The German Curry Sausage Dissimilarity
This was my meal yesterday. I sometimes prefer fast food if I want to play computer games with my friends. Yes, because it is somewhat convenient to call the delivery service but also because they offer some tasty things. One very famous german fast food dish is the one on the image above. It´s a Currywurst (curry sausage) with french fries and curry sauce and salad. I additionally ordered mayonnaise for the fries. That is a very common fast food dish here in North Germany.
Here where I am, the sausage is very long (sometimes maybe also cut through like on my image) while you get a much smaller one if you ask for a Currywurst in Berlin. I remember when my friends and me traveled to Berlin a decade ago to make party on the Loveparade. We saw a snack bar and ordered a curry sausage but what we got was a really tiny sausage and a friend said to the salesman “I ordered a Currywurst and I got a tiny one, are you kidding me?”. The salesman answered “Welcome to Berlin mate, where are you from?”. We said that we are from Schleswig-Holstein in the more northern part of germany and he said “Well, when in Rome, do as the Romans do!” and we all laughed a lot and ate our tiny and different Currywurst but got an extra Beer for free out of pity I think.
So, as said… the Currywurst on the image above is a typical Currywurst you get in Schleswig-Holstein but there are places in Germany where you would get a much smaller one. This dish is so tasty and just another way how germans eat sausage (laughing).
