Dessert for dinner? Yes, but not how you expectedCoda is labeled on Google Maps as a “dessert dining” place. But don't expect here a “dessert” bar or tasting that you might have experienced in some Asia countries, where a series of desserts is served to the guest. At Coda (awarded with 2 stars by Michelin) borders between what is a sweet and savory blur. Ingredients or techniques that we usually associate with desserts go to compositions that would rather be described as appetizers or main courses, not as desserts. Donut with gouda and fermented turnip topping, parsley root with pistachio, apples with sour cream and shiitake, waffles with kimchi powder - all supported by great technical skills. Wine pairing is mostly rieslings and sakes, but you can always stick with a bottle of your favorite champagne or non alc of choice. Everything in a Japanese-ascetic, intimate interior of a small room in Berlin's Neukölln district. Coda’s chef Rene Frank received the title of the world's best patisserie in 2022 - and for his imagination and for giving the word dessert a new meaning, he definitely deserved it.
