I’ve been telling you that what I like most about Berlin are its absurd things you find off the beaten tracks, like the Thai Market. What is equally interesting in terms of foreign food, is the Intermarket Stolitschniy in Lichtenberg.
There are many Turkish markets in Berlin, but none might be as known as the one at Maybachufer in Kreuzberg. Tuesdays and Fridays innumerable vendors set up their stands along the streets to sell everything from petty wares to glitter shoes.
There’s nothing like a delicious Bratwurst on a great summer night. A favorite is Tannenwälder Wurstbraterei with their small booths offering dainty Bratwurst and an insanely huge variety of Senf (mustard) at Sunday’s flea markets in Mauerpark and Thursday’s farmer’s market at Kollwitzplatz, Prenzlauer Berg.
You get a falafel at literally every corner of Berlin these days, still, a vendor doing it the delicate and fresh way is rather hard to find and I want to share one of my favorites: Mo’s Imbiss in Kreuzberg.
One of the biggest and most well-known urban gardening projects in Berlin is based in Kreuzberg and called Prinzessinnengärten. It’s a beautiful place that transformed a former urban wasteland at Moritzplatz (once the location of the departmentstore Wertheim) into a prosperous and flourishing garden.
