Status: Opened yesterday
German sausages are invading Los Angeles. After a few months of careful construction, owner Kai Loebach opened Currywurst on Fairfax and 1st to serve his memory of the popular transient fast food. Loebach hails from Wuppertal, Germany and his knowledge of the savory treat is extensive. Unlike the other spots that serve currywurst in town, Currywurst has only a few items on the menu. The namesake link is a pork and veal sausage served mild, medium or hot with ketchup on the side. Also on offer are a pork (Hungarian) sausage and chicken thuringer. The side sauces can get a little crazy (ranch mayonanaise?); sauteed onions, sauerkraut and garlic-y French fries are necessities. Everything on the menu costs under $6.50; beer and wine are not yet served. Open daily, 11AM to 11PM.
