Wurstküche, meaning sausage kitchen in German, resides deep in downtown Los Angeles. Seeing tons of people waiting in line for their already famous sausages, in a somewhat desolate area of downtown, only adds to its appeal. If you are picturing a cheesy German brewery, like I did, you couldn't be more wrong.
Ambiance: After you wait in line to order your food, you walk through a hall into a giant loft space to claim your seats. Unfortunately this is the tricky part. Although the space is large, there are tons of people there too! However while you wait for a table and your food you can enjoy the full bar inside (with tons of beers on tap!) and a DJ playing music.
The food: With delicious, yet safe choices like Sun Dried Tomato & Mozzarella - smoked chicken & turkey, or SantaFe Jack Cheese & Jalapeño Peppers - smoked turkey. They also have the exotic sausages like Rattlesnake & Rabbit with Jalapeño Peppers or Alligator & Pork, Smoked Andouille Sausage. So try something daring or play it safe. They even have vegetarian options! Get your sausage with an order of fries and make sure you try the whole grain mustard sitting at the table.
