2- Doner Kebab
Of course, no visit to Berlin would be complete without a traditional doner kebab
. You’ll find stalls, cafés and vans throughout the city serving them all day, and in some cases, most of the night too. For a taste that’s a little different, try K'Ups Gemüsekebap in Prenzlauer Berg which has a special kind of doner. Made with chicken and grilled vegetables, and sprinkled with feta, it’s a lovely update on this classic item. The locals love this place just as much as the tourists because it’s open until one o’clock every morning and 3 am at the weekend.
3- Vegan Food
With all this talk of meat, you’d be forgiven for thinking there were no vegan options available, but a simple Google search for vegan restaurant Berlin will return more than 40 results. Beyond this impressive group of restaurants, Berlin is also home to the first totally vegan supermarket in Europe
. And even if you’re not in a fully vegan restaurant, there are still plenty of food options to choose from. One of our favourite places for vegan snacks and lunches is Cadadia, which has numerous gluten-free salads and soups, and sandwiches too. They use only seasonal ingredients, so the menu may look completely different depending on when you visit. If you’re new to veganism and not sure what you like, Alaska Bar serves up lots of smaller plates of vegan tapas. And if you’re looking for dining excellence, Cookies Cream has a Michelin Star and regularly plays host to German celebrities.
4- Wiener schnitzel
Devouring a breaded cutlet is a rite of passage in Germany, and there’s no better place to do it than in a beer garden. The schnitzel comes cooked to deep-fried perfection, served on top of a bed of warm and tangy potato salad. A must try!
