  • We Germans should know that we're good at constructing cars and we have a lot of good qualities. But we're not the funniest.
  • [on owning the 'Bar Raval' in Berlin-Kreuzberg] My cooking skills are not the best. That's why I decided to open a restaurant. I have some great chefs and professional cooks who do very, very good Spanish food, Spanish tapas in Berlin. Still far away from a Michelin star.[2015]
  • A dream my girlfriend and I have is to move to New York for a year or two because we just love the city. I would take some acting classes.
  • Eating is my main hobby now, and most of what I do on the weekend revolves around that.
  • I always try to start my weekend by running on the beach, which is great fun here in Barcelona.
