Bite Club No. II
Once is an instance, but twice is a hobby, or so the saying goes: After our amazing Season Launch 2017, we’re thrilled to announce our second street food party of the season. As per usual, we’ll be bringing together a roster of Berlin’s finest street food trucks and stalls at our legendary Arena/Hoppetosse location. With whisky (sic!) cocktails provided by Love Scotch, craft beers by Berliner Berg, a selection of biodynamic wines by LADIDADI WINES, and amazing tunes by DJ Alex from London’s Voices Collective!!!
Quite possibly the perfect gourmet sundowners to start your weekend!

★ Bunsmobile: The big yellow truck (plus Victor the Jack Russell) will be serving up their classic cheeseburger with a Singleton BBQ sauce – freshly ground chuck, their custom buns and molten cheddar.
★ Chaiwallahs: Oli is back at Bite Club bringing real Indian streetfood to Berlin with his Chaat stand, serving a sliced lentil samosa covered in all sorts of spicy goodness, like daal, tamarind sauce, beetroot yoghurt and Bombay mix. All vegan too!

★ Pic Nic 34: Gianni will be grilling Arrosticini – a classic Abruzzo streetfood of mutton skewers and fresh-grilled piadinas filled with Sicilian cream cheese, pesto and Italian sausage.
★ Woop Woop: Liquid nitrogen (-196°C) is the magic ingredient that allows these ice cream ninjas to create the freshest, super smooth scoops on the spot in front of your very eyes. As for flavors, think dark-chocolate-whiskey, strawberry-cheesecake, pear-cinnamon, hazelnut-raspberry and many more…
★ Big Sur: Bringing us that famously laid-back California spin on feel good American classics, these fresh and simple dishes run the gamut from deliciously creamy kale salads to succulent buttermilk fried chicken.
★ California Pops: Homemade organic Eis am Stiel all the way from sunny California!

★ Mogg: According to the New York Times food critic Pete Wells ‚only a handful of New York delis can match‘ this Mitte spot’s hefty pastrami on rye.
★ Samurai Spoon: Okonomiyaki (a savoury Japanese pancake) with a body of lettuce and flour griddled to perfection and topped with chopped nori, bonito flakes, Kewpie mayo and special Okonomi sauce.
★ Santa Mamma: Fluffy, chewy, mama approved authentic gnocchi, swashed on the spot in a variety of aromatic sauces from Bolognese and pesto to sage butter and, oh yeah: truffle.

Introducing the Far-East Kimchee Taco; a blend of Kimchee, Korean Salsa, twice caramelized Bulgogi and a choice of two silky sauces.
★ Spice Spice Baby: A taste of the tropics, this sweet and spicy Jamaican Jerk chicken is marinated and slow smoked over thyme strewn coals. Think citrus, rum, cinammon & chilli and you’re almost there on the beach! Served with coconut rice & beans, fried plantain and a Jamaican rum infused gravy
★ Taco Kween: Our resident Mexican stall grind their own GM-free corn tortilla masa for tacos topped with braised pork in annato, roast pineapple or fish in a Basque pepper sauce.
