When I found out that one of the main food markets in Berlin has a street food night which takes place on a Thursday night and that I also would be in Berlin on a Thursday night, it was sliiightly obvious where I'd be heading. Inevitable almost. Heading to a food market is becoming a bit of a habit - both abroad and in London - and so I knew we'd have to find time for Berlin's offering too. Apparently, Berlin is becoming a bit of a haven for foodies and although I wouldn't quite put myself in that category, it was still worth checking out.
After quite a long walk around taking in all the different options - and believe me, there were many - we decided on getting some veal ribs from a stall. I wish I could remember the name of the stall, but there were many different meaty options, and the ribs were pretty good, although I did feel a little ripped off by the price of them. We washed it all down with a beer from Heidenpeters, who sold a small selection of craft beers - a little bit of a cliche for an event like this I know, but definitely worth it.
Had I been being a little bit naughtier, I would have definitely grabbed some bread from Sironi. I'm a sucker for a massive loaf of crusty bread and it would have been perfect. There was a bit of window lusting over the cakes in Aunt Benny too.
Honestly, if I had to pick, I'd pick Borough Market every time. But I suppose I would say that! Don't let me deter you, though, if you're in Berlin on a Thursday night it's definitely worth a wander down there to see what's on offer and to experience something that real Berliners do rather than just a tourist trap.
Have you been? Would you go?
