Respond to Review of Lucky Leek
by Jan Hicks
Review: My husband and I visited Lucky Leek on our recent visit to Berlin and were blown away by the quality of the food. It's very rare that we go to a restaurant and are spoiled for choice on the menu. We turned up on spec on a balmy August evening and sat outside in the sunshine. The staff were friendly and laid back, and seemed to enjoy our enjoyment of their food! I had smoked tofu on a bed of horseradish sauce between two shards of filo pastry, accompanied by beluga lentils and a pumpkin sour cream sauce. It was a work of art and the most delicious meal I've ever eaten. My husband had the leek and pineapple risotto, which was perfectly cooked, with just enough bite. For dessert, I had a berry tart with avocado-lime ice cream and my husband had a chocolate concoction. We were both very full after these courses and thought that the bill for our meal was very reasonable, given the high quality of the food. We'd spent a similar amount on a meal in an Italian restaurant on the Gendarmenmarkt, and the food wasn't as good quality as the meal we had at Lucky Leek. It felt like a proper night out, and I wish we had something similar nearby at home. Well worth a visit.
