Only in recent years has Berlin become a popular foodie hub. Thanks to its incredibly diverse population, you can expect to find food here from just about every country in the world.
There are two foods that Berlin specialises in, currywurst, and the döner kebab. Currywurst is a type of sausage that you eat with lashings of curry ketchup sauce, while the döner is a Turkish meal of spiced meat, usually lamb, roasted on a spit and then added to toasted pita with toppings. Thanks to Berlin’s large Turkish population, you’ll find a kebab shop on just about every street corner.
With the wealth of German breweries, it’s very difficult to go thirsty in Berlin.
