Ever since we fell madly in love with the amazing Neighbourgoods Market at Old Biscuit Mill, Cape Town, we have been searching for an adequate substitute in good old Germany. After many enthusiastic recommendations of Street Food Thursday at Markthalle 9, Berlin Kreuzberg, we checked out the Breakfast Market today. Markthalle 9 is a historical indoor market that once accomodated around 300 market stands. Today, after laying idle for years, it gains new popularity as a market for regional and seasonal goods. Truth be told, Markthalle 9 can not quite keep up with the Cape Town original – which is probably caused by our invariable adoration of just everything in that city.
Nevertheless we spent a great sunday morning with the family there and ate our way along the various booths offering all kinds of brunch-suitable food. Starting with a couple of outstanding Flat Whites we decided to have slow cooked beef sautéed with cidre and some rosmary potatoes on the side. It was so good that everybody wanted to try a piece of the heavenly tender meat. Consequently, the plate was empty all too sudden – we HAD to buy a second serving!
To wrap things up, we finshed with Bircher Muesli, Natas and several other sweet treats.
