After my 3rd attempt, I finally succeeded. Twice I tried to book a Dinner at the "Altes Zollhaus" in Kreuzberg. Twice I was rejected. This Tuesday I succeeded without problems and the place was not overcrowded as I feared. Seems to be that Friday is a very bad day to book at the "Zollhaus".
Well, another noteworthy dining experience after Gruenfisch yesterday. We had:
- Rouladen vom Fasan mit Kastanien
- Terrine von Lachs and Eel
- Raviolone filled with Oxtail con choux de Brussels
- duck wiht Gruenkohl und Rotkohl, Thueringer Kartoffelkloss
- Hirschruecken auf Kohlrabi und Maronen puree
- Parfait di Cioccolato
After having tasted the starters (Pheasant Breast and rolled smoked salmon and eel), I was still not convinced. It was good, but it was a bit like "Emirates - Businessclass" without a distinct taste - and the samon eal terrine was also too cold.
My judgement changed with the next course. The raviolone with oxtail filling was superb! Then, wen I got my Deer filet, I became a fan of the chef. Cooked perfectly, wonderful contrast to the "Schwarzwurzeln" and the Maron Puree.
I am not an expert for sweets, but I appreciated the chocolat parfait.
One liter Horcher Merlot/Portugieser, a light red which accompanied the dishes very well at the reasonable price of 24 €. I am not always a fan of fixed menus, but in this case, the solution is great. The restaurant offers prices for 3 course, 4 course and 5 course menus (40,45,50€) and you can assemble them from the list without limitations, great!
A goodie is that I can walk from my home to the "Altes Zollhaus".
