Food in Berlin: Pauly Saal

Coming from the creators of notorious Grill Royal and even more infamous King Size Bar, the opening of Pauly Saal this spring was certainly loaded with expectations. Several months later, it is the food they serve we should focus on.
Being a vegetarian is not easy when visiting an upscale restaurant, most chefs will give you a rather disappointed look when asked to create a dish sans meat. Most of the time you’ll receive a stripped down main course that was hastily made. I have to admit, I expected the same thing happening to me at Pauly Saal. And oh boy was I wrong. They served a poached porcini cream with roasted porcini and cauliflower, tomatoes and crispy quinoa and this was one of the best vegetarian upscale dishes I had in Berlin (so far). It worked on all the levels “normal” dishes should work on: the sweetness of the skinned tomatoes went so well with the earthy porcini and the crispy quinoa made a nice contrast to the tender poached cream. And of course the used produce was excellent in taste. Thanks for this rare treat, I hope this example is going to become a regular habit in Berlin’s restaurant scene.
