LardButty in Berlin – Breakfast at Oranium

Berliner Frühstück # 1 of 3 – sausage fest

“Berliners know how to do breakfast”, says my guide book.

Berlin has a reputation for its breakfast culture, often a social event, with breakfast being served in many places until 4pm. And I’m eager to find out.

Our first breakfast here is at a restaurant recommended by local Mitte resident D, Oranium, a high-ceilinged, spacious venue on Oranienburger Strasse opposite the beautiful old post office.

Oranium restaurant – high ceilings + spacious

Being in Germany, it seems only right and proper that the two of us who are tourists head straight for the Oranium Berlin specials: sausages.

K chooses the sausage trio – Berliner currywurst, Thüringer rostbratwurst and small Nürnberger sausages skewered with leek, onions and peppers fresh from the grill, served with red and yellow curry dip, BBQ sauce, and oven fresh baguette @ €9.10, while I order Nante Eckensteher – small Berliner currywürsts served with crispy French fries and cole slaw with dill sour cream at €8.90.

D orders ‘Strammer Max’: smoked ham with two fried eggs on whole-wheat bread garnished with tomatoes and pickles at €7.20.

Such a good shout.
