Having just been in Berlin, I actually don’t get the craze for currywurst. It’s basically a deep fried hot dog. Cut into pieces. Doused in ketchup and sprinkled with curry powder. But hey, each to their own stomach, eh?
I might be biased here but Chicago-style hotdogs are so much better. Here’s my concoction of a Chicago-style:
- uncured beef hotdogs
- sweet relish
- organic tomato slices(from the garden)
- hot pickled green beans,
- raw chopped onions
- grainy dusseldorf mustard(German mustard is awesome)
- a dash of celery salt
- soft poppy seed bun.
