Wuerstelstand – Our Last Sausage Kiosk Before the Equator
The closure of Erich’s Wuerstelstand in Chinatown, back in May, may have come as a shock to its regulars. However, if you are a regular, you can heave a huge sigh of relief as the Austrian eatery has reopened at another coffee shop in Dover Crescent! For those who have not heard of Wuerstelstand, it is actually a sausage kiosk that serves authentic Austrian dishes.
According to the Austrian chef, Erich, Wuerstelstand was initially built to accommodate the changing demographics that arose from economic and social changes around the world. One of the changes is a higher propensity for people to move into the heartlands. Hence, Erich decided to set up his eatery in a hawker setting.
“We only serve customers who can eat pork, because all our sausages and meat cuts are purely pork. We do not serve chicken or beef,” Erich shared. Since that wasn’t an issue with us, we ordered a Kaesekrainer ($4/pc) – a smoked pork sausage with cheese that is well loved by Austrians. Each pork sausage is actually mixed with a secret cheese recipe, so pork and cheese lovers must try this! The sausage is sliced into pieces, and served with tomato sauce and mustard. The sausage has a slight char on the outside, while the inside had bits of melted cheese. I find that the pork sausages go really well with the tomato sauce which is imported from Germany.
I paired the Kaesekrainer with a Crispy Dinner Roll ($1), which has a slightly tough texture.
If you prefer a traditional grilled pork sausage, Bratwurst ($3/pc) is available. Similar to the Kaesekrainer, the bratwurst is sliced and placed on a plate with condiments on the side. The seasoning in the bratwurst is good, with discernible bits of herbs and spices. I paired the Kaesekrainer with an Onion Bun ($1). Erich shares that his Austrian breads are made in a Singapore bakery. Indeed, the texture of the bun is fluffy. You can also find bits of dried onions inside. I would definitely recommend the onion bun over the crispy dinner roll.
As we were about to leave, one of Wuerstelstand’s regulars whom we spoke to raved about the Meatloaf Sandwich ($5) – a staple in Austrian German cuisine. We tam chiak right, so we definitely had to get it. The sandwich is a simple assembly of three thick slices of meat loaf, German mustard and two slices of dinner crispy roll. If you haven’t tasted meat loaf, it tastes like our usual luncheon meat but is less salty, less oily and better seasoned.
Chef Erich mentioned that his pork sausages are not made in house. The pork sausages that you get at Wuerstelstand are imported from a German company which delivers quality pork sausages. If you’re craving for good German pork sausages, Erich’s Wuerstelstand is worth a visit.
