On weekends calories don’t count.
Last weekend did no good to my waistline, let me tell you. Great that I ditched the scale long time ago, otherwise I might have had an unpleasant surprise on Monday morning. Or maybe not, because anywhere I went this weekend, I rode my bike. Never trust google maps when riding an old lady bike that was built before the wall… Always add at least 20 minutes to the calculated driving time. I want to apologize to all my friends who were very patient with me, while I was still figuring that out. They were sitting and waiting at cafés for me or riding infront of me, trying to not fall asleep on their sportive fixies. I appreciate your imperturbable patience guys. One that deserves appreciation is my friend Connie. Constanze, whom I met not so long ago via Instagram, doesn´t lose her temper, when I “take over” the street on sluggish pace and with lots of noise. Yeah, I like when people turn to look at me. Duuuuh. Also Connie deserves applause for having the idea to go for some vegan treats that weekend. My taste buds are still dancing samba just remembering it now.
Where we went? Ladies and Gentlemen embrace yourself:
Kontor Eismanufaktur Berlin – an all vegan ice cream shop.
Let the words melt in your mouth like Caramel Popcorn ice cream. Animal – (cruelty) free and de-la-la-licious beyond words.
I scream … for VEGAN ice cream
The variety of flavors is huge and silences every first-timer walking into the shop. No mediocre stuff in here. Kontor goes for fancy creations like Coconut Apricot, White Chocolate Raspberry, Cinnamon Oatmeal and Crazy Peanut. Only writing down these words now, my heart beats faster.
– Listen to me, guess I caught the Nice Cream Fever.
I walked in and thought: SHIT. Now I am living in the vegan mecca Berlin for months, and I only come here a couple of weeks before I take off again?! How am I ever going to make it through all 50 sorts of vegan ice cream ?!?! … challenge excepted… I started off with Matcha and Rice Pudding ice cream – you heard right! Rice. Pudding. With little pieces of raspberries. Oh my.
Do yourself the favor and check this out when you are in town. Kontor Eismanufaktur Berlin. They currently have two locations: One in Prenzlauer Berg and one in Mitte. And don´t hesitate to pay them a visit during winter time. My flatmate says, during the cold months their creations are even richer and more spectacular than you could imagine.
