“Or?” Sorry, don’t know her—”or” is not a word in our summer vocabulary. It’s not in tobacco technology pioneer glo™‘s either—and that’s what inspired the brand’s motto for this season: #OhneWennUndOder, which—for those of the less dextrous linguists among us—loosely translates as, no “if”s or “or”s. Encouraging Berliners to live their best lives and indulge a little, last week, glo™ Germany invited a group of participants (us among them) to experience the city without limitations, to practice saying “yes” and give in to temptation in true summer spirit.
Despite Berlin’s temperamental climate (rain, rain and even more rain), we headed to Gundi Spätkauf on Neukölln’s Karl-Marx-Strasse on Wednesday afternoon to embark on a slightly more *investigative* type of journalism, as glo™ guided us around the city with a series of tip-offs.
The first gave us “Vietnamese”, “eclectic furniture”, “summer cocktails” and “the DISTRICT Mitte”, leading us to local bao bun favourite, Saigon Street Food spot District Mot. Here, we answered no questions—we simply indulged in strawberry mojitos infused with everything. Lychee? Check. Mint? Why not. Pineapple? Yes, please. glo™ also offered up its own flavourful contributions, too—giving us a new kind of experience without compromising on taste, and allowing us to soak up the full aroma experience of the Viet cuisine around us. Then, we received our second clue: “a kingdom for desserts”.
