LOS ANGELES | Berlin Currywurst Silverlake is one of three branches (two in LA, one in NYC) of the folks who specialise in this most Berlin of street food snacks. For the uninitiated, a currywurst consists of a steamed, then fried pork sausage (Bratwurst) cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, and topped with curry powder. It’s simple and delicious, and since we first tried it in Berlin we’ve been addicted.
Along with the traditional currywurst, Berlin Currywurst gives visitors a range of options to choose from. You can choose from eight different types of sausage, original style or in a bun, at a heat level ranging from one to four. It’s all very tasty, but for us the original reigns supreme. The quality of the ingredients here is great too – all-natural US meat, 100% organic sauce, and fries hand-cut from organic potatoes.
There are also a few breakfast options available, along with German beer, wine and soft drinks.
