What you'll do
See how global influences have brought their own unique flavours to the city’s cuisine, creating a deliciously diverse range of dishes which your local will share with you, taking you to the best markets, street food stalls, beer halls, cafes and local eateries to try each one.
Discover the city’s street food culture, tasting delicious street eats like köfte and currywürst as you stroll through the area, admiring its street art along the way as well as tasting other well loved local dishes like baklava, eisbein (pork knuckle) and schnitzel.
In this bohemian area, as well as tasting the dishes that Berliners love, you’ll be able to experience a beer hall like a local and see how these traditional bars are part of the local culture as you enjoy a stein of regional beer or lager with your local.
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, interests and the food you love so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your Local Host will recommend places and make a choice together with you, then he or she will take care of booking a table at your chosen place.
Your Local Host may also suggest pre-booking a place for a drink before dinner to stimulate your appetite and awaken your taste buds.
During the experience, you will chat to your Local Host who will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.

Eat like a local in East Berlin | BerlinReview by: Serena G
I love doing foodie activities whenever I visit a new city and this did not disappoint! It was so much more relaxed than other 'food tours' I've done and I discovered places I never would have by myself. My Local Sasha was so lovely and and the food itself was soooooo good! (And I learnt there is more to more to Germany than sausages!). See for yourself :D

Perfect for picky children!
Travelling with picky children, food experiences have not always been successful in the past but this CityUnscripted experience totally understood the struggles of travelling with fussy eaters! Our guide was confronted with a vegetarian mum, two picky children and a husband obsessed with trying the best 'Frankfurter'. And she did it! The whole experience was flexible to our needs and tastes so we only what we were interested in trying. There were no 'set tastings' meaning no food (or money!) was wasted but we still got to try lots of different food famous in the city. Would definitely recommend to any families travelling with fussy eaters!
