Berlin Currywurst

Currywurst is a popular street food that originated in post-WWII West Berlin. Many of the US troops who served in occupied West Berlin get a far away look in there eyes at the mere mention of it, overcome with memories of late-night visits to a local Imbiss (German street food vendor).

It’s a bratwurst, cut into bite-sizes pieces served in a little paper bowl, slathered in a ketchup/curry sauce. It came with a toothpick as your utensil, usually accompanied by “Pommes frites mit Mayonnaise”…. yep, french fries with mayo (yum!).
