Zazie, Lychener Str. 24, 10437 Berlin, Germany

A new fab French restaurant entered the scene. While it belongs to the Belgian/ French connection around themroc & les valseues, we found it even better than the other two. The concept similar: young & wild chefs create gourmet menus for fair prices. 

As a starter we chose beetroot carpaccio with grilled goat cheese (6 EUR) - lots of passion and focus on details for such a small price.

We continued with real tender lamb chops on a variety of root vegetables (16,50 EUR) that make you an addict.

And our friends chose the perfect grilled sea bream fillet in lobster sauce on polenta with green pees and seaweed (16,50 EUR). 

It's always the details...

Takumi Nine, Pappelallee 19, (entrance Raumerstrasse) 10437 Berlin, Germany

Think of big bowls of hearty Japanese Ramen soup, these kind of loaded soups, where every tiny piece of vegetable kept its unique taste, fresh and of high quality - no idea how they do this little corncob  - that is a wonderful little thing. 

Minus: Hell, Yeah. Having ramen restaurants in Düsseldorf and Munich, the owners unfortunately brought Munich prices to Berlin. The soups range from 9 to 15,00 EUR. Our chicken soup was about 9,00 EUR. A lot of people left before ordering. But all that stayed - mainly Japanese folks - were all real fans.

Donath Osteria Ristorante, Schwedter Str. 13, 10119 Berlin, Germany

No chance for traveling this year? Looking for the perfect mussels & spaghetti vongole in Berlin? Then here it comes:

Both dishes were only about 13 EUR, the house wine around 4 EUR. 

Don't wait for the menu card - there is none, all menus are written on the walls. And people told us to try the Arrabiata - which they found to be the best in town!? So, there is always a next time.

Tin Tan, Chausseestrasse 124, 10115 Berlin, Germany

While the burger hype is heading to its peak, there comes a new Berlin trend around the corner - Mexican Street Food. The best place we tried so far is Tin Tan.

Ordering a mixed plate wasn't such a bad idea after all, since we got it all: 

Suadero (beef marinated in milk for several hours), Cochinita (slow roasted pork marinated in citrus juice), Guacamole, grilled chicken and vegetables (19,50 for two). All very fresh and juicy. 

The sauces vary from little to very spicy and the brave ones get the r e a l ones!
