“alles schön in Berlin”) stocks the full range including boards, grip tape, trucks, house-made screen printed shirts, and concrete ramps cast in the basement. Whether you fingerboard to improve your skateboarding or just want to avoid bad weather, the space has two rooms with ramps to cruise, grind, trick, and tag your name. Passionate boarders come from all over to visit the miniature skateparks here and realise that, like Kranz, they’re not the only fingerboarders in the whole world.

KINK BAR & RESTAURANT: WORLDLY FLAVORS SERVED WITH EASYGOING ELEGANCE

KINK BAR & RESTAURANT: WORLDLY FLAVORS SERVED WITH EASYGOING ELEGANCE

The Gong Bath at the Feuerle Collection transports you into a world of sound, art and meditation. The venue is a gallery that brings together diverse sculptures and artworks in a silent bunker that brings you far from the bustle of the city without having to leave it. Come for the Gong Bath led by Green Yoga Kreuzberg’s Nora Schirmeier and you are gradually taken through the gallery’s underground rooms so your eyes can get used to the darkness. After introductory music from John Cage you are then taken into the art-filled exhibition room where you settle down on your yoga mat. Then, for 75 minutes, you enter a period of deep relaxation and inner peace, with the meditative sound of the gong as your companion. After the session closes you can take in the art, which includes both contemporary works and historic pieces from Southeast Asia. The Khmer sculptures are particularly impressive, gently bathed in light in contrast to the barren background of the dark bunker. Top tip: bring warm clothes to ensure a cozy time on your mat!
