Berlin, my friends, is a city of many flavours. From traditional German fare to international delights, the culinary scene in Berlin is diverse and vibrant. As a self-proclaimed foodie, I had the pleasure of exploring the best places to eat and the must-try dishes in this remarkable city.

And so, if you are the type to travel like a local, than this guide to Berlin’s food will fit neatly into a list of the best things to do in Berlin. Enjoy.

Currywurst From Curry 36

First on the list is Curry 36. This street food vendor has been serving up Berlin’s classic dish, currywurst, since 1980. The juicy grilled pork sausage, smothered with a tangy tomato-based sauce spiced with curry powder, is a perfect quick meal to grab on the go.


Next up, Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap, where you’ll find the best doner kebab in Berlin. This popular food stall serves a unique version of the doner kebab, with fresh vegetables, herbs, and spices all wrapped up in a warm pita bread. Trust me, the long queues outside Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap are worth it.

Another must-visit is Hasir, a popular Turkish restaurant in Berlin. Their signature dish, Turkish pizza or Lahmacun, is a light and flavourful dish perfect for a quick lunch or snack. The thin, crispy dough is topped with a spicy tomato sauce, minced meat, and herbs, making it a tasty explosion of flavours.

Traditional German Feast

For those looking for traditional German fare, Zur Letzten Instanz is a must-visit. This historic restaurant has been serving up schnitzel since 1621, and they do it perfectly. The crispy-on-the-outside, juicy-on-the-inside schnitzel is served with a side of potatoes and vegetables, making it the ultimate comfort food on a chilly Berlin day.

How About Some Asian In Berlin?

If you’re in the mood for something different, Monsieur Vuong’s Vietnamese pho is not to be missed. The rich and fragrant broth, combined with tender meat and rice noodles, creates a perfect harmony of flavors. The atmosphere at Monsieur Vuong is bustling and trendy, making it an ideal lunch spot.

Some Of The Best Burgers Around

Last but certainly not least, The Bird serves up some of the best burgers in Berlin. The juicy patties, fresh toppings, and homemade sauces are served in generous portions alongside crispy fries. To top it off, The Bird has an extensive selection of craft beers to accompany your burger.

In conclusion, Berlin’s culinary scene has something for everyone, and these seven food destinations should be on every foodie’s list. Trust me; you won’t be disappointed.
