Modern kitchen and interesting tasting menu Berlin-sytle: Restaurant VOLT (7. February 2020)

| March 10, 2020 | 0 Comments

The Restaurant VOLT is located in the Kreuzberg area so a bit off from the city center, however, it’s worth the ride to Kreuzbeg. The evening started with three different small bites (“black cabbage leave, mustard seeds, and mustard cream”, “rip meat ball with soy mayonnaise” and “wan tan chip, trout tartare, lemon mayonnaise”) to get your palate in motion and was the first round of the “five course menu” (EUR 79.00). I especially loved the tiny but very juicy meat balls which were full of flavor.

The “home-made sourdough bread served with salted nut butter and pumpkin créme fraîche spread” was absolutely delicious – and the fact that it wasn’t flat white bread but actually wholegrain added to the experience.

The amuse bouche “potatoes with sea salt, pickled tangerine, salad yogurt cream and candied olive” was lighting up my palate and got it ready for the actual menu.

First in line was “pulpo, celery, miso, physalis” (usually EUR 18.00) which was absolutely great. Especially, since the pulpo was steamed first, then grilled, creating a lovely texture of very smooth pulpo with a nice grill flavor and an enjoyable consistency.

The “salsify, citrus, cabbage” (usually EUR 18.00) was good in terms of flavor and consistency and although it was a fully vegetarian dish, it was very delicious.

The “fried cod, cox apple, rice” (usually EUR 19.00) was the weakest dish of the evening. The rice patty below as well as the rice crisp didn’t really add much to the flavor.

The “boiled veal fillet, cauliflower, chestnut, sherry” (usually EUR 18.00) on the other hand was mouth-watering. The meat was incredibly tender and full of flavor. The chestnut purree was good but the roasted chestnuts were roasted a bit too much for my personal gusto! The combination of flavors was exquisite though.

For dessert, they served “banana, mascarpone, passion fruit, chocolate” (usually EUR 15.00) and I must say I actually liked the dish although I’m usually not a big fan of desserts but the ice cream was delicious and you just can’t go wrong with the combination of chocolate and banana – it really is a good combination making it kind of a banana split dessert.

The petit fours (“pumpkin seed chocolate” and “orange macaroon with white chocolate and bergamot filling”) which were served to finish off the dinner were good but I definitely have had better chocolates in my life.

The place itself is quite nice in terms of interior design and quite enjoyable overall. Furthermore, the service does a good job – the right combination between being professional and being jovial in a still pleasant way.

To accompany the menu, I went for the “Esporão Reserva Tinto, Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez, Trincadeira, Cabernet Sauvignon” (EUR 47.00) which was good fit as it wasn’t all too strong and heavy but rather light but still full of flavor. The prices for the beverages were absolutely okay too with EUR 6.00 for a bottle of water and EUR 3.00 for an espresso. All in all, I can recommend you to visit the VOLT – just make sure to book a table in advance as else it will be difficult)ult for you to get one last minute.
