Hallo Berlin

54th Street & 5th Avenue, New York, NY -
By the loosest use of the term, Hallo Berlin is a hot dog cart. There are wieners, wursts, kielbasas, and meatballs, and it is possible to get them in a bun. The "Freakin Deal" consists of meatballs with a knockwurst, German potato salad, red and wine cabbage, and a crusty roll. The pair of meatballs are topped with hot horseradish and hot mustard. What a wonderful meal!
