Many of you will know that Berlin is widely regarded as vegan heaven, so it’s not surprising to hear that there are some exceptional examples of veganised German cuisine. Dr HH and I enjoyed some sensational vegan Bavarian dishes in Munich at Easter 2017, for example. One dish I’d never had the chance to try was the currywurst. Until now!
The first time we took a daytrip to Dresden back in 2015 we had Curry&Co down as our backup plan – in the end we were too stuffed from some gigantic burgers. On our second visit, in 2017, we made it our priority.
There’s a vegan meal deal available, combining the vegan currywurst and chips. There were several sauces to choose for the sausage, but we just went for the plain old curry one: I got mild, Dr HH got spicy. We both enjoyed the gigantic sausages and loved the spicy heat of the sauce (though I found mine a little sweet). The sausages themselves were like hot dogs, and of course a “real” sausage would have been better, but this was good.
And the chips were delicious! (They come in paper cones, which you can balance in little holes in the table.) We were offered ketchup and vegan mayo with them too. They were really crispy on the outside, a very fine chip.
All in all: top notch fast food!
