    Default Wurstküche

    Hopefully I am not dupe posting on this but I am feeling too damn lazy today to search. Especially after expending so much energy supporting my beloved Kings during their King-Hell stomping of the Red Wings!

    Anyway, I recently moved to Barker Block in downtown LA (90013) and a friend hipped me to this great sausage factory within walking distance of my new pad. Enter Wurstküche!

    I have no idea how I am supposed to keep my cholesterol in check with a place like this next to me. For starters, the place had a line coming out of it a block long... at 4:30pm on a Saturday! The menu consists of an enormous variety of fresh sausages, cooked up on a big grill, with your choice of caramelized onions, sweet/spicey grilled peppers or sauerkraut and a variety of mustards. The sausages ranged from traditional (bratwurst) to some damned exotic tubes of meat (rattlesnake and rabbit). All served up on a fresh baked bun.

    To make matters better (or worse depending on how you look at it), their German and Belgian beer selection is possibly the best I have seen in these parts. And most of it on tap! This selection easily beats out many of the German restaurants I have eaten in LA, including the venerable Red Lion. I partook in several pints of Koestritzer Schwarzbier to help wash down the pile of pig, mustard and pickled cabbage.

    An finally, they have a Belgian french fry stack that will knock your socks off! Big cut, crispy brown fries which I chose to compliment with a curry ketchup. Y.U.M!

    Only downside I could find to this place is it is simply not big enough. It was jam packed and we had to wait a bit for a seat at a community table. But on the social upside we saw quite a few Kings fans after the big win today.

    All in all this place gets a HUGE thumbs up from me and I recommend it if you dig sausages, fries and beer.

    Also, you should eat there to help support the economy in my newly situated area of residence :D

    The Buffalo is my 2nd fav. Oh, and don't forget to add truffle oil glaze to your pomme fritz.

    I'm not sure why I said "thank you" to this thread, as I will likely die from this.

    Unhealthy or not- thank you for the head's up on this place. I will have to give it a go sometime in the near future.

    I've only been to Wurstkuche once but it immediately became one of my favorite joints in LA. Incredible food and an incredible beer lineup.

    Couldn't imagine living within walking distance. The damage to the wallet and the waistline would be disastrous.

    Update: I am steadily working my way through their sausage menu. Thus far my fave is the Alligator/Pork Andouille. It is one hearty little bastard! Heat is very similar to the Lousiana Hot Link but not quite (go with the Austin Blues if you want hot). It's a very lean sausage too. Recommend it with a wheat or dark beer.

    Of the traditional sausages my favorite is the Bockwurst. Stay with a light beer for this one. Plenty of spicey flavor and goes well with sauerkraut.

    Side note- got a day off. Guess where I'm goin! :D
