Restaurant Tim Raue

Tim Raue Restaurant Meal

If you’re in Berlin and into food, you will have heard of Tim Raue. The former delinquent from Kreuzberg is the ultimate Berliner-made-good, now running three restaurants, including his eponymous flagship – one of just four Berlin establishments to have earned two Michelin stars. We were lucky enough to be invited to Restaurant Tim Raue and sat at the chef’s table (The Krug Table), for an introduction from the man himself. Raue started us off with eight small dishes, which illustrated how he tailors Asian cuisine to fit European tastes – and in the case of the not-actually-alive drunken prawns – local food laws! Over six succulent courses, we sampled high-quality ingredients prepared meticulously, from caviar to Cantonese-style langoustine to truffle brought all the way from Australia. We aren’t the food writers to do Restaurant Tim Raue justice, so we’ll leave that to Berlin Food Stories, and jump straight into the pretty pictures – feast your eyes!

Sometimes real music journalism puts us to shame. “Berlin art rock experimentalists ghostandthesong soundtrack many things. Long walks along the sea at night; Finding a hidden message written inside a wall addressed to your unborn child; Having Lovecraft stories read to you by a young child” – Blitzgigs. Between that and the Berlin project’s description of itself as “imploding pop”, we have little to add; instead, we’ll share ghostandthesong’s “Sledgehammer”-meets-Terry Gilliam-meets-all-kinds-of-awesome video for “ou inme” (directed by hypertrashwonderland):
