Let’s start with a new chapter on www.kevinelezaj.com. Let’s start with “Health“ and its sub-categories “Fitness“ and “Food“.

It really interests me, when a new spot opens it doors. As Toni and I visit a lot, and I really mean a lot, of those culinary places, we decided to give you all informations in my category “Food“.

Here, in my “Food-corner“, the major topics will be about some hidden Restaurants, charming Cafés, and other hip places where you can grab some healthy dishes. I’ll give you a detailed overview of each places food, prices, service, cleanliness, interior, and location. All needful you have to know about eating off-site. In the end, I’ll give a strict but fair assessment (from 0-5 stars), which is also viewed on Yelp.


So here is my first: “Funk You“ in Berlin Mitte. Funny thing: We accidentally strolled into on their first opening.

The real citizens of Berlin already know, the area between Alexanderplatz, Hackescher Markt, Rosenthaler Platz, and Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz is THE culinary hotspot of the city.

And here, you really can enjoy a “good“ food. I mean, I don’t want to slander about the area at Ku’damm, but it truly is a trap for tourists and not the real Berlin.

However, we already visited “Funk You“ the third time, always for breakfast.

 

FOOD

Here, we’ll rate flavor, arranging / appearance, and variety of the dishes. We ordered a detox smoothie, a flat white, an espresso macchiato, poached eggs on avocado toast, an acai bowl, and a salad called “que viva la musica“. Everything tasted well, the arraning of the food was nice (especially the wood-dinner tray looked stylish), expect the Acai Bowl, but this was the only disappointment in that part. Variety: Definitely a sufficient selection of breakfast-dishes, salads, and smoothies. Unfortunately the Ceviche, which Toni tried to order at each time we were there, was never available.


Rating: 4 for flavor, 4  for appearance, 3,5 for variety

PRICE-PERFORMANCE

Detox Smoothie (0,2 – 0,3l): € 6. Simply to expensive for such a little amount.

Flat White: € 3,3. Totally fine.

Espresso Macchiato: € 2,5. Totally fine too.

Poached eggs on avocado toast: € 7,5. At the frontier.

Acai Bowl: € 7,9. Far too much.

Salad: € 7,5. Totally fine, because this one tastes really delicious.

 


Rating: 3

SERVICE

Friendly and willing, but we recognized a clear instability of the team. It took a little time until we had all our dishes and they clearly seemed stressed. But we have to be gracious, they just opened and need some time to grow stability.


Rating: 4  for kindness, 2,5  for accomplishment

CLEANLINESS

We had non-polished cutlery, that was bad.


Rating: 2 

INTERIOR

Stylish, clean, a lot of plants. Totally my style and very homelike.


Rating: 4,5 

LOCATION

Rosenthaler Str. 23, 10119 Berlin
One of the best areas anyway, “Funk You“ totally fits into with their selection of healthy food and drinks. Disadvantage: If you want to enjoy breakfast or lunch in the sun (always from 10 am to 2 pm) you have to deal with the passing cars.


Rating: 4,5 

SUMMARY

The “Funk You“ in Berlin Mitte offers a great variety of delicious and natural food. The location is nearly perfect, the interior inviting. The service is friendly but not sovereign yet. I think this associates with young and inexperienced staff. The price-performance ratio mismatches a little bit.


With a critical eye, we give a final grade of 3,5
