Hallo Berlin Cart… back in business!

For German sausage freaks, July 2006 was a terrible month.  Not only did you have to watch your Football (aka Soccer) team lose in the Semi-Finals of the World Cup in their home country- but you had to suffer the indignity of not being able to drown your sorrows in a delicious bratwurst during lunch time.

Well, there’s good news.  As of yesterday, the Hallo Berlin Cart is back and operating at it’s usual spot on 54th st. & 5th Ave.  Back from their annual July trip to Germany, the Babiel Brothers’ cart is back open (as usual) from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm and serving up the best German sausage Midtown has to offer.  Choose from 10 different kinds of sausages, in all sorts of different combos. 

Our favorites (for no other reason then our love for the pictures of Kennedy & Mao Zedong): The Dictator or Democracy Special.  Dictator special… you get no choice.  One Berliner frank, one bratwurst.  Topped with German fries, cabbage, onions and crusty bread for 6 bucks.  The Democracy Special…  your choice (obviously) of any two wurst, covered in German fries, cabbage, onions and 2 pieces of Bavarian meatballs.  Served with crusty bread for $8.

I’ll save my review of the cart, and the +/- for another time…  see you on line this afternoon!  After all, what could be better then eating sausage, outside in 97 degree heat!

    OMG -Your blog is a godsend. The food in this area sucks.
    As an fyi – Daisy May’s is tasty – but spendy.

  2. rats! I had a bet with some people that you would be lunching at the Mister Softee today.

    always excellent info; you are a prince among men.

    A colleague just went up there a few minutes ago and couldn’t find it. Is it still there? He asked one of the vendors on the street and the guy said they are no longer there. Update?

    i encountered the same problem — i’m now full of mediocre halal lamb instead of delicious sausage!

    It was there today… 54st a little west of 5th avenue.

    NEIN, mein kleine midtownlunch boy. Precise coordinates, bitte! I went for a fruitless lunchenmarch only to find the usual krap karts at 54 and 5th Ave.

    That’s crazy… I wonder if some days he just doesn’t show up. The cart is just West of 5th Ave. on 54th St. on the North Side of the Street…

  8. […] 5. Pork Sausage with Everything at the Hallo Berlin Cart (54th btw. 5+6th).  It’s pork and it’s German. […]

  9. […] Favorite Place to Eat Lunch in Midtown: Probably too far west but the combination salad and a split pea soup at Azuri Cafe (51st btw. 9+10th),  if you can put up with the “Pita Nazi”.  My new favorites right now are Margon’s Roast Chicken plate or the Double Soul food dish at the Hallo Berlin Cart. […]

  10. […] Some carts are destinations (Hello Berlin Cart, Daisy May’s BBQ Cart, The Arepa Lady in Queens, or the Carts at the Ballfields in Red Hook), while others remain nameless, taking advantage of a highly populated corner of the city.  I love eating at carts.  It’s not because the food is so great, but it just seems like more fun.  There something about the immediate gratification, the fact that their kitchen is on the side of the road, and of course- weird meat sort of excites me (that didn’t come out right).  (My favorite street meat ever… the lady on the right selling street meat on a stick- in Bali) […]
