If you don´t mind standing while you eat here are some places to get a meal or a snack for under DM7.

Aspendos
Hauptstraße 11, Berlin - Schöneberg | Tel: 784 85 70, Fax: no fax | U7 Kleistpark | Times: Sun - Thu 12:00 - 22:00, Fri - Sat 12:00 - 23:00
map:
My pick for the best döner in town. I suggest a Dürüm Döner, strips of lamb with the typical turkish toppings, great Scharfe Sosse (Hot Sauce) wrapped in a flat chewy homemade bread for 5,-. The vegetarian variant is called Sikma, Dürüm bread wrapped around a filling mass of potatoes, onions and spinach, flavored with paprika and lemon. The big attraction here is the quality of the bread. Whatever you order is pulled fresh from the oven by a man who has dough in his blood. For a change try the lentil soup (Linsensuppe) which comes with two hot breads for 5,-.

Dada Falafel
Linienstr. 132, 10115 Berlin - Mitte | Tel: 27 59 69 27, Fax: no fax | U6 Oranienburger Tor; S-Bahn Oranienburger Str. | Sandwiches from DM4; Plates from DM6
map:
Groovy little falafel/schwarma joint just off the Oranienburger Str. main drag where perfectly crunchy falafel balls prepared on the spot are served with a lush green salad and variety of colourfully flavoured sauces. This place is so good its hard to image why they need to make their pita bread all stale and chewy by heating them in the microwave - perhaps it comes from an Islamic conviction that only Allah is perfect.

Gümüs
Hauptstraße
56, 13158 Berlin - Schöneberg | S+U Insbrucker Platz, S-Bahn Schöneberg | Times: 11am til evening
map:
This is a Lahmacun or "Turkish Pizza" factory with a small bar where you can enjoy them steaming out of the oven with a sprinkle of lemon and paprika (3 kinds) for 1,50DM or "komplett," ie rolled up 'round lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, onions and parsley for a whopping 2,-.

Keb Up
Rosenthaler Platz , 10119 Berlin - Mitte | U8 Rosenthaler Platz | In a trailer corner Weinbergsweg/Brunnenstraße | Times: lunch 'til late
Keb Up is a superior Döner joint in three ways:- They cut the veggies up real small so that they scatter a delicate patina on your shoes; their "Scharfe Soße" (Hot sauce) rocks, and they offer a susbtantial mini-döner for 2,50DM. Try their greasy chicken döner, felafel or the carbo-bomb combo curry wurst and fries topped with a healthy ounce of mayo.


Thai-Ha
Brunnenstraße 4, Berlin - Mitte | Tel: 44 04 29 50, Fax: no fax | U8 Rosenthaler Platz |
map:
Thai-Chinese imbiß (snack bar) with three cramped tables and bar space also known as "Schmeckt & Billig" (Tasty and Cheap). The food is fast, cheap and tasty and the beer is cheap. But as seems typical with Thais in Berin's gastronomy industry, they are not particulary happy or friendly.
