German fast food is much more than just burgers and fried chicken!
Die Bratwurst (grilled sausage)
You might have heard about the famous German Bratwurst. This sausage is usually made of pork. It is grilled and often served in a bread roll with mustard or ketchup, a bit like a hot dog.
Die Currywurst (sausage in curry sauce)
Sausage with curry sauce is also very popular! This spicy snack is called a Currywurst.
Die Pommes (chips)
Chips are just as popular in Germany as they are in the UK. However, Germans would never have them with vinegar. Instead they often eat their chips covered in both ketchup and mayonnaise!
Ein halbes Hähnchen (half a grilled chicken)
Another delicious traditional German fast food snack is a halbes Hähnchen (half a grilled chicken). You often find these at markets and fairs, sold from food vans.
Der Döner (doner kebab)
Surprisingly, the most popular German fast food dish was actually invented by Turkish immigrants: the Döner Kebab, mostly shortened to Döner in German. A Pitta bread is filled with thin slices of grilled either lamb or chicken, salad and yoghurt sauce.
