the currywurst replacement

paris has its baguettes, lisbon has the pastéis de belém and berlin… well, berlin has the currywurst, a fried pork sausage, drowned in ketchup and sprinkled with curry powder. for a long time, it puzzled me. how could this be their thing? it didn’t appeal to me at all. i guess i was never a big fan of ketchup to start with… nor processed meat fried in vegetable oil… but we dully took all our visitors to try it out, just for them to get it done. some even liked it!
honestly, i can’t see it – and i don’t think anthony bourdain was very impressed either…

these days, i just skip it and go for the fries instead, dutch/belgium style with lots of mayo. yum! :)

    Interesting was all I could say and from memory (I can’t really remember) I didn’t have the ketchup (or tomato sauce as it is called in Australia) because I don’t like tomato sauce. I know I didn’t take a photo of it when we had our obligatory meal. Interesting.

    ohhhhh it is ok to dislike the berliner currywurst :D but when you go to Düsseldorf, be sure to give it another go at Curry’s, am Hafen :-)))

    eu gostei :D não é a melhor memória da cidade, nem nada que ache que seja imperdível, mas é bom! já tentei fazer cá, com polpa de tomate e caril. Não ficou igual, mas também não ficou mau :)
