I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite things to do on a Sunday is go for brunch. Long lazy meals, usually followed by a stroll somewhere if the weather’s nice. What could be better than that? With this in mind we headed to Tauro, an enormous restaurant spanning 3 floors in the site of a former brewery on Schönhauser Allee. The choice is ridiculous, a slightly daunting prospect for someone as indecisive as me but luckily I soon found my feet. There is everything to choose from, eggs to pancakes to paella and tapas, surely something to keep everyone happy. Apart from anything else, this is a ham lovers dream.
We kicked off with a jug of sangria, totally acceptable at brunch.
Before heading off in different directions to fill our plates, which I must confess, went largely un-photographed. But look at this adorable little creme brulee. I need some of these little dishes in my life.Suitably full, it was time for that stroll so we headed to the beautiful Museum Island and marveled at the incredible architecture. We popped up to the top of the Humboldt-Box for a drink and to take in the view. And then wandered up through a little market and over the river on our way home.Except before we made it back to the hotel we decided to detour via Mogg & Melzer, a New York style Jewish deli for a quick pre-flight bite. Lets be honest, these sandwiches are way better than anything you’ll find at an airport. Sorry the photos are so dreadful, it was dark and we were in a rush. I went for a classic Rueben and mum opted for pulled pork and avocado, both were totally scrumptious. We were cutting it pretty close by this point so rushed back to the hotel to grab our bags and hot-footed it to the airport, only to find our plane was an hour delayed. Obviously. Oh well, we were thankful to have been granted our 2 bonus days.
