BARke (Currywurst)

Hello everybody,

today’s recommendation is something special in a way that none of our previously presented restaurants have been. The Currywurst ( which can be translated as curried sausage) portion of the BARke is a rather small part of the actual business. Still, I decided to inform you on this part of it, other then the bigger cocktail-bar part. The reason for that is the great accessibility of the booth which is at the Doberaner Platz and opens at different times of the day – and early night.

The joint itself is not that prominently presented at Doberaner Platz, but it is easy to notice, with always a handful of people gathering in front of it.



This joint offfers up to 7 different degrees of spiciness and one or two ‘specials’ that are not on the menu, but worth checking out if you want to eat the hottest currywurst of your life. It also has a nice selection of different Germany based sodas.


Is it easy to find the place?


Good location for future plans?


Quality and Friendliness of staff?


Cost / Performance-Ratio?


Comfortable ambience?




This is one of the best currywurst-joints I have seen in a long time. The staff is friendly, you dont have to wait long, you can hang out and enjoy the currywurst and drink something refreshing for a good price. I recommend to start with the lowest degree of spiciness and then gradually order a hotter variation, so you dont overestimate your tongue. Good look.


Overall Score

  1. Currywurst was invented by Herta Heuwer in Berlin in 1949 as an affordable but filling meal for the people of Berlin at a time when food was in short supply.

    When you order your Currywurst you can ask for it skin on “Currywurst mit Darm” or without skin “Currywurst ohne Darm”. Sausage casings were in short supply in the Soviet-controlled side of the city. If you grew up in East Berlin, you like sausage without skin; if you grew up in West Berlin, you probably prefer sausage with skin.

    I’m not from Berlin, I prefer Currywurst without skin and in my opinion the best place to get it is from Fritz & Co (a Currywurst stall) on Wittenberg Platz in the Schöneberg area of Berlin.
