Eat on the street in Berlin

April 20, 2009 by  

In Berlin there is street-food to be found at all the major tourist hot-spots. When you’re about town sightseeing, the best thing is to refuel en route, then collapse in a cafe when you run out of energy.

We found that the underpasses of the larger stations such as Alexanderplatz were also a good place to find inexpensive sandwiches and ethnic food to go. But the Berlin fast-food classic is the currywurst – a spicy sausage bathed in curry-flavoured ketchup sauce served with fries with mayo. You’ll find curry wurst stands all over the city and every local has their favourite.

We fueled up at Kurfurstendamm just outside the Kaiser Wlihelm Memorial Church where there were a range of food stands to choose from and places to sit and watch the street artists and break-dancers. The teen princesses settled for crepes, their food of choice when they weren’t snacking on Haagen Dazs Ice cream or sneaking into Burger King. My friend Wendy queued for the Curry wurst which was cut into chunks and smothered in the hot curry ketchup. I am a little more wary of processed meat products and decided to try the Thai curry and noodles which I enjoyed.

Then the grownups and teens went our separate ways for a couple of hours. Wendy and I reflected on the beautiful blue glass in the Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church then visited the gourmet food floor at nearby department store, KaDeWe to buy a few foodie gifts and sip a fresh fruit smoothie. The teen princesses , meanwhile, hit the shops to see what how many high street bargains they could get for the euros we’d given them as pocket money.

I did try a bit of that curry wurst and it wasn’t at all bad – definitely worth tasting at least one when you’re out and about in Berlin.

This short video clip will give you the idea about curry wurst.
