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).

The German kitchen situation is a little problematic in Berlin to say the least, most of the food you’ll find is either Swabian or Alpine, but this they do well. Like the one I am presenting you today with the simple name “Lebensmittel in Mitte” (Lebensmittel being one of those pretty German words, literally meaning means to live).
Last week, I was invited for a dinner at Richard, a fairly new restaurant on Köpenicker Straße, just off Eisenbahnstraße. This area is certainly not known for upscale restaurants and thus the choice of location might be astonishing. But the space is actually one of the oldest restaurants of Berlin and has been remodeled for Richard. Of course they kept the carved wooden ceiling and the beautiful big windows facing the street adding some contemporary art and fancy bubble chandeliers.
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.
I just assume that most of you know the restaurant “Katz Orange” already, since it received so much praise for its kitchen being regional, seasonal and creative since its opening last January.
