the best Döner in Berlin

On our way back in from Dresden we stopped at Mustafa's Gemüse Kebap for dinner. There is always a line outside this place. There were probably about 15-20 people in front of us. We'd heard a lot about it, though, so we figured it was probably worth the wait. And it was. So good! They put mixed vegetables in...potatoes and peppers...feta cheese and a squeeze of lemon on top. Whoa! Fancy!
By the way, they have a crazy website ...for a little Döner stand!

While we were in Dresden we ate a lot of German food (i.e. a lot of meat). Below are some pictures. Traditional for Saxony is red cabbage and Klöße with Sauerbraten (marinated roast beef). Klöße are potato dumplings made by combining grated raw potatoes with mashed potatoes, making a ball and boiling them. The texture is very unique: a bit gummy, soft and squishy, which soaks up the gravy/sauce of the Sauerbraten. Elisabeth really liked them and ordered them a couple of times. It's amazing how inventive these Germans get with their potatoes... :)
