Embracing change through travel and culinary discovery

Berlin

MUSTAFAS KEBAB

We were told that you could wait up to 3 hours to get a kebab here because they are that good! Luckily we only had to wait for 30 minutes but these guys are churning out kebabs day and well in to the late night and they are definitely worth the wait. Grilled veg and tasty meat in a large pocket or wrap fro only 3 euro 20.

CURRY 36

We were told that eating a curry wurst in Berlin is an absolute must, if you didn’t it would be like going to Italy and not eating pasta, so we after much anticipation we lined up at curry 36 which is apparently the best place for curry wurst in all of Berlin. Then we realised that curry wurst is just sausages with ketchup and a sprinkling of curry powder on top. I must say they were pretty tasty but nothing too exciting, they would be great on the way home after a night out. Probably worth a try if your in the city.

THE TURKISH MARKETS

This was one of the best markets I think I ave ever been to. We went on the Friday and I think they also run another day of the week too. Loads of fresh produce for far cheaper than you find at the supermarket and of course some beautiful and tasty turkish specialties to try as well. Theres not only food, some clothes, jewelry, accessories and fabrics can be found here too. My favorite was the turkish delight and a local honey company that does different flavored honeys, I went with fig and walnut but there are heaps to chose from.

STREET FOOD THURSDAY – MARKTHALLE NEUN

On a Thursday night you can find this hall and the road side in front absolutely packed with satisfied foodies. A huge range of local and ethnic food stalls are set up in this hall and here you can get dinner in korea one week and head on over to Argentina the next. A foodies heaven there is so much choice here, almost too much! I went with a korean ramen burger with kimchi, the buns were made out of ramen noodles and sat on top of a delicious beef patty complimented by miso mayonnaise, ketchup and kimchi.
