Life Desk :
Apart from being rich in culture and heritage, there are cities that keep travellers busy round the clock. So, board the flight with a hungry stomach and be delighted with varied foods.
Berlin
Berlin's eating out scene has never been more vivacious and effervescent.From the grasp of Michelins to authenticate it starting with 'Fishers Fritz' a two Michelin star housed at the Regent. For Chef Christian Lohse's French influenced creations to a very busy street food Markthalle Neun on Thursdays. 'Nobelhart & Schmutzig' a much loved novel restaurant offers an innocent menu restricted to native ingredients; which take you on a gastronomic voyage that thrusts the imprint of expectable dining in Berlin. At 'Einsunternull' plates look like Japanese artworks, even humble ingredients such as button mushrooms warped into things of cleverness with crisped hazelnut with crisped hazelnut purée. And, of course there are the traditional places such as 'Zur Letzten Instanz' where the pork knuckle sets perfectly alongside the farmhouse bread, sauerkraut, pureed split peas and smoked bacon. Guten Appetit!
Jerusalem
Lumbered with a reputation as a 'holy land', this picturesque city also houses cute independent restaurants and pubs. The Machane Yehuda market in the heart of the old town excesses with garden-fresh produce and an old world charm especially with the bakeries around...Do not miss the Jewish Challah or stop at Azura for the Falafel. For Israeli food, come back to MachenaYuda Yehuda restaurant named after the market. Just adjacent to the old railway station is the first station offering an array of cuisines, Station 9 for Thai Food is an absolute must stop. Do not miss trying local food while paying a visit to the Church of holy Sepulchre at the labyrinth like souks... especially the breads and Shawarma.
Marrakech
Magical and whimsical, quirky and irreverent, that's Marrakech for you! The making of the famous mint tea is as contentious as it is attractive. Visit Le Terrasse just above the spice market for lunch, a nice rooftop escape from the eventful souk alleys and relish old-style Moroccan food like tagine and some mint tea. The Jemma el Fna is an exhilarating and charming place to see at night. Must try the freshly squeezed orange juice, which is delightful, Snails, sheep head and a host of kebabs. For a meal in style try the Don Alfonso Pasta at L'Italien at the La Mamounia by Don Alfonso.
Strausberg
The city advantages from a wealthy mix of French and German ethos and you would discover small restaurants cluttering the streets especially at Petite France. Indigenous dishes are enjoyed in the winstubs which are distinctive Alsatian style restaurants, mostly family owned.Wine varieties range from the crisp, fruity notes of the Riesling to the expensive, more striking Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. History has it that the Foie gras was invented here; Sauerkraut accompanied by sausages, potatoes and charcuterie is a hot favourite and Tarte flambée (flammekueche) thin flat bread, topped with crème fraiche, sliced onions and lardons are not to be missed. The famous kougelhopf; a yeast-raised cake which has raisins as well as almond flakes is best enjoyed with coffee.
Istanbul
The hearty flavours, taste and warmth of the food, besides being healthy gather into a tickling wanting sensation. Turkish wine complements the local cuisine so perfectly there's nothing like having lamb cutlets with some beautiful local red wine to wash them down.
 At the Ciragan Palace Kempinski, one can not only enjoy a palatial ambience with magnificent views on the Bosphorous that is hard to forget but also try Ottoman specialties. Istanbul is renowned for its Raki and meatballs; you must tuck into at the local restaurants around the hot spots, do try the Seekh kebab marinated with yoghurt and tomato paste and the pomegranate-marinated lamb loin seekh.
