I love eating good food. Eating good food is an enjoyment in life, especially if it’s one of the most famous food in Berlin. There are many good food in Berlin, but Berlin is famous for Currywurst and Doner Kebab!
Currywurst is basically just sausage with a spicy sauce added to it. Although it sounds so-so, it tastes good. The sausage is so thick and the sauce has a unique flavor to it. It is sprinkled with paprika flakes on the top, to give it an extra ounce of spiciness. It is usually eaten with fries or bread. I love it because I love spicy food, especially curry.
‘Curry 36’ located @ the exit of the U-Bahn Mehringdamm station is the most popular stall with the locals and tourists. There is always a queue there, but fret not, the queuing time is quite short as they provide a fast service.
Doner kebab is a Turkish dish, however, there are many stalls selling this Turkish delight! Almost every street will have a stall selling it. As you can see from the picture, it looks so appetizing with the bun being stuffed with meat and vegetables. Oh my, just by looking at the picture, it makes me drool. It is also fun to eat it as it will be a messy affair. You will have to take a BIG BITE, if not, the filling will drop out and trust me, you wouldn’t want to waste that.
To try a doner kebab, I would recommend the stall ‘Mustafa’s Gemuse Kebap’ located @ the exit of the U-Bahn Mehringdamm station. There’s always a long queue of people waiting to grab their doner! Well, their secret is that they use chicken meat instead of pork, which makes the meat tenderer and juicier. They also add potatoes into the doner, which is indeed a special and surprising addition because I love potatoes.
Here’s a shout-out to local Berliners: If you happen to know any stall which sells good Currywurst and Doner Kebab, please tell me! I would love to try other stalls and give my review.
p.s: To get your fix of food, go to the U-Bahn Mehringdamm station. You can get both the Currywurst and Doner Kebab (:
