I love brunch, there’s just something so much better about having brunch than breakfast or lunch. Even though 99% of the time I’ll have all three . . . I can eat okay?
I love all of the food that you can get because there’s usually loads of different things including avocados, eggs, fancy different things which you never knew excited. So on my recent travels to Berlin as soon as I heard about the place CABSLAM which is meant to be the place for breakfast/brunch I knew I needed to go.
CABSLAM – Innstraße 47, Neukölln, 12045, Berlin
CABSLAM actually stands for The California Breakfast Slam so you can understand why they shortened the name, even though it’s nice putting that everywhere would take ages. The name comes from the fact that it’s an American style place that serves breakfast and brunch served with some California love.
Have I already mentioned how much I love this place? Like I honestly fell in love with it and would love to go back to Berlin simply for this place, if you’re ever in the city it’s a must.
Fair enough it is a short trek to find it and we did get a little confused by our map apps, it took us through some of not the best streets which was a little scary but at the same time I loved it, you really got a feel for the place and saw the bits that’s not just on show as you would expect. This doesn’t mean that CABSLAM is in some sort of run down, unsafe slum by any means – you’re perfectly safe.
I opted for the Huevos Rancheros in the brunch size for €8.90 and if you’re not aware what that is it’s basically a plate of two homemade corn tortilla with two fried eggs, black beans, fresh pico de gallo salsa, guacamole and sour cream. I’ve never tried this before but thought it sounded like the perfect thing and oh my days was it one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.
It was honestly so good and just writing this post and looking back at the photos is making me drool, I might have to try and recreate this myself at home one day.
Mark on the other hand opted for the Breakfast Burrito for €6.90, not going to lie I was completely tempted to opt for this one myself because it sounds amazing. ‘Flour tortilla filled with egg, bacon, cheese, black beans, ranchero sauce and potato.’ – I would be lying if I said I didn’t end up eating probably half of it, I can’t help it. I have a thing for eggs okay?
Overall get me on a plane back to this place asap.
