DRINK\r\nCordobar\u00a0(pictured\u200b):\u00a0This must-visit wine bar attained cult status within a year\u00a0of opening. Taste delicious German or Austrian wines by the glass, or order from the phonebook-sized wine menu. It lists everything from the latest \u00fcber-cool Riesling wunderkinds to precious, auction-only vintages. The snacks are great, too. Try the black pudding pizza with a German Pinot Noir.\r\n\r\nTausend:\u00a0This clubby cocktail bar is hard to find, but totally worth the hunt. Behind an unmarked, battered steel door under the Friedrichstrasse\u00a0railway bridge, you\u2019ll find blinking strobe lights, an international clientele and some of the city\u2019s best mixologists.\r\n\r\nWeinbund:\u00a0An association of the city's best independent wine shops, Weinbund hosts fun, educational tasting events citywide. For grab-and-go bottles, head to Paasburg\u2019s for German gems (and its unique locale: a cobblestone yard in an old former factory). For some of the best natural wines in the world, head to Viniculture.\r\n\r\n\u2014Anne Krebiehl, MW\r\n\r\n\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDINE\r\nHot Spot:\u00a0This unassuming Chinese restaurant is a temple of mature German Riesling, and winemakers often pop in whenever they\u2019re in the\u00a0capital. The cooking is subtle and authentic, just like the mature, well-priced bottles they serve. The tea-smoked duck is not to be missed.\r\n\r\nMarkthalle\u00a0Neun:\u00a0Located in edgy\u00a0Kreuzberg, this indoor gourmet food market offers a huge selection of fresh, artisanal food, and a giant selection of both beer and wine. Best for groups and sharing, eat your way through the smoked fish options, slurp down some oysters, or try the popular pulled pork sandwich. For dessert, savor the amazing\u00a0housemade\u00a0chocolate bars.\r\n\r\nNobelhart\u00a0&\u00a0Schmutzig:\u00a0This is award-winning sommelier Billy Wagner\u2019s first solo restaurant. Modern and\u00a0porgressive, Wagner uses fresh regional produce and employs time-honored preserving methods such as pickling and salting. The German-centric wine list is one of Berlin\u2019s best.\r\n\r\nCurrywurst (pictured):\u00a0Berlin\u2019s iconic on-the-go snack is an acquired taste\u2014a grilled frankfurter-style sausage covered in curry-spiced ketchup. The sausage is available on almost every street corner, often served with French fries. If truly seduced by the stuff, you can visit the city\u2019s Currywurst Museum.
