To those interested in food found in Germany, hopefully this blog will provide some answers. First things first is the döner. This is a dish that originated in Turkey, but someone found it’s place of being one of the most popular dishes in Germany. The döner consists of kebab meat in a flatbread with salad and sauce. Some places also allow for fries to be included with the döner, either in the sandwich, or on the side. I had a döner the first day I arrived in Berlin because it was the dish recommended by both Geza and Poldi. I had actually that it would be skewers because that’s what comes to mind when I think of a kebab, but I was so wrong. I didn’t go with the döner sandwich, but opted for a box instead. Since the first day, I’ve had döners more than once, and with different combinations. Not only is the price cheap, but it’s also delicious.
Next up are these hot dogs that we only found in Berlin. The hot dog place is called OiShii Hot Dog, and it combines hot dogs with Japanese food, such as tempura and fish roe. This place was cheap and delicious, and right next door to our apartment in Berlin. I honestly wish they would expand to the United States, because it’s just so good. This was also a place where I had a lot of Radlers, which is a German beer that has a lemon flavor to it.
These are definitely the two that I would recommend the most for people traveling to Germany. For those who have dietary restrictions, some restaurants and grocery stores sell vegan food. Bread is also a big part of life in Germany, and bakeries and small stores have bread that fit the restrictions of every person. I honestly thought I would get tired of bread because I’m someone who doesn’t eat a lot of bread to begin with, but it was not that bad. For those who want to eat fast food from America for whatever reason, I have come across several McDonald’s, KFCs, Pizza Huts, Burger Kings, and so on. I would still recommend to try the food of the country you are in, but there’s always times where you feel like eating fast food.
