    Mr Kebap Tor Strasse: Cheap and cheerful

    by mccrorj Written Aug 28, 2006

    Pleasant imbiss kebab shop. I have a weakness of Mr Kebap as he has been here a number of years. His english isn't brilliant but he is very patient and always ready with a bit of banter. His food is basic but cheap and plentiful. Unlike the UK you can have a proper meal at the imbiss having food and drink or either one or the other. The prices are dramatically lower than the restaurants within a five minute walk. He does a normal donner kebab for 2 euros and will do a full chicken for 4 euros. He will of cours do the full range of food and drink to take away. I always have a meal here as you get closer to the people who actually live in the local neighbourhood.

    Favorite Dish: Donner kebab with hot sauce or one of his grilled chickens with pommes

    Stand outside Bahnhoff Zoo: Fresh Pretzels

    by julia687 Updated May 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is just a food stand outside the station and needing breakfast we stopped and had the most amazing pretzel in the world, they were freshly made and still warm. mmmm yummy!
    Plus they were so cheap! They were less than a euro - can't remember how much exactly.

    The major stations have lots of food places in them, don't worry about eating from them everything looks clean and all the locals are eating from them. A great way to eat on a budget.

    Favorite Dish: Pretzel

    Currywurst: Berlin fast food

    by Sjalen Written Nov 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A German sausage with curry powder poured on it is a Berlin delicatessen in the fast food area. I certainly liked it, even though I had expected something more "unusual" bearing in mind all the fuss :))) You will find stalls everywhere in the city.

    ?: Kebabs!

    by chess_machine Written Oct 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kebabs in Berlin, and I guess in Germany, are great and cheap. Used to eat them pretty often in France but there, they are much different, and much better. Dont know if it is the meat they put inside, but kebabs there are great. If you want to discover the other (good) side of kebabs, try one of them in Berlin.

    Imbiss: Bratwurst!!!! Currywurst!!!!

    by Bigs Written Oct 14, 2005

    Favorite Dish: This is no real restaurant tip, it´s more a "must eat" during your stay in Germany. There are always street vendors around the next corner who sell you a nice sausage or even better the typical Currywurst. Berlin is famous for this. It´s a grilled sausage with curry ketchup..... Try it, you will love it!!!!

    Doner Kebobs anyone?

    by TitaLayssa Updated Aug 7, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was the closest place to the hostel where we were staying, Mitte Backpackers, all of about 20 steps away. One of the hotel clerks recommended it and rightfully so. I'm embarrassed to say that I don't remember the name of the place, but it was a Turkish deli. Being the most recent immigrant group to reach Germany, Turkish food is still pretty cheap. Very clean and with a friendly and patient staff. It was so great we continuously went there during our stay in Berlin!

    Favorite Dish: The doner kebobs (forgive any misspellings please) were the main highlight as the were essentially a complete meal on their own: similar to a gyro, including meat and all sorts of fresh and crispy veggies, with a light sauce, and served on a flatbread...Big, toasty, satisfying and very inexpensive -- drippy goodness. Side items were of the vegetable kind and also just as fresh and delicious. One standout was a tomato and goatcheese (possibly feta) salad drizzled with herbs and olive oil.

    Snacks (Döner, Currywurst, etc.): The best döner kebap in Berlin?

    by argentia Written Jul 24, 2005

    Favorite Dish: The döner kebap at this imbiss may be the best in Berlin. In fact, this was the best kebap we had in during our trip. The pita is toasted to perfection, and the stuffings are fresh and incredibly delicious. And it only costs 1,90 euro!

    Imbiss Kebab: Kebab in the corner

    by drei3t Updated Oct 6, 2004

    In Berlin you can see "Imbiss Kebab" signs everywhere. Well, nowadays you can see kebab signs all over the world.. In Imbiss Kebab restaurants you will be served portions of greasy lamb meat with different kind of extras, such as french fries, rice or pita bread. And of course 1-2 chili peppers and mild/hot sauces.

    Favorite Dish: Kebab with pita bread is the most famous variant. Preferably eaten along the way to hotel after night in restaurant.

