Accordion Playing Unicorn and Other European Silliness

Traveling is exhausting!  Yesterday I flew Air Berlin from Budapest back to Berlin, an hour flight that took 8 hours to complete door to door.

It’s great to be back in Berlin, by far my favorite city of the ones I visited this trip and just one of my favorite cities in general (which regular readers already know).  I’m running out to a Thai food festival in a park somewhere in Charlottenburg and have tons to write about, however, for right now I have some Sunday silliness most of it not food related that I hope will cheer your day up.

The above video is kind of awkward because I didn’t want to video him without making a donation and trying to do both proved challenging.IMG_3450 Somehow funnier in German.IMG_3530This is sold like soda here and I totally approve of the idea! Anyone seen it in North America?IMG_3585Kind of mean looking for a big pink bunny.IMG_3592Lots of political graffiti an, street art and stickers all over (well except in Budapest which…is another story). I just think Putin looks really great with lashes.IMG_3350WTF?


About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:
