Best carrot cake you’ll find Berlin at Roamers

I have to admit the cake here shares the first place with the wedding cake I had at the beginning of the year but in terms of availibilty Roamers is the place to go! For 5,00 € it’s not the cheapest but worth the money to try it once. I would even go as far as to treat myself to it if if it was my birthday.

Coincidently when I came here it was indeed one day before my birthday so I shared it with two of my friends. We were on a food hopping tour on that day so eating to much at one place wasn’t an option anyway. Read more about another stop from my food hopping tour here. Roamers was our first station on the food tour btw.

If you are into the brunch scene of Berlin then sooner or later you will stumble upon Roamers. Roamers is a small lovely californian cafe at Hermanplatz, Berlin.

It is always full of people but we managed to get a place when we came in at around 4pm. You should expect to have to wait though wheather it is to get a table or to get your food order.

As you probably might have guessed from the title and photos we ordered the carrot cake. Not only does it looks but also tastes exquisite. Roamer’s takes it up a notch with their food presentation. Can someone get me the recipe please?! Because the cake was way too good to be true. Honestly, it was absolutely impeccable!

Important to note is, that the offered cakes change daily so no guarantee you’ll get the carrot cake when you come. but I am sure that all the food here is delicious.

Hipster vibe is high here if I might say so (not meant in a bad way). The interior is decorated with lots of succulents and cacteens, combined with wooden elements it gives of a rustic vibe for a cozy atmosphare.

The slice of cake we got easily transitions into the interior here. You really don’t have to put any effort into taking photos because the food and interior is doing all the work. A definite plus to all the insta foodies out there!

I love the overall presentation of this place! Without the groupon code the food is expensive though.

Birthday Burger Tower at Lilly Burger, Berlin

Background:

This year was the first year I celebrated the night into my birthday. I usually celebrate the whole day on my actual birthday but since I was leaving for Sweden soon this was also a very spontaneous farewell day.

I often organize food hopping tours for my friends where we spend the day hopping from restaurant/coffee shops and so on. As always my birthday serves as a good reason to do that as well xD This year started at 3pm with a light snack, since it was the middle of the week and some of us were working. I will write more about the other food stations in a later post but let’s jump to our last stop:

Our last stop was at Lily burger which is open until 2AM. So it served perfectly as the final grand food destination on my tour.

At Lily Burger you can get unusual burger creations using organic meat, as well as variations with tofu for vegetarians and vegans. It only took one glance at the ginormous burgers and massive plates of curly fries for me to decide that visiting Lily Burger was my new life mission!

The menu is absolutely massive and the burgers range from €8 to €60 each!!! The King Kong Burger measures a whole 30cm and is one of the thickest in the city. They have sides like nuggets, curly fries etc. And you can get waffles, sandwiches and pasta as well. Even deep fried vegan candy bars for dessert.

Our Order: King Kong Burger Tower

Deliciously unhealthy

Price: 39,90 €

Because we just had dinner at another restaurant some were full already and the girls decided to settle on a medium burger towers (King Kong) while the boys had their own burgers. I swore to myself to get the 10xBurger tower the next time I was back in Berlin though.

Interior 

Special club-like atmosphere, with graffity at the walls and loud music and low lighting. It’s a rather funky modern hip-hop and rap dominated place. 

We sat outside and  had an incredible service. We had a very kind waiter who’s explained us every ingredient we weren’t able to understand (the menu is in german only). Our waiter came frequently and was funny and entertaining! All of us liked him! And when it was midnight they surprised me with a birthday waffle and drinks decorated with sparklers!!

Final Thoughts

Lily Burger serves large portions and offers a vast array of options to suit both vegans and meat eaters. The burgers are so big and you can get so many different toppings!

Probably one of the best burgers I’ve had!
They’re huge and they are a little bit more expensive than say Burgermeister but definitely bigger, more diverse, and definitely worth the price! They have so many options for burgers and also vegan burgers available as well.

Overall- a great experience, gotta come back for some more goodies from their awesome menu.

