Wechsler's Currywurst Bratwurst - A quick trip to Germany in the East Village

We love it when we not only discover a new dining spot, but also learn something new. We were in the East Village and noticed Wechsler's Currywurst Bratwurst. It was a small spot with a good selection of German beers. But it was the currywurst that piqued our interest.

Joerg, our cook and server, explained that currywurst was a German national dish (there's even a museum in Berlin!) of sliced pork sausages topped with a tomato and curry sauce. It was started after WWII and ever since then, it has been an addictive fast food dish.

Currywurst ($6, small): The fries were good - thin and crisp. The currywurst was great! The sauce was very tasty, like a ketchup with a subtle curry taste that was not spicy.

Reissdorf Kolsch ($3): The lager was crisp, clean, and refreshing.

We love the taps!

Uerige ($4): This German ale had a medium body and a touch of sweetness.

Wechsler's Currywurst Bratwurst is located at 120 1st Ave (btwn 7th St. and St. Mark's). It's only been opened for 3 months, but there's already a steady flow of regulars who keep coming back for this addictive treat. We will definitely come back for more!
