4. June 2015: Restaurant Heimat

| August 1, 2015 | 0 Comments

The restaurant Heimat had been recommended to me previously and that evening I finally made it here. The amuse bouche from the kitchen was a “fillet with green sauce” which was – interesting to tickle your taste buds and to activate your palate.


As a starter, I went for “quail, beluga lentils, radiccio, yoghurt, curry, wild herbs” (EUR 18.00) which was very yummy. The amount of quail was generous and the quail itself was nicely juicy while still having a great grill crust around! Lovely!


As a main course I had “turbot, peas, mint, iberico ham” (EUR 31.00) which was actually as lovely as the starter. Especially the combination of the iberico ham with its saltiness, the consistency of the fish, and the sauce with mint and peas made it a little taste explosion.


While the dishes are absolutely tasty, I must also say that the prices are quite steep for Germany. But it is worth visiting the restaurant Heimat if you are into good food. The prices for the beverages on the other side are more than okay – a double espresso accounts for EUR 3.00, a bottle of water (0,75L) for EUR 6.50, a 0,2L glass of Riesling Rings for EUR 11.50, and a 0,2L glass of “Acústic 2012, Garnatxa & Samsó, Montsant” for EUR 9.50.

Compared to the rest, the “bread and olive spread” you get in the beginning is rather boring. What is definitely not so satisfying is the atmosphere – while the setup is quite okay, the tables which are located outside are right by the main street which makes it a rather busy place not giving you the time to talk in peace.


As a dessert from the kitchen you get a combination of “pineapple, almond splitters, coconut foam” which was surprisingly lovely despite it being very simple.


While the dishes are lovely, I wonder sometimes how people actually get hired to do their jobs – especially in jobs where you have to interact with customers on a very frequent basis like being a waitress. She was super quick, super not talkative at all, just somehow unfriendly, not exactly rude but close to rude. A pity, as else I would say – despite its location – I can recommend the restaurant for the dishes. But the service was far from perfect – too far!
