From the city’s ubiquitous ‘Currywurst’ outlets to the increasing number of Vietnamese and Korean joints popping up, Berlin’s diverse population is celebrated in its fast flavours. And did you know that the good old Doner Kebab, that global post-pub staple, was actually developed in Berlin as a simplified version of a Turkish specialty? Fact! Here are the ONE80º Hostel Berlin team’s top five favourite fast food outlets.
The Schönbrunn Restaurant awaits you in the historic Volkspark Friedrichshain (people’s park), one of the loveliest park oases in Berlin. Here you will be served an outstanding selection of Austrian-Mediterranean cuisine. Check-patterned tablecloths, comfortable chairs or the typical beer bench – you will find a beer garden on an Italian theme here from April to September. You will have a hard time selecting between original Italian wood-fired oven pizza, pasta and salads.
