Trying German Street Food in Berlin

One of the things that you can enjoy whilst travelling is the pleasure of tasting new foods, that are usually unavailable in your home country. I had the marvellous experience of visiting Germany for a few days-fantastic days, I must say. For starters, German people are lovely and willing to help (that is the impression I got from them), they made me feel like one of them. Walking around the streets in Berlin we tasted many foods from the street vendors. Like good travellers, we decided that we needed to try the famous German sausages since we've heard so much about them. The first impression was what a sausage! :D We weren't disappointed by the flavour, texture or size, they were absolutely delicious, especially the ones they call "Currywurst", that is a pork sausage (Bratwurst) seasoned with a curry ketchup.
It is impossible to think about Germany without thinking about pretzels! There are so many variations when it comes to shape and filling, for instance, there are pretzels with fillings of lettuce or meat, amongst others.
And something very particular that I bet most people (me included), we didn't' know about the kebab: as it happens, in Berlin, almost in every corner you can buy this deliciousness perfect for when you go partying and feel like eating something fatty: doner kebab. One might think this is a traditional Turkish dish, but we were told by some locals that the recipe for the doner kebab was brought by Turkish immigrants and developed in Berlin, making Berlin the cradle of the doner kebab. This snack consists of bread (usually pita bread), slices of juicy meat, salad leaves, and you can even add cheese, but the star is definitely the meat: it has such a special and unique taste. Besides all this goodness, the doner kebab is very cheap! I'd like you to picture this dish with a good German beer! What else can you ask in life?
If you go to Germany, don't forget to stop by the Bavarian region, and one of its more important cities: Munich. If you go there, please do yourself a favour and go to a "Biergarten", so you can have an idea of what a "beer garden" is, oh yes, it is the paradise for beer lovers like myself! Nothing better than going to the Biergarten, ask for some delish German sausages, some chicken and a litter of beer. These places are usually outdoors and have a wide variety of beers to choose from. My best advice for you is to look around until you find the one you like the most :P
I am so in love with Germany that I could speak about it the whole day, but as a traveller and foodie, I tell you: please go visit Germany! It is a wonderful opportunity to get to know their exceptional food, history, architecture, culture, nightlife. For all these reasons Germany is one of my top 5 fave countries!
