This past sunday, we decided to take a walk on Karl Marx Strasse and have breakfast in a place that we don’t go that often. This place is Vadi Frühstückshaus and we mentioned it fast on our foursquare page. But this post is not about the breakfast we had.
On our way back home, we saw what used to be one of our favorite turkish markets in the area. But it was gone. Right there, we started remembering the great garlic dip they used to have and the amazing hummus we got there a few months ago. But now it is gone. What it still lays there are the posters and signs that nobody cared to take it out.
Since we moved to Neukölln back in april 2012, we saw local stores closing in every block around us. The place where we live right now is pretty different from the one we got to know when we decided to change our minds and move to a neighborhood we never heard much about. Every time we see a shop closed down like this, we wonder on which side we are. Are we the ones to be blamed about the rising rent or the ones that can blame something for the change that is arriving everywhere?
Right now, we just have to find another place to buy that garlic dip and we hope it is not on one of those discount supermarkets we see coming up everywhere around here.
Lets hope something useful opens up in this place.
