MontRaw

About last night. When MontRaw asked me if I wanted to come over for dinner and a chat, I did some research and it looked so good that I got curious. A friend of mine is following their instagram account, so I asked if he had been there. A few times already, it’s great, he said.

Stepping into a restaurant world where you immediately see the hard work being done, such friendly staff, a passionate chef, good quality all in all. One of the things I love most in life, is to be invited for a glimpse of someone else’s dream becoming reality. Thank you so much for having us, MontRaw.

My company for the evening was Johan.

We started with a cocktail, Johan went for the Made in Greece and I had The Pineapple Express. They were both excellent. I never say no to a cocktail with coriander/cilantro.

Before the restaurant got full, I managed to snap this picture.

Johan’s appetizer was a salad with roasted veggies and labneh cheese. It was really delicious, loved that there was chilli added to it.

Overlooking a beautiful crossing, I imagine sitting outside in the Summer people spotting must be quite nice. You can’t see it in this picture, but there was a glimpse of the TV Tower as well, always extra romantic Berlin style.

This was probably the highlight of the dinner – Fish Crudo, such a well balanced appetizer. Beautiful as well.

As main, Johan had the octopus. Mmm.

I went for the smoked duck. OK, this was also the highlight, the spicy pepper cream (the orange stuff) went so amazingly well with the duck and had such a complex, interesting flavour. Gala, the owner, told me the chef brings spices from Israel that we can’t get here. Love it.

Had a nice chat with Gala, this is the corner where you find MontRaw. Make sure to make a reservation, the place got full a while after we got there.

Thanks again for having us, was such a pleasure and I look forward to visiting again. My friend has tried almost the whole menu and told me I have a lot more to discover. Happy and content, we walked all the way back home. A beautiful night.
