Start your day with a cool Turkish breakfast filled with Simit, Sujuk, eggs and a cold Ayran from La Femme.
After a long walk around Mitte, you’ll be ready for another Turkish delicacy: the Kumpir. You need to get it at Vadi Frühstückshaus, and it’s basically a baked potato stuffed with everything you can think of. Pasta? Yes. Chili? Yes. Corn? Obviously. Plus, it will cost you less than 5€.
And then, you’ll need a hamburger. Because Berlin is actually the place to go for burgers. Go to BBI, and you’ll get one for less than 10€.
One of the best things about living in Berlin is living amongst an extreme coffee and cake culture. There is nothing more perfect than ending the day with a sip of espresso and a slice of perfect, amazing carrot cake, or chocolate cake, or any cake really. Berlin has more cakes than you’ve ever thought to imagine. For the best coffee/cake combos, check out Five Elephant and Two and Two.
Berlin was split in two and the division is actually pretty easy to see. The west is mainly Turkish with its delicious kumpirs and döners. But on the other side, there’s the east. Over there, you’ll find the authentic Vietnamese and Thai restaurants. So make sure you’re on the correct side for the best food experience, okay? And of course Berlin has its exceptions, for example the best Taiwanese Beef House you’ll find in the west. Go figure.
Let’s start drinking some beer. German beer, to be precise. Some say it’s the best part of German culture, and they’re right. Every späti you go to will have more than 50 choices. And if a convenience store has all that, imagine what you’ll find in the bars. Bierfabrik, Augustiner, Beck’s, Schöfferhofer…just go to Franken Bar and you’ll see what I mean.
When the drunken monster inside of you is screaming for food, it’s time to take to the street for the iconic Berliner Curry Wurst. It’s a German sausage covered in spicy ketchup and curry, served with a side of french fries, and it’s everything you need after a night of drinking.
