Through my varied travels, I have seen the rivalry food can cause in a country. In Central Asia, chefs fight over plov; in Japan it is ramen noodles; but in Germany it is the currywurst. You are probably asking yourself, what the heck is currywurst? Well, if you grill a sausage to perfection, chop it up, then cover it in ketchup and curry powder, you have the number one snack food in Germany. The food is something short of an obsession: cities fight over its origins, chefs take their recipes to the grave and entrepreneurs devote hours to the proper layout of their stall. I have only been in Berlin 3 days and you must be wondering how I know all this. Well, to drive home the national sentiment of the sausage, a museum has been erected near the famous "Check Point Charlie."
To be honest, I love this museum more than I like the snack. It’s fully interactive, informative and a hell of a lot of fun. For a city where a museum runs 10 euros a ticket, a budget traveler has to be picky. But in my opinion this museum is well worth it! As an added bonus you get a portion sized serving of currywurst at the end to complete the experience! Bon appetite!