    Street vendor by Neue Nationalgalerie: Rostbratwurst-Berlin version of hot dog

    by matcrazy1 Updated Sep 9, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There were grilled sausages sold on a street from movable cart with a small grill located next to New National Gallery (Neue Nationalgalerie) at Potsdamer Straße. The vendor could speak fluently... German.

    The sausages were large and served in a bun with mustard added. If you don't like mustard say it on time :-). It was Berlin's and better version of hot-dog. Additionally there were two kinds of sausages to choose: normal (darker) and white ("weiß" - typical German and... not my favourite). The dish was called in typical German way - just one long word: "Rostbratwurst" (grill - bread - sausage, right? I am not sure).

    Favorite Dish: Rostbratwurst for 1.50 € (with darker sausage) tasted good :-). Just in case... well done is "gut gemacht" in German language.

    ROSTBRATWURST  ON  THE  WALL :-)

    Favorite Dish: Just say: "Eine Currywurst bitte!"

    Imbiss kiosk: Imbiss - a Berlin institution!

    by matcrazy1 Updated Apr 21, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Imbiss is a Berlin institution. It's a name of numerous fast food stands (like this one on my picture or located in a trailer) or small eating places (standing room only). Originally they served either German or Turkish food but nowadays I found Imbiss with Asian food served as well. Imbiss is a great option esp. for budget travelers.

    Menu:
    Food:
    Currywurst (sausage with curry sause) - 1.50
    Wienerwurst lang (long, hot pig's sausage :-) - 1.70
    Bockwurst (boiled sausage) - 1.70
    Boulette - 2.00
    Rostbratwurst (grilled sausage) - 1.80
    Fleichspie? - 2.50
    Pommes frites (potato chips/crisps)- 1.50
    Kartofellsalat (potato salad) - 1.50
    Nudelsalat (dumpling's salad) - 1.50
    Extras: Br?tchen (a bun) o. Mayo o. Ketchup - 0.20
    Drinks:
    Coca-Cola, Fanta, Sprite, Lift 0.5 l - 1.50
    Mineralwasser 0.5 l (San Benedetto, no sparkling) - 1.50
    Berliner Kindl bier (beer) 0.33 l - 1.30
    Multivitamin 0.33 l - 1.50
    Kakao 0.25 l - 1.50
    Kaffee (tasse = a cup) - 1.00
    Bier vom Fass (draught beer - HB M?nchen 0.3 l) - 1.90

    Guten apetite :-)

    Favorite Dish: Currywurst (grilled, small sausages with curry sauce - hot!) served with potato chips/crisps for only 1.50 € ! If you don't like spicy food order "rostbratwurst " - large, grilled sausage in a bun; German, better version of hot dog :-) for 1.80 €.

    Max: Food and... wine stalls

    by matcrazy1 Updated Apr 16, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found this movable food stalls/cart on my picture on my short walk from Brandenburg Gate to Reichstag. Whenever you go to Berlin I am not sure if you find it there.
    The stall was marked by a logo MAX but I am not sure whether it was a name of any chain/net.

    Favorite Dish: They sold Berlin's warm pretzels and wine called Glühwein (alone, with rum or amaretto) -both were not my favourite.
    Anyway try the wine.

    Food stand: Berlin's warm pretzels

    by matcrazy1 Updated Apr 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I found street vendor equiped with a cart with a small grill who sold pretzels and hot sausages in front of Neue Nationalgalerie either on Saturday and on Sunday. He warmed the pretzels on the grill. The pretzels had not very modest German name: Berliner Haupstadt Brezel and costed 1.00 €.

    Favorite Dish: Hmm... next time I would buy the sausages. The pretzel was eatable but... not fresh, that's why he sold them warmed up, I suppose.

    Snacks: Where there are flea markets there is food!

    by nigelw6443 Updated Oct 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Where ever there is a market you will always find food. This imbiss is at the flea market Am Kupfergraben. A is traditional here you can get a Bratwurst in a bun with coffee or a cold Schultheis beer, which is a local Berlin brew.

    Favorite Dish: Well I would say it has to be a roast brat!
