Choose from a vast selection of exotic sausages served with crispy rolls and homemade dipping sauces, then wash it all down with a your choice of gourmet sodas or 24 imported beers on tap. You might not think that "gourmet" goes along with "sausage" until you've tried Wurstkuche's rotating menu, which includes sausage selections such as mango jalapeno, sun dried tomato and mozzarella, Filipino Maharlika as well as several vegetarian options. Many come for the menu of exotic sausages, such as buffalo, beef and pork with chipotle peppers, duck and bacon with jalapeno, alligator and pork or rattlesnake and rabbit. Each sausage sandwich comes with gourmet mustards and two additional toppings such as caramelized onions and sauerkraut. Don't miss the fresh-cooked Belgian frites, and wash it all down with traditional German ale. Wurstkuche has a wide selection of imported beers including Bitburger, Spaten Pils and Blanche De Bruxelles.

Review By


Wurstkuche in downtown Los Angeles takes its name from Wurstkuche in Regensburg, Germany, the oldest restaurant in the country and perhaps the oldest sausage tavern in the world that has been serving food for over 500 years and maybe longer.
