Travel from West to East through the Dinner table Dinner

Berlin
Travel from West to East through the Dinner table Experience experimentation - fresh local ingredients via Taiwanese cooking methods, one traditional recipe from the grandma who lived across the street in Salvador with a hint of East Asia. We play in the kitchen, we discover new stories in every texture, we create “convivir”, the pleasure of living/eating together. We’ve always appreciated the idea of synchronising food with the seasons. The traditional East Asian lunisolar calendar is comprised of 24 points, or solar terms (節氣), each of which matches a particular astronomical event or signifies some natural phenomenon. Numerous civilisations observe festivals in accordance with this calendar. And there are certain foods and ingredients that we eat depending on the term. We combine the concept with seasonal ingredients we find in the local market wherever we are. We’d like to invite you to join the adventure, travel from West to East through the dinner table, and sync with the season. 麵線煎 Mī-Suànn-Tsian Taiwanese angel hair noodle pancake fried with black sesame oil, served on a bed of steamed baby spinach and cured egg yolk. It’s the kind of food that every mom makes at home but you can hardly ever find in a restaurant, even in Taiwan. I guess today is your lucky day then. 潤餅捲 Roon-Piánn-Kauh Paper thin crepe served with slow cooked pork belly, grilled spring vegetable, crunchy egg pops, and braised tofu, sprinkled with peanut powder. Commonly eaten during spring festival and 清明 (Pure Brightness, a solar term in the lunisolar calendar, two weeks after the spring equinox). The best thing about this dish is that you can be so greedy by wrapping everything in your crepe until it explodes. 當歸油封鴨 Tong-Kui-Ah Confit de canard (Duck confit) cooked in Tong-Kui (當歸) infused oil, served with plum flavoured mashed sweet potato and green asparagus. Tong-Kui (當歸) is a type of Taiwanese herbal medicine, on 立冬 (Another solar term, 6 weeks before the Winter Solstice), we’d have herbal tonics cooked with chicken, duck or lamb, in order to replenish energy and prepare for winter. Nowadays we just have it any day we like because it tastes so damn great. 甜點 (庶饈仔) Sì-Siù-Á Dark chocolate mousse with kumquat filling, served with matcha chocolate stick, caramelised orange, and lemon sorbet. Autumn fruits and colours inspired dessert to synchronise with the seasons, totally Instagram worthy, I promise you. Taiwanese Highland Tea Ceremony Fresh tea came straight from a family-run tea farm on the highland of Taiwan.

We are Simo: Three Taiwanese food enthusiasts who have lived across four continents, including Taipei, Barcelona and Amsterdam, Salvador, Dakar and Cairo. The vibrant, diverse food cultures that we’ve experienced in each city have inspired us to master this universal language. Food connects people. It builds bridges between cultures.
