Hot Dogs: Berlin's Best Wurst?

The fact that German food has a whole lot of sausage variations is something that is pretty much common knowledge. On menus, at deli counters, at imbiss (snack) stands, there were always a variety to choose from and one in each person's hand. Currywurst and bratwurst were the ones we saw most often around Bavaria, Thuringia and Saxony. However, as soon as we arrived in Berlin we noticed that they had another, distinct favorite. Hot Dogs.
They didn't even call them frankfurters! There were hot dogs here, hot dogs there, hot dogs, hot dogs everywhere.
There was Hot Dog World, Hot Dog & Burger World, New Hot Dog World... and Hot Dog Soup?
They probably just should have stuck with the "World" trend, because this name didn't seem all that appetizing.
A lot of them were very American-ccentric. Mr. Miller's had a guy decked out in 1950s drive-through-waiter garb. He seemed embarrassed enough and I didn't want to worsen things by taking a photo of him.
The best part? They ALL offered veggie dogs! After traveling for two weeks around Germany, I felt pretty left out of the whole hand-held meat world. I had also eaten a great deal of sauerkraut on just about everything except a hot dog. So, on my final day in Deutschland, I went right into Hot Dog World and got one with all the fixings: sauerkraut, mustard, ketchup and these crumbled up fried onions. Best wurst ever.

    Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com
