Germany: Herman ze German

The Bratwurst is to Germany, what the kebab is to Turkey - or so says my German friend. He also says that Germans have only just realised that the humble Bratwurst could be popular outside Germany which is why we have recently seen a rise in the number of Bratwurst vendors in London's street food sceene.

A Bratwurst is a type of German sasague, and the key to its popularity lies in the quality of the meat. In the UK a sausage only has to have a minimum of 30% meat.  In Germany a sausage is legaly required to have a minimum of 80% meat.  This results not only in Greman sausages being better quality and better tasting, but also better for you, as unlike their British counterparts they are not pumped full of fat and bulking agents.

Wurst (German for sauagse) come in 3 types, Bratwurst, Currywurst and Brockwurst. Bratwurst is the most common type of wurst and is usualy made of pork or beef, panfried or grilled and served in a bun like a hot dog.  Where ever you go in Germany you will find bratwurst being sold from market stalls and kiosks making it Germany's favorite street food. 

You can find all three types of wurst at Herman ze German topped with sauerkraut and served with baked fries and German soft drinks.  All of the wurst served here are imported from the Black Forrest, so you can be sure you are experiencing the authenic taste of Germany.  In fact the wurst sold here are so good that the German ex-pats of London flock here at weekends for an authentic taste of home.