Banh Bao Burger at Creasian Restaurant, Berlin

Banh Bao is love

I am completely smitten by the overall presentation of Creasian! I love the interior, , the ambience, the mangas displayed and how the Bao Burgers look.

What are Bao Burgers?

Bao Burger are a fusion between the Vietnamese Bánh Bao and a burger. Bánh Bao are Vietnamese buns made out of sweet dough for the outer shell. Nestled at the center of their tender envelope, a salty filling (traditionally pork and veggies) or sweet (red beans or black sesame for example) are steamed and cooked. And to increase the pleasure, it is highly recommended to eat them with your hands.

In Vietnam Banh Bao is eaten for breakfast. The bun is steamed before eaten. Banh Bao is also one of the 10 things you should definitely try when you are in Vietnam! I love these white plump mouthfuls! The slightly sweet bun fits – unlike you would expect – really excellent with the hearty and spicy meat stuffing. Tell me if you want my family’s recipe!

Our Order

I don’t think I need to write much actually since the pictures speak for themselves in my opinion. Let me try to form some sentences though:

A few weeks ago I went to Creasia since I had a groupon code (praise groupon btw. I love the page) for two Banh Bao Burger. The location is easily accesable, lying in the heart of Berlin at Hackerscher Markt. I was quiete excited to see the interior I’ve admired from photos. And I was not dissapointed: This restaurant is beautiful!

We had the classic banh bao burger and the vegan version with seitan. Our order came fast. The food is fresh and –oh my, the burger looked so good on its own already but with the interior in the background everything blended together and created a perfect scene. It results in this modern but also traditionall and authentic tranquil scene you can see on the photos.

My vegan burger was good, but a tad bit too sweet for me. Furthermore, the banh bao bun was hard to cut through with the knife. Not sure if the knife or the bread is the culprit here.

UNICORN WEEKEND AT CUPCAKELADEN, BERLIN

MAGICAL UNICORN EXPERIENCE?​

In summer @cupcakeladen held a unicorn weekend were they offered unicorn freakshakes (10€) and cupcakes (4€). The experience was rather dissapointing so I’ll start with the positive points: We chose the unicorn freakshake and the unicorn cupcake. Unlike my initial fear the shake was not a sugary calorie bomb full with artificial sweetener but a tasty rather natural shake out of milk and blueberries. The portion was quiete big and you’ll be filled after finishing it. The cupcake was a perfect balance of dark chocolate brownie and sweet frosting. The staff was in a good mood and nice.

Was it magical though?

1. Can you spot what’s missing on the freakshake? The mashmallow ears! This might sound ridiculous but when I pay 10€ for a unicorn shake I expect it to look like the shake the shop promotes. I was promised a unicorn freakshake with proper ears! I might have gotten some had I realised it sooner but I was nearly done and it was simply dissapointing.

2. Guess what else was missing its ears? The 4€ cupcakes 🙁 so we were left with 2 unicorn horns which were only sprayed golden on one side and made it look cheap. The cupcakes looked even weirder without the ears than the shake. Unfortunately the golden horns tasted awfully like chemical plastic so we left them on the plate.

3. I get that the staff decided to use plastic cups since the onrush was not predictable. I still till didn’t like the look. The other regular freakshakes (9,50€) did not only look better in their mason jars, they also offered more ingredients for their money (mini cupcakes..). The addiontal 0,50€ for the unicorn shake wasn’t justified.

All in all this experience and the unicorn items were not worth their prices. Tastewise I don’t have anything to argue about (exceprt for the horns). Both were delicious, the cupcake even more so. It would have been ok for me if I came for the cupcakes but I came for a magical unicorn experience which unfortunately I didn’t get.

UPDATE

Cupcakeladen reached out to me to apologize :D! They offered me 2 unicorn cupcakes, this time with ears and I gladly accepted! Unfortunately my phone was stolen so I can’t provide you with a picture but let me assure you that the marshmallow definitively made it look like unicorns this time!

I would come for the cupcakes. The freakshakes are expensive though and I would go for the other offered freakshakes rather than the unicorn one next time.
