WHERE’S THE ICONIC BERLIN FOOD?

Where Berlin - - BERLIN MANUAL -

Cur­ry­wurst and döner should be on ev­ery Berlin visi­tor’s to-do list, but with all the stands in town, it’s hard to pick the best. For one of the city’s most fa­mous cur­ry­wurst stalls, visit Konnopke’s Im­biss (Schön­hauser Allee 44b) in Pren­zlauer Berg, whose sausages have kept Ber­lin­ers happy for al­most a cen­tury. Get to know the spicy wurst even bet­ter at the Cur­ry­wurst Mu­seum (www. cur­ry­wurst­mu­seum.com), ex­plor­ing the his­tory and sig­nif­i­cance of Berlin’s most fa­mous culi­nary ex­port. Though of more re­cent in­ven­tion, the döner ke­bab also en­joys a re­spectable his­tory. Cre­ated by a Turk­ish im­mi­grant in the 1970s to pro­vide guest work­ers with a fast lunch, it quickly be­came West Berlin’s street food of choice. At Im­ren (Bopp­str. 10) you can be sure you’re in for the real thing, as it’s smack in the mid­dle of the Turk­ish part of Kreuzberg. The shop is nearly al­ways full, owing its fame to its dön­ers’ ten­der, per­fectly sea­soned meat and fresh bread. To try both Berlin fa­mous de­lights in one go, Mehring­damm is your one-stop spot, with Mustafa’s chicken and veg­etable döner on one side of the road (look for the long line of peo­ple as you exit the U-Bahn) and the fa­mous Curry36 di­rectly op­po­site.
