Lunch in Prenzlauer Berg

May 30, 2018

Yesterday, Fiona, Peps and I went to Prenzlauer Berg to have lunch at Cat Tuong, another splendid Vietnamese restaurant in our beloved city. They only serve vegan dishes and they do it very very well.

We had seaweed salad and summer rolls as a starter, delicious and refreshing lemonade. Berlin is hot. Not just by its looks, also by its temperatures right now.

Kastanienallee is so beautiful in the Summer. Means chestnut alley.

See that jar with chili? We ate a lot of it. I love restaurants, which put effort into the summer rolls, look how beautiful these are.

As main, Fiona had a wonton soup and I went for the Buddha bowl. Delicious and fresh, I’m so happy about all the good food this city has to offer and it was great to be back at Cat Tuong, hadn’t been there since Johan used to work in Prenzlauer Berg a couple of years ago.

After lunch, Rihanna the dog came by to be taken care of by us the rest of the day and evening. I will show you later.

Summer is here for sure, I have a good feeling about this one. For each year living in Berlin, I have learned to deal with hotter temperatures. My flat is like a sauna and the best working solution I have come up with, is to fill the bathtub with cold water and take a dip once an hour. Do you have a good solution to share? Would love to hear!

    sounds and looks so delicious!

    since a dip in the tub is too much of an effort for me, I put a big bowl of cold water (on top of a towel) under my desk and tip my feet in all the time – regulates the body temperature perfectly on such hot days!

    I love a place that puts effort into their spring rolls too! a bunch of rice noodles, a piece of carrot, cuke and a single shrimp does not a spring roll make.
    i love them crammed with cilantro, mint, basil, red pepper, cucumber, tofu, shitakke mushroom, green papaya, mango, watercress, cabbage, pickled radish,, etc.

    stay cool!
