Iced Coffee With Ice Cream

It might not be the right weather for this drink in most parts of the world, but I’m sure there is a place right now where the weather permits to enjoy this iced coffee drink!

Ingredients (for one mug):

– 2 scoops of coffee-flavored ice cream (or vanilla ice cream if it’s easier to find)
– 1/2 cup cold milk
– 1/2 cup strong coffee, two times stronger what you’d usually brew
– 5 ice cubes
– Sugar to taste (I don’t usually add sugar to my coffee so I didn’t use sugar in this recipe)


Put all ingredients together in a blender and blend until smooth and homogeneous. ENJOY COLD!

Can anything be simpler and more delicious?!


Susuru (Japanese for slurping)

If you are in Berlin and want to have Asian food, Japanese in particular, there is only one place to head to: SUSURU.

Susuru only serves noodle soups and appetizers, but that won’t matter to you because you wouldn’t want to have anything else anyway!

We started with shrimp dumplings that were very light and perfectly steamed. Then I had the chicken curry udon soup and R. had a shrimp udon soup, both were delicious and the portions were generous. (And yes we slurped!) For dessert we tried the green tea ice cream and the chocolate spring rolls with vanilla ice cream, and needless to say they were both very special.

A small and funny detail about the restaurant: there are kitchen aprons hanging on little hooks on the sides of the tables to protect your clothes while you slurp!

So again if you’re in Berlin and in the mood for Japanese food, try Susuru. Here’s the address:
