Eating At Shavi’z Berlin Street Food : Ich Liebe Pommes Und Würstchen And Spanish Lizards
It’s not very often that we come across a foreign food outlet that stays true to it’s origin. It may taste good, but it’s not really that authentic. This is not the case with ShaVi’s Berlin Street Food. Now, Germans are known for their quality and aesthetics, just look at Volkswagen and Mercedes and you’ll know. They are really good, and so are the items of ShaVi’s. We were also informed that all the ingredients that went into making the dishes were farmed and prepared here in Nepal privately, a fact that just added to the scrumptiousness. We just regret passing on the beer because we had to drive, then again, the food was more than just “excellent” to fill the void.
BERLIN CURRYWURST WITH FRIES AND MAYO (Rs. 450)
Right off the bat, the dish looks like it’s just a bunch of fries with sausage and condiments on a fancy paper bowl. Boy, were we wrong. When you bite into the fries, the potato is astonishingly creamy inside and contrastingly crispy on the outside. The currywurst is probably the highlight of the dish. Regardless of how simple it is, it is the tastiest and the most savory sausage we have tried till date. You have the option of going either chicken or pork here. We suggest pork; more flavor, more power.
CHURROS (RS. 200, RS. 50 EACH FOR DIPS OF WHITE CHOCOLATE AND DARK CHOCOLATE)
Also known as “Spanish Lizards” in some provinces, Churros are a popular dish in Spain, France, Portugal and the areas they colonized. History aside, they taste like heaven in a crunchy star shaped stick. They come sprinkled with cocaine (of course, not actual cocaine, powdered sugar) and just one bite will get you addicted. When combined with the dipping sauce of white chocolate and dark chocolate… man… We hope us not being able to complete the sentence will explain the magnitude of the tastiness. It surely busted our sweet tooth.
