The intention of this homepage is to help my friends from all over the world to orientate in Berlin and to find some nice restaurants. Of course all other people are welcome to read here. If I could help somebody, I am happy. I do not follow any commercial aspects with this page.
After 28 years out of my home city I am since 2020 back with my family in my home town. We are a normal family. Father, Mother, Teenage son and baby boy.
We have been the last 12 years in the Arabic Kingdom of Bahrain. So now we are in a complete different kind of civilisation. I.e., in Bahrain we have had simple (and mostly poor) health care. I went to the dentist because I had pain. All good the dentist said. Three month later he took the tooth out. “Can’t be saved”.
In Berlin I went to my friend Uwe (dentist 🦷 ). You need to wait normally two month for an appointment. As Uwe is an old friend, he had me “dazwischen geschoben” (squeezed in). After seeing my teeth he ask the nurse to make x-rays. “Be honest, how many years you have not been at the dentist”, he asked me. I was quite frustrated as I was three month ago the last time. “All fine, the pain can come from cold,” the Bahraini doc stated. He was from the most reputable clinic in the kingdom.
Uwe stated four (!) teeth are in danger, one need to be removed. He send me to another clinic. They gave me an appointment after 10 days (“also other patients have pain”)There I had a talk (Beratungsgespräch) first. Six working days later they extracted the tooth. They recommended to pay another 277 € for a special infusion of my own blood in the bone. This would help to heal. Next the threads will be taking out and after the professor will explain me, how to implant new teeth in the spaces I lost in Bahrain. The Berlin way seems to be super – super professional. But a bit heartless.
What we really like are the restaurants in Berlin. When I left the average was not good. Now it became sometimes even fabulous and I know what I talk about. I was for 10 years one of 1000 voters worldwide for the 50 best Restaurants in the World organization. Also I write for Gourmet Report. Visit the Berlin section of Gourmet Report.
As we are living in Charlottenburg most restaurants I am writing about are in that area or in the neighborhood.
