    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.

    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!

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

    by matcrazy1 Updated Sep 9, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ROSTBRATWURST  ON  THE  WALL :-)

    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.

    Best Currywurst in town??
    Maybe, but definitely belonging to top ten, perfect for a Berliner fast-food taste and a beer during your tour round Kreuzberg.
    Station: Mehringdamm

    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

    FOR  BUDGET  TRAVELLERS

    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

    MAX  FOOD  STALLS

    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

    BERLINER  HAUPTSTADT  BREZEL  1 ���

    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.

    Berlin Imbiss

    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!

    Burger King: Alternative to Curry wurst!

    A welcome sight perhaps?

    If you are missing all the regular fast food varieties then fear not as Berlin has about 50 McDonalds and plenty of other American fast food chains. We even have drive ins such as the McDrive, but most people prefer to sit in and eat! Most of the fast food restaurants are located in the western part of Berlin. Around Mitte you will find mostly German eateries!

    Good cheap Chinese food.

    There are a few different types of Imbiss now with more and more of thse popping up. Traditionally the Imbiss was German or Turkish food, but now you will find many that are Asian cuisine.

    Favorite Dish: I love Chinese food so I would say most things. They usualy specialize with a fried noodle plate.

    Doner Kebabs! Even when sober!

    by DrewV Updated Aug 13, 2003

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just when it looks as though you'll be eating expensive calves' brains forever, Germany comes up with a delicious, nutrious, cheap tasty treat: the Doner Kebab! Suspiciously resembling a gyro, the doner kebab is a Turko-German specialty sold all over the country, from Berlin to Bacharach. And it's tasty. Lots of veggies, cucumber/garlic sauce, delicious kebab meat (lamb, I guess, but I don't really know -- If you like, they have chicken, too!). All for something outrageously cheap like 2 Euro.

    An upmarket imbiss

    If you are on a bit of abudget the best way to eat is form an Imbiss. These you will find all over the city and they offer typical German food ie bratwurst or schnitzel with pommes (fries) or you must try a dönar. Berlin has a large Turkish population and the dönar is found everywhere.

    Favorite Dish: There is nothing quite like a dönar or Turkish pizza.

    Krua Thai: Cheap but good Thai food

    by nigelw6443 Written Jul 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is more an Imbiss than restaurant although it has about 10 tables and in the summer some tables on the street. When I first ate here it reminded me of dining in a guest house in Bangkok.

    Favorite Dish: Definately the Phad Thai although most dishes are superb.

    Found in various places around Berlin: My Favorite Fast Food in Berlin

    by cwest03 Updated Sep 16, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: Berlin has some of the best donner kebap stands in Eurpoe (they are my hands down favorite). This turkish sandwich can be found almost anywhere in the city. Just keep your eyes out for the signature meat on the spit which may look like a gyro stand to those in the US. The döner kebap however is not served in a pita like a gyro but instead is server in a flat bread and is garnished with onions, cabbage and a special sauce. Outside of Berlin the kebap changes in the way it is served. It's still good but just not the same. Döner is a good meal any time of the day for lunch, dinner or as a late night snack after a long night of drinking beers.

    The Bratwurst Guy: Bratwurst

    by Rude_boy22 Written Sep 14, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Crappy summer jobs, Even in Berlin.

    I did my best secret agent work to get this picture. The guy just seemed to be hating this job so much. Selling bratwurst to tourists in this self contained grill that must have weighed a ton strapped to his back, in the middle of the summer heat no less, must have been horrible. I waited until he wasn't looking and snapped a picture. I wanted to come over there and give him one of those "We've all been there fella'...Chin up" speeches.
