Jamie and I came across Funk You on our first day in Berlin in this pretty jazzy looking shopping centre. We had just stuffed our face with Mexican food (we’d just arrived in Berlin and were absolutely starving, it wasn’t great to be honest but it was food) and really wanted something nice and fresh afterwards. Funk You serve juices, raw vegan cakes, sandwiches and salads. We ordered two juices and a raw cake to share. The juices I would say are more like smoothies, I had one with mango, pineapple, orange and spinach in it. It was good but nothing too exciting (I wish the fruit would’ve been more ripe). The raw cake was alright but not the best I’ve had. I know there are loads of incredible juice places in Berlin but this is the only one we managed to visit.
This place was Jamie’s and my favourite out of all the places we visited (healthy and non-healthy). We struggled first to find it because we didn’t realise it was part of Soho House (a hotel) so we walked past it. The Store Kitchen has an incredibly cool vibe and feels like a really hip café/lounge where people come to enjoy a healthy lunch or to work away on their laptop with a cup of coffee or juice. The food is incredible and so flavoursome and different. My pumpkin stew with toasted buckwheat was delicious!! Their matcha latte is the best one I’ve ever had. We shared a cold-pressed ginger juice as well and it was so gingery and refreshing. Love when people aren’t scared of using a lot of ginger. We could’ve sat there for hours just people watching. You need to go here!
The bowl is found really close to Warschauer Strasse underground station. Their location is a vegan destination, with a healthy grocery store, Veganz (which is kind of a takeout/café space) and a vegan shoe shop in the same building. The space is very chilled and as you probably can gather from their name, they specialise in bowls. Everything is vegan and they have salads, curries and lots of other deliciousness. We both ordered the beetroot falafel bowl and it was delicious! I can’t say no to falafel. It was served with a nice salad and a miso hummus (loved it). I only wish the portions were been bigger. In comparison to The Store Kitchen it was quite pricey but I think all their ingredients are organic, which can explain the price a bit more. We didn’t try anything else but they have loads of smoothies and hot drinks to choose from too.
