The Ultimate Guide to Street Food in Berlin
How Berlin feasts its way around the world
Berlin’s street food scene is constantly evolving. Demand is increasing, there’s much more on offer, and the number of events is just exploding. These include strictly street food markets such as the Bite Club on the Arena grounds or Street Food Thursday in Markthalle Neun.
But new markets both indoors and out are embracing the trend with small food stalls and trendy street food trucks side-by-side the traditional market stalls.
