Warm Sundays in Berlin are mostly spent outside, soaking up the sun and taking advantage of the rarity that is warm weather. However, we recently discovered that there’s a way to get some of that much needed Vitamin D while binge-ing on some amazing street food. All you have to do is hop on a train or bike to Kulturbrauerei on a Sunday. There, you’ll find some of the city’s best food trucks all parked in one spot.
Built in the 1800’s, this complex used to be the Schultheiss Brewery. These days, it’s a place fit for East Berlin’s cool crowd. With hip offices, a cinema, and being the ever Instagrammable event space, Kulturbrauerei has become a must-visit destination in Prenzlauer Berg.
The best thing about it though? Definitely street food Sundays wherein the old brewery transforms into foodie heaven. From food trucks selling the hippest purple burger in town, to stalls selling Asian dishes that actually taste Asian for a change; there’s something for everyone.
Of course, there are also the local breweries selling craft beer and ones that sell bottles bearing commercial labels. What’s not to love?
And if that isn’t hipster enough for you, there’s even a Photoautomat – one of Berlin’s famous, vintage photo booths – inside the complex.
Food we Loved
With so many options, what should you be ordering? Don’t worry, we’ve got you. We tried some of the most sought after food over the weekend. We’re also glad to report that not one dish let us down.
You’ve been hearing and reading about Filipino food being the next big thing. But have you actually tried it?
Asian is in Fashion
We were pleasantly surprised to see food truck Tapa Girl at Kultubrauerei with their Ube Burgers.
Made of purple yam, these healthy buns go unexpectedly well with a juicy cut of beef.
Not to mention that one of the variants comes with grilled beef fillet marinated in anatto, soya, honey, and lime. And then seasoned with a peppery cheese sauce.
Not a meat eater? Vegetarian and vegan options are also available.
And since we’re on the topic of Asian food, we need to talk about the crispy, mouthwatering Korean fried chicken. There’s only one, unnamed stall selling it so it would be pretty hard to miss.
If you, by any chance skip this because of the long line, you’ll most likely regret it too. Both the soja (soya) and spicy variants are worth a try, and will go well with any type of beer served by the local craft brewers in this market.
After all, Chimaek or Chicken and Beer did not become a global trend for nothing.
