GERMANY’S MOST POPULAR STREET FOOD IS COMING TO NYC

store

A good friend of ours lives on Bleecker St, and when we went over there for New Year’s Eve, we got a big surprise.

On their block, in the old Red Mango space (between Macdougal and Sullivan St) was a sign for Currywurst Bros – The Original From Berlin.

Currywurst is the most popular street food in Germany, and we had it at the Hallo Berlin restaurant on 9th Ave about a year ago.  If you are not familiar with currywurst, it’s a bratwurst, usually cut into slices, and served with a curried ketchup-type sauce.  The Hallo Berlin version had more of a brown curry sauce, but in Germany, they seem to prefer a ketchup-y curry sauce.

We’re not sure if currywurst will fly in New York, but placing it among the many bars of Bleecker St and near NYU certainly gives it a fighting chance.

I guess they missed the Fall 2010 opening date on the sign, but it did look like progress was being made when I went back today to take this picture.  We will keep you informed of any new developments.

Currywurst Bros in New York – I feel another potential Honorary Street Food vendor in the air.

The Currwurst place just opened. We tried it last night and the currywurst was superb. I liked the spicyness of level 4 and 5. If you are tough you take the strongest one…but be sure, you have some bread in case it is to hot for you. :-)
