Currywurst – Berlin

Currywurst is a fast-food specialty found all over Germany. According to some (ie Wikipedia), currywurst was invented by Herta Heuwer in Berlin in 1949, and has been popular with locals and tourists alike ever since. The sausage is covered in curry flavoured ketchup (yum…) and is often served with french fries. Currywurst is often served in stalls on the street (on little pieces of card like in the photo below). Currywurst is obviously rather popular – 800 million servings are sold in Germany each year… So, even though currywurst is a stereotypical food associated with Germany, there’s some truth behind is as it’s such a popular street snack.
