A new German sausage bar Wurstkuche has opened at the Downtown Arts District. Joan and I went on separate days for a combine report.
When they first started there was only a few counter seats at the small ordering room. Later on a big back room was added with a bar where you can order imported German and Belgian beers on tap.
There’re three categories: Classics ($6), Gourmet (6.75) and Exotics (7.75). The Exotics offers the likes of Alligator and Rattlesnake. View the menu. They have vegetarian ones too.
Joan got confused and didn’t know the non classics were sausages as well, so they sticked with the classics. Bratwurst (fine cuts of pork with coriander & nutmeg) and Bockwurst (Veal & pork with spices). They’re juicy and great! Good Sauerkraut (toppings) too.
I got the Rattlesnake & Rabbit with Jalapeno Pepperes. The meat feels fatty and buttery. The jalapeno spice gave a nice little kick. It’s not that exotic tasting though (I was told the Alligator one taste really exotic~). Very good! But the sweet peppers topping are a bit too dominating and get in the way. It also took quite some time to cook. My bf got the Kielbasa (from Gourmet) – Polish style, pork & beef with onions and spices. Good texture and flavorful.
Belgian Fries with Curry Ketchup . The fries are great except it’s a little too salted for me. The curry ketchup is delicious! You can also add White Truffle Oil for $1.50. This place seems like a cool place to hang out for beers and quick eat.
