So much so that there are even dishes specific to Berlin or mostly eaten in Berlin. For example Currywurtz, Berlin Weisser. Berlin, which has a very rich culture in street tastes, is also rich in other tastes. We have compiled a short and concise list of street delicacies that you must taste in Berlin. We hope you find time to taste them all.

Germans know this delicacy as “doughnut with marmalade filling”. It is pancake dough (fannkuchen) as a dough, but there are also many versions with chocolate sauce, coconut, pistachio and cream.

The situation of the cake presented in this way in Turkey is slightly different. In patisseries in our country, it is sold with whipped cream, chocolate or mocha.
4- Doner Kebab
Turks and Germans have always been together since the 18th century. That's why our cultures are intertwined. What we eat and drink has changed over time. The Germans also recognized the doner kebab with us. They carried it to their own country and started to produce there. You can find at least one revolving hall on almost every street in Berlin. Although its name and appearance are generally similar to doner kebab in Turkey, it is served in a way adapted to Germany. Especially after midnight, people coming out of bars and nightclubs flock to doner-kebab halls to feast their stomachs. Although those who run these places are usually Turks, there are also places that are run by Arabs and Germans.

If you happen to be in Berlin, we recommend you to taste this delicious dish.
6- Berliner Weisse
It is a summer drink special to Berlin, consisting of wheat beer blended with raspberry or waldmeister (forest filament) syrup. It is essentially a type of beer.
