I like to think of myself as a sophisticated gourmet who has eaten in some fabulous and famous restaurants all over the world. Moving to Berlin, some 3 months ago, was not a decision I took lightly. It is a wonderful city, but has a lot to learn re: food and restaurants. The Germans are traditonal, stuck in their ways and are suspicious of new and exciting styles of cooking. Not so in Vai Mo, one of the best restaurants in Berlin! Joe, the chef is inventive and exciting (he's worked all over the world to learn his craft and is an artist) and this shows in the way he cooks the freshest of ingredients. On arrival at the restaurant I was greeted like a long lost friend (I had been there once before!) the first time I talked to Joe i trusted him completely, so i left the entrees to him. Ten minutes later we were presented with two plates of delicious amuse bouche. Calamari, so fresh and tender was served on a bed of seaweed with vanilla!- (exquisite!), accompanied by moules and the fattest and most succelent scampi, i have ever had. We also had a plate of wonderful salamis, capers and cold veal served with a tuna mayo ( a nice twist on a traditonal Italian dish). The starters were so wonderful, that I thought that they would be a hard act to follow- no such worries. The Tuna flown in from Italy that day, was so pink and fresh it was a joy to eat! and my Steak was cooked to perfection. We finished the meal with the sweetest aplomb- a medley of tirimasui and a basilico pannacotta. Our wonderful waiter, was kind friendly and funny and really knows about wine and service. Its a small atmospheric restauarnt and is a credit to the owners and the good people that work there. My only fear is that it will become so popular that I won't be able to get a table! Wonderful!!!
