    Kardesler Grill: A Cracking Kebab!

    by johngayton Written Feb 1, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I consider myself a bit of a kebab connoiseur and the Doner from here is definitely one of the best I've tasted. Of course kebabs being a late-night thing, after the beers, mean that sometimes my recollections of them can be a tad hazy but this one I do recall vividly. A well-taosted pita packet absolutely crammed with juicy meat, just the right amount of fresh-tasting salad and a chilli sauce with a discernable kick but a good tomtoey backtaste - absolutely spot-on.

    Service too was excellent, swift and friendly and I think it was just over three Euros for what made for a substantial late night feast.

    Cheap meal On The Run: Currywurst @ Checkpoint Charlie

    by Mikebb Updated Dec 28, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked past here every morning and evening as it was 100 metres from our hotel and on the way to Stadtmitte metro station.

    Entrance is next to the Berlin Wall and around the corner from Checkpoint Charlie.

    Everything looked good and priced reasonably, however we never dined here as we had either just finished breakfast or were returning from dinner.

    Favorite Dish: 50 metres from Checkpoint Charlie.

    The Bratwurst Guy: Bratwurst

    by Rude_boy22 Written Sep 14, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Crappy summer jobs, Even in Berlin.

    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 :-)

    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.

    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.

    ?: 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.

    Konopke's Curry Wurst: "The best curry wurst in Berlin" - believe me!

    by pumukliboti Written Oct 12, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Curry wurst - if You know Berlin only a bit - is the great, alltime "enemy" of döner.
    It's been in Berlin since (as the legend goes) Mr. Currywurst invented it, and Konopke is the place where he used to work, his sons and daughters rolled the shop on and on through the years, and today You can get this snack everywhere, but here it's the original and the best!

    Favorite Dish: Curry wurst mit pommes und ein Kraftmalz

    (The superb sausage with curry-ketchup, fries and the greatest non alcoholic drink in Germany)

    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.

    Best 'Currywurst' in Berlin. Traditional Imbiss (fast food) stand at the Kurfuerstendamm. Local celebs have their weekly dosis of currywurst there. Last time met Pierre Litbarski & his girlfriend, now Tokjo, former soccer worldchampion with the German national team in Italy 1990.

    Note: Some things I truely miss in LA

    Favorite Dish: 'Curry mit Darm und Pommes Rot-Weiss'

    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

    doner kebab: the best german food is NON german food!!

    by rkearns Updated Jan 17, 2010

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    i have only read some of the replies, but yes, brandenburg gate, the holocaust memorial, and the reichstag are must sees in the mitte.

    i loved the turkish quarter. you'll get the best doner kebab of your life!! there's something about germans and their acquisition of the kebab that rivals the doner kebab of madrid and san francisco.

    anyway, i would hit that.
