Iconic, experimental, cheap, tasty and a bit odd. Berlin’s favourite street food – the currywurst – could only have been invented in experimental Berlin. The legendary tale goes something like this; on a chilly September day in 1949, snack bar owner Herta Heuwer traded a bottle of alcohol (or Worcestershire sauce, depending on which anecdote your read) for curry powder with a couple of British soldiers. She mixed the curry with her ketchup recipe and poured it over a sliced grilled sausage. The world famous currywurst recipe was born. Today, more than 800 million currywursts are consumed each year in Germany, of which 70 million in Berlin.
