Wechsler's Currywurst and Bratwurst

120 First Ave. New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-228-1170

Location Description:

This bare-bones but jolly pub is dedicated to high quality German sausages and beer. Currywurst, a Berlin street-food favorite, here consists of a juicy pork-veal sausage, blanketed with reddish curry sauce, which tastes like equal parts ketchup, barbecue sauce, and Japanese curry. Skinny fries come on the side, and are delicious dipped first in mayo, then in curry. We also liked the pale, mild bratwurst. Non-German sausages are not an afterthought: the lamb merguez is darkly spiced with cinnamon and chile, and the rough-hewn, fat wild boar link is a meaty marvel.
