Just recovering from my day of food, we decided to stretch our legs on a self-directed walking tour of Berlin.
We walked down to the East Side Gallery, stopping for some Currywurst on the way… these were the best we found in Berlin. It’s cart is right next to the start of the gallery. Have one for me when you are there 🙂
We planned to meet our hosts out the front. We arrived to find it wasn’t a specific building as such, but an outdoor gallery. The longest open air gallery in fact. Here remains 1,316m of the wall that divided East & West Berlin, covered in several pieces of artwork and some senseless graffiti by complete tools. Who defaces such an important piece of history?
There was a sea of tourists taking 1,843,576 photos. Yes me included. No way we were finding our friends. Fail.
Feeling hungry, as I often do, we hopped on over to Mogg & Melzer. Recommended to us by a local. Here you’ll find an uber trendy deli style cafe with bench seats and a menu with English translation – winning!
Although I will warn you, the restaurant is soooo trendy, that the staff won’t serve you. Be prepared to ask for a menu (several times), beg to place a order and don’t even get me started on trying to get the bill.
Not that I would complain about a free lunch, but if I walked out in a huff, somehow I don’t think they would send me on my merry way.
The excellent food, just made up for the poor service.
The night continues, and I promise you it’s not just ALL about food.
