Bite Club: Brooklyn x Asian Night Market in Berlin

Oh my world! Brooklyn in Berlin City!!! When I first heard about this event I was totally crazy about it and yes, once again, I just had to attend this street food market-kind-of-thing! Reading the Facebook invitation it remined me a lot of the food booths at  Smorgasburg in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Back in the U.S. I have been to several food fairs like the Renegade Crafts Fair and the Great Googa Mooga Food Festival and I loved it so much. Yes, I know that there are not as many healthy options, but I'm such a foodie and always need to try out new things and creations of others. Maybe I will then transform those versions into healthier ones ;-)

Check out what I've tried at the opening party of the Bite Club on Friday night at Badeschiff Berlin. Brooklyn meets Asian Night market they are saying! :)
Arriving there early, it was already full of hungry people standing in line for food! We decided to split up and queue for two booths. 

As a starter we had the tacos from Taco Kween, two with meat and a vegetarian one. The pork meat of the ones with salsa was a bit dry, but still good, but the vegetarian one was much much better with the zucchini and cheese mixture. More Mexican food in Berlin, please ;-)

Our 'main dish' was the M&G's rib roll with their signature BBQ sauce. The roll is a hoagie roll, filled with slow-cooked rib meat, crème fraiche, their sauce, sliced pickles, onions and chips for some crunch. How it was? Meaty, crunchy, tasty, but not for every day. Definitely worth a taste!

For desert we've got the ice popsicles from Paletas Berlin out of a mobile freezer! My friend got the strawberry-prosecco and I had the cucumber-lemon flavour. I'd say: I want more and I love cucumber ice!!! Love the freshness of the mix between cucumber and lemon.

Check their Facebook-pages to see where they are selling and maybe you'll see me again at the next Bite Club-event in Berlin ;-) (In two weeks) From that day on they are trying to come up twice a month. Others would say: Why would you go there, they don't really offer healthy or 'fresh' foods like salad, furthermore it's just super crowded and hip. Yes, that is true but I just love eating and tasting new food, especially when small vendors create them and make a lot of effort to serve us new food inspirations and delicacies. And obviously a lot of people liked the idea since three food booths were sold out by 9pm although it started at 6pm and was planned to end by midnight. 

Happy eating! xx
