Is Berlin More Than Berliner Currywurst?

Reading about Berlin in books and online, we find it is often associated with the famous Berliner Currywurst. However, I’m here to tell you that this historical city offers so much more than a simple sausage dish!
Read on to learn what other tasty eats Berlin has to offer!
What is Berlin Currywurst?

First things first, let’s delve into what this wurst actually is…

Dubbed “Germany’s Favourite Fast Food” by The Wall Street Journal, you can understand that it is, in fact, very popular. But what is it?

A fat pork sausage, boiled and served, doused in thick tomato sauce and curry powder. Always served hot with either a white bread roll or some fries.

Traditionally eaten as a “poor man’s dish”, the pork sausage that swims in curry-tomato sauce, is now eaten by all. Well, except those who don’t eat meat.

I won’t lie to you, it’s tasty. It’s something you might crave after a hard winter’s day and you just want something hot, salty, a little spicy and filling. We can all relate. But my message here is that food doesn’t stop with the Berlin currywurst. We’ve got so much to share with you, and I’m about to tell you why.

Berlin is Home to Global Flavours

Germany’s capital city is home to flavours from around the world. Why? Because of immigration, my friends. We host a population of over 3.5 million people, and in this midst you’ll find many different nationalities. (Yes, we have a lot of Germans here too!) Topping the immigration list is Turkey and Russia. So you’ll find food influences from these countries here in Berlin, and their flavours are gooood. Immigration doesn’t stop there, however!

On our Best Currywurst Berlin, we taste the cuisine of Korea, Lebanon, mixed in with traditional German food too! Plus so much more, but we can’t spoil the surprises. Our 4 Reasons you will Love Berlin covers a whole other mix as well.
