You're sending the kid to Winterfeldplatz first? I would think he'd want to go much further east, like maybe Mitte (Barcomi's and such) or the LSE-Viertel. But it has been a while since I've been there, and I guess going to Berlin and not hitting Habibis would be strange. There's also a good Thai place over...I don't remember the street, but it's on the same street at the Washington Post's Berlin bureau.
That said, the DÃ¶ner-Kepab at the little restaurant in the Onkel-Toms-HÃ¼tte (yes, that is what you think it is, and yes, Dahlem was squarely in the American-occupied sector) U-Bahn station is the best in the world, IMO. Mmm...DÃ¶ner mit einem Schneider und Sohne Kristallweissen, that's a damn tasty little fast-food meal!
