Food and Drink - Berlin
Last Updated: 7th Jun 2012
No matter where you travel in Europe you will find local specialities and when it comes to food, the local favorite in Berlin is the curry wurst. ‘Currywurst’ is simply a sliced sausage with tomato and curry powder. Street stalls are all over the city and often go by such names a ‘Check Point Curry’. Like the rest of Germany many menus feature pork products with chicken, dumplings and loads of potatoes cooked in a variety of ways. The city also lends its name to the jelly-filled doughnut known throughout Germany as a ‘Berliner’.
Like the rest of Germany beer is an important part of the culture with the most widely available being Berliner Pilsner. You’re more like to find yourself sipping on a cocktail or dropping a shot or two if you head out to a bar or club.
