Berlin food meetups?

hongry_hippo Sep 1, 2010 01:30 PM


I don't know if this is the appropriate section for this post, but I looked around and couldn't find a more suitable category...

I'm wondering if anyone in Berlin is interested in meeting up for various food-oriented adventures -- whether it's trying new restaurants, visiting old favorites, venturing far for a particular specialty, or anything else food-related, really.

Maybe an activity group of this kind already exists, in which case I'd love to find out more about it. I've done the Berlin Dinner Club before, and it isn't exactly what I'm looking for. I'm hoping for something a little more casual, impromptu, and not entirely confined to restaurant dining.

I am totally food-obsessed, and I realized that, after living in Berlin for 1 1/2 years, I actually don't have any friends here who are also food-obsessed. Which means that I don't spend enough time doing what it is I enjoy doing most -- discovering new food and eating it.

Does this sound fun to anyone?

      A great start for you would be to read through the various threads on Berlin. There is a HUGE amount of information right at your finger tips. I'd frankly be surprised if you didn't find something you liked.

      This thread makes me want to cry. :(

        As someone who has tried this before, subsequently received an email from the mods informing that no planning related posts were to be made to organize the meeting, and that my post had been removed, I suggest you try qype.de, in the Berlin group. Many folks there speak English, there is a monthly meet-up at a resto that's been voted on, and you might well meet some people who want to get together more frequently.

        If I were still in Berlin, I would totally go out to eat with you '-)

          Hi linguafood,

          Thanks for the tip. I read your posts here and also check your blog from time to time, and I'd secretly hoped you'd reply to my post :)
          I didn't realize you weren't in Berlin anymore, though! Schade.

          But, I will check qype and hopefully meet some people there...

          Thanks again.
