As we prepare our bodies for ice cream week, we look to Kiez ice cream spot Eisderix for a trusted scoop. After a spell running Tempelburger on Tempelhofer Feld, friends and foodies Philippe Schröder and Paul Kolek decided they wanted to start something else. So, in 2017, they teamed up with another friend and ice-cream-maker to open Eisderix, the name a play on Asterix and “de Rix”, which is French for “from Rix(dorf)”. The humble storefront makes everything out the back – from the ice cream itself down to each brownie chunk in the peanut butter brownie flavor. They have all the tastes you desire – from pecan maple syrup and pistachio to a coconut-based vegan-friendly lime – with the sorbet packing about 50 percent fruit for a refreshing bite. All these flavors can be taken away as home packs so you can (try to) make them last. For a caffeine kick, you can also turn your ice cream scoop into an affogato with a shot of coffee from adjoining cafe/bar Drei Flaschen, also run by the Eisderix team.
