Travitas recommends: €2.50 Currywurst @ Curry 36

Address: Mehringdamm 36, Kreuzberg, Berlin

German sausages occupy a special position in the hearts of Germans (and tourists alike). But now give it a twist – curry with sausages? You will not want to miss Curry 36 when eating currywurst the Berlin way. One of the leading stores selling currywurst, this snack bar appeals to individuals looking for an affordable and filling meal. Other Berlin specialties, such as fried burgers or meatballs, are also served here.
