Berlin is a fascinating city. It’s full of history, culture and of course it was once divided into East and West by a long wall that shadowed the city.

It also hosts a crazy nightlife and loads of pop up restaurants and street food. There is so much going on over New Years and we had a crazy few days running around the city, eating drinking, letting off fireworks and dancing to some hard core techno (not really my thing, but…when in Berlin…). Luckily we were shown the ropes by some locals who were in the know, so here are a few places definitely worth checking out…

Best Street Food:
– Mustafas – basically a kebab shop, but if you’re not into the rotating kebab meat they also do an awesome vegie version. My favourite was the ‘Gemüse Kebap Vegetarisch’. There’s something about the sauce, the chili and the spices that is just amazing! Check out their website too for a real interactive experience, they’ve even added the sounds of the traffic in the background. Awesome.

– Curry 36 – famous for their currywurst and chips. This is ‘traditional’ German fast food which is made of pork sausage cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup. It then sits on top of a bed of fries… Oh so healthy, but very delicious!

Best Restaurant:

– Lavanderia Vecchia – wandering down the back streets near train station U7 Rathaus Neukölln, we turned up a little alley way and found ourselves in an old Italian laundry. The set menu included about 8 entrees, a primeri, a secondi and of course desert. Wine was also included, all for 39 euro. Coming from London this seemed very reasonable. Each dish just melted in your mouth. The fact that we knew the chef didn’t mean any special treatment, but he did invite us back to his awesome Kreuzberg apartment for some cocktails after the meal, which made this the most memorable of nights.

Best night club:

– Horst Kreuzberg – after watching the fireworks at Brandenburg Tor, we made our way back to another small door down a dark street (I was starting to see a trend) and entered the depths of Horst. I have to admit I’d never heard of the DJs, but the music was fun and with 3 euro drinks you couldn’t go wrong on new years eve.
