Hi, I will be travelling to Berlin and staying there for a week with my GF for NYE and the first week of January. We will be staying @ The Hilton across from Gendarmenmarkt. Neither of us have ever been to Berlin before so we are both n00bs to Berlin.
We are looking to try diff kinds of foods, from quick and cheap grab and go type spots to more casual places, to more mid ranged priced kinds of places.
We would like to try a bit of everything from some traditional German food, curry-wurst & schnitzels, to Turkish food, to burgers and pizza, Asian inspired food, breakfast spots. Whatever, as long as it's good and quality. Are there any trendy types of food in Berlin or places to go too? Any must have meals or drinks specific to Berlin?
I went through a few threads on here and through some other searching I have found these potential spots for potential eat-a-bilities ;)
Lutter & Wegner
Renger - Patzsch
KaDeWe food hall (any spots in particular that would be good here?)
How does my list of options look so far? Is there anything that I should perhaps avoid off of my list? And conversely, is there anything I should add to the list based on where I am located?
One other thing, can we expect that mostly everything will be closed on New Years day? What about the rest of the first week of January?
