With the exception of the “Döner”, the “Currywurst” is THE popular food in Berlin; a sausage with a slightly spicy tomato sauce! The Wurstpate is a half open booth where you can order “Currywurst” with its own special homemade tomato sauce. Side dishes to accompany the sausage are available, as well as french fries (of course)!
Interesting fact: Herta Heuwer from Berlin is well regarded to be the inventor of the Currywurst in 1949. Allegedly one day she got so bored in her snack bar on Stuttgarter Platz that she started to create a sauce with tomato paste and spices. She cut a boiled sausage into pieces and garnished it with her tomato sauce, which she patented ten years later under the name “Chillup”.
