Relais de Savanne on Prinzenallee is not only a restaurant to taste traditional African food but also a meeting point for the African community in Wedding. As such it’s the perfect spot to experience of small bit of African culture, specially African Music. They also cooperate with a money raising program for the funding of a hospital in the city of Dapaong in north Togo.
Apart from all this Relais de Savanne is a very nice and cosy place to stop by for dinner. The space has a homely feel, on the way to the toilets you have to pass by what it seems like a small living room with a couple of sofas and a TV. We had some kind of pasty (Teigtaschen) filled with meat, peas and carrots. The salad on the side had a flavourful dressing that reminded us to something but we couldn´t figure out what. The hot sauce had a nice punch and great depth of flavour: one of the highlights of the meal. For our main courses we had beef brochette with rice, and a huge fish with sweet potatoes. Both dishes were nicely seasoned. I haven’t that many chances in Berlin to experience African cuisine (the only other was at the amazing Ethiopian restaurant in Kreuzberg), but look forward to the next time. I always find it filling and full of powerful flavours. We paid around €15 each with starter and drinks. A very tasty experience.
I´ll also add a video I found online so you can have a look inside and see the concerts they organize, the lady on the microphone was actually there where we went to the restaurant.
