One of the advantages of living in Berlin is that there are lots of parties, events and other such cool/hip things to attend. You could literally spend every night of your Berlin life visiting them and never quite see them all. But, one of the disadvantages of being a gluten-less individual is that you cannot really attend any of the food based ones, or if you do, you just have to sit, sniffing, hungry and sad in the corner. But, thanks to my friend Kate over at Sole Satisfaction, I discovered that Das Brunch is actually quite gluten free friendly. In that all of the food on offer is 100% gluten free with the only stipulation that you have to ask for gluten free bread with your order! The only downside is that Das Brunch does not happen all that often (there have only been three in the past 6 months).
But, enough of all that, you want to know about the delicious food don’t you? You want to know if it’s worth keeping watch and finding out when the next one is? Well, look at this menu.
That’s right, three options, all available gluten free with bread from Jute Backerei! I plumped for the first (with both sausage and bacon, because, why wouldn’t you?) and look what arrived.
It was so good, just as amazing as it looks. Now here is where I came across the only slight wrinkle in an otherwise great experience. The meal came with regular gluten bread and only after I double checked with them did they point this out (always, always, always double check!). Now, it wasn’t an issue, she apologised and went back to have it changed. I’m not sure if they simply misheard me when I ordered or if there was a mixup in the kitchen, but I don’t think it was their fault, just a regular plain old accident.
They change the venue each time, but on my visit it was the CFL Canteen, which was pretty great.
They even had an oyster bar at the back.
In conclusion, I’d definitely recommend a visit next time they appear. Keep an eye on their facebook events page for the next one!
