Guten tag everyone, let’s start our German journey
German people eat a lot of sausages. This sentence sounds so cliché? Yes okay but it’s true. There are a lot of different type of sausages in Germany but the most famous sausage dish is obviously the curry wurst. Oh yes, this is THE berlin’s delicacy and a great snack. This famous german snack consists in great sausage slices topped with a delicious mix of ketchup and curry powder.
You would find curry wurst spots everywhere in the city. I’ve been to Curry 36 shops to order a curry wurst (picture below). It is possible that you would need to queue up a bit but it’s very fast. I wasn’t disappointed at all, the taste was really goood.

- Price of the curry wurst: less than 2€
Alert, Alert, Alert: Best kebab of my life
Ok I’m not that old yet, but believe me I ate the best kebab of my life in Berlin. I heard a lot about mustafa’s kebab shop in Berlin and I couldn’t miss this opportunity to try it. By the way, the kebab or kebap as we know it, was invented by a turkish immigrants in Berlin in the 1970’s (thanks to this guy, you’re a true legend). To have one kebab at Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap you will certainly need to queue up… and it could be long… BUT it is totally worth it to me. So, I had a classic Kebab sandwich that totally blow my mind, it was f*cking awesomeee. The grilled meat was so delicious with some grilled/fresh vegetables, chesse and a special yogurty type of sauce (picture below). Big up to Mustafa who is still making some kebab in his shop, it was the best kebab of my life and I hope it will soon become the best of your life.

EIS aka ice cream is quite a big deal for germans
Hell yeah, in Germany you would find a bunch of places where you can eat ice cream. These spots are known as Eiscafe throughout the country, it literally means Ice cream coffee. Walking randomly in Berlin, we found this nice and very unique ice cream place called California Pops. This ice cream shops offers you an incredibly variety of ice cream flavors. I had one strawberry and one peanut butter/chocolate (amazinnng) ice cream pops and it was really nice and original (picture below). Moreover, the girl who served us was really nice and explained us everything.
