Where the Berlin Original tastes best

The Berlin curry sausage dish, or Currywurst, is German fast food with flair. Take one typically German smoked sausage, boil it, fry it, then serve it sliced with spiced and curry flavoured tomato sauce and a side of chips. Berlin invents the dish just after World War II, and it rapidly becomes a Berlin institution, and a city favourite. Sold in fast food restaurants, kiosks or in diners across the city, the Currywurst is such a typical Berliner snack that there is even a museum dedicated to it. The Currywurst Museum can be found close to Checkpoint Charlie, in the heart of the city.
