Food in Berlin: Pauly Saal for Lunch

stilinberlin pauly saal

I’ve been writing about Pauly Saal before, and since then had a lot of discussions about it with other people about the quality and the pricing of the food there, which some think don’t go very well together. Judging the appropriateness of prices is hard, especially in Berlin, where every entrée over 15 Euros is considered expensive (and every falafel sandwich over 4 Euros for that matter).
Still, I think the food is fantastic – the vegetarian option I had for lunch was a salad (8 Euros) followed by pearl barley risotto with greens and those black mushrooms, whose name I forgot, with a very balanced yet creative taste (15 Euros). The desert included quinces and therefor was a winner for me anyway (I’m still on the quince-hype, which I think should’ve lasted a lot longer than it did). So I’d say yes, it’s worth it.

    is that the same owner as the one in Pappelallee, or have they moved or is it just coincidence they have the same name? inquiring mind wants to know.

      it’s the same owners – they’ve got two locations now.
