Germans are famous for two things: their frankfurters and their frankfurters. But Erich who makes German sausages is technically Austrian. Erich of Erich’s Wuerstelstand is famous worldwide. Austrian tourists come to Chinatown to visit him.
Decor: Just a kiosk at a back lane of Chinatown. A barrel for a table and few seats.
Service: Ok lor.
Food: The bread and sausages are made from scratch by him! AWESOME.
I had the thick cheese sausage ($3.50) in a bun ($1.50). I prefer thickness to length; it fills up the mouth better! IT IS AMAZING! The bread is so crusty outside but warm and soft inside. The cheese sausage has a dense orange cheese (cheddar?) that isn’t salty, so it won’t feel excessive, good till the last bite. Great value too. For hotdog stand to survive in Chinatown with all the delicious Chinese food, you know it’s going to be good.
Strangely, in this series of SausageFest, the shops are all opened by men. Truly a SausageFest. Purple Mustard has spectacular multi-dimensional sauces whereas Erich’s Wuerstelstand appeals to the simple, wholesome, homemade side of us. We like both of them equally and cannot decide which is better. We wish both of them can combine: bun and sausage from Erich’s and sauces by Purple Mustard.
