Wechsler’s Currywurst – German – East Village
August 27th, 2010 by plumpdumpling

I would go to Wechsler’s every day. It’s one of those quintessential East Village finds that’s tiny, cozy, and cheap, yet unlike most of the East Village, it’s somewhere you can actually take a date.

Not, like, a snobby date.

A date like me.

Basically, I just want to go back to Wechsler’s, and I want you to go with me.

Anyway, here’s a picture of some meat covered in some sauce:

That’s what currywurst is: sausage, sliced and covered in a saucy blend of tomato and curry powder. It’s traditionally a German street food, but when I recommended Wechsler’s to my friend Steve, he reported back the next day that it’s waaaaaaaaaay more bland in Germany. Wechsler’s is spicy and sweet, like the base of a really good chili.

It is a meal at $6, and they serve it with crunchy fries and this tiny little fork that will make you feel like a curry-lovin’ giant.

    I should mention that I went here with my friend Nastassia, who is a wonderful friend but a terrible blogger.

    In that she never blogs.

    Not that she’s not a good writer.

    Because she is.

    OH MY GOD, THAT LOOKS SO YUM. Yet another dish for me to try now that I suddenly, miraculously like curry.

      It really is nothing short of miraculous. I have no idea if you can find this stuff in other, less freaky parts of the country, but you can certainly try it when you come to NYC on your honeymoon and stay on my inflatable mattress.

    Currywurst is always the first and the last thing I eat when I visit Germany!!! My favorite thing about Currywurst is that in Germany you can now buy currywurst trays made from porcelain (that look exactly like the paper tray). I recently added about 15 currywursts to the annual consumption of 800 million in Germany which inspired (and qualified) me to write about Germany’s wurst case scenario … :)

    I had currywurst at Curry 36 which is supposed to be one of the best. I wasn’t that impressed actually. It was just ketchup with some curry powder on top. Your “currywurst” sounds way more delicious.
