After lining up for at least 45 minutes at the Pergamon Museum without seeing anything, it was time to move on. Since we were near the Hackesche Höfe we were sure to find a place to warm up. Actually you can find that anywhere in Berlin. This city is full of great restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
So a short while later we sat down in Yo Soy, a tapas bar with delicious Majorcan wine. Just a few minutes later the drizzle increased to a downpour and we were glad to have found a dry haven. Of course once you order wine in a tapas bar you also order some tapas. They enhance the taste of the wine (and maybe the consumption of more wine as well).
I don’t know what happened but on this afternoon we never made it back to the Hotel Lindemann’s to change for the evening. Not that it was necessary because we had a reservation at The Bird, a very relaxed burger joint. Another great reservation (thanks Christina!!!) which was just perfect for us. The Bird is extremely popular as was noticeable by the crowd. And rightly so. We shared some chicken wings as a starter, the orange sauce on the picture was called ‘Napalm’ and had a fire bombing effect on my mouth. The burgers were huge, the meat delicious, only the mountain of fries was a bit much and too greasy.
Exactly two hours after our arrival we had to leave again. Pushed out into the cold Berlin night we took a cab and drove to the Neue Odessa Bar. Which turned out to be ok, not more not less. But it was definitely not a mood booster. We stayed for a drink and then went home. Who would have thought that we were already tired? Not a great picture but you might an impression.
