Berlin Currywurst Starts Serving German Street Food Tuesday

New, 22 comments

As of two days ago the former pupusa shop next to Pazzo Gelato at Sunset Junction has shuttered. In its wake, paper-covered windows and a promising sign announcing the introduction of Berlin Currywurst, the east side's answer to Wurstkuche minus the craft beer selection.

Currywurst, a popular fast food in Berlin, consists of a hot pork sausage sliced and served with curry sauce and curry powder. Sometimes the dish is accompanied by fries, sometimes bread. At Berlin Currywurst guests can expect a pretty concise menu of "natural" sausages, choose from chicken to pork to beef to tofu served with German farmers bread and an organic sauce of choice (pick a level of heat plus flavor profile like garlic or chipotle). The lone side? Organic fritten or fries topped with chopped onions and/or jambalaya. While Wurstkuche's sausages are priced between $5.75 and $7.50, depending on how exotic you go, Currywurst will charge a competitive $5.89 plus $.89 for a specialty sauce. Not too bad. Starting Tuesday hit Currywurst for lunch or dinner, Pazzo for dessert. [EaterWire]
