Despite the dour image, German food is good. It’s really good in fact, and there are some pretty great culinary experiences to be had in Berlin — fitting every taste and every pocket. Because of the ethnic diversity you can easily find any cuisine you’re hungering for. Thai? Sure. Indian? Absolutely. There’s even plenty of German dishes on offer. The best option for traditional German food though, is from the Germans themselves. Withlocals matches up travelers with locals who provide authentic German cooking. You have the opportunity to enjoy home-cooking in a family home and experience the local culture up-close.
If you’re looking for street food there are plenty of stalls selling the must-try Berlin currywurst — essentially a smoked and boiled sausage served in bread and layered liberally with curry sauce. Tasty! The other item that has become a staple in Berlin (and German) street food is the döner kebab (which is of course Turkish). You’ll find beef, chicken and falafel variants available in most areas of the city. Each district of Berlin definitely has its own vibe — with restaurants and cafes to match.
If you’re feeling really adventurous — why not try lunch at a workers canteen?
