Exploring the streets of New York City is one of my favorite things to do. Looking for new discoveries or going to recommended ones, I never stop. This is not a traditional food blog. I don't focus on restaurant reviews, or cooking tips; but I find specific items that you absolutely must try. Whether it be a cranberry donut or the best cappuccino. The focus isn't on the usual, but the cheap, the best, and the hidden.
I am always looking for new places to go! Send me a tweet, or leave me a tip of your favorite place or find in the comments!

Wiener. Sausage. Wiener. Sausage.
Cool, now that we got that out of our system, let’s talk about food. Specifically German sausages.
Located in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles, you’re going to need to don your most hipster cool swag like it ain’t nothin to ya. Dad jeans, a beat up flannel.. maybe some flyknits? PERFECT.
Saunter in to this German fort of an establishment (it’s huge and hidden by this fairy tale vine situation) and immediately you see a case of sausages. Grab a
menu and decide just how dope of a boss you’re in the mood to be. They call themselves the purveyor of exotic grilled sausages - and they ain’t lying. Sausages are divided up into “classics,” “gourmet,” and “exotics.”
Classics consist of your usual bratwurst and hot Italian variety. Cool, but let’s keep going. Mango jalapeño? Filipino maharlika? You’ll find those under gourmet. Then there are exotics like duck & bacon with jalapeño peppers and rabbit, veal, & pork seasoned with white wine. Thank you for blessing us sausage GAWDS.
As a consumer of exotic grilled sausages, I can tell you there is no wrong way to order. That is unless you fail to order these 100% legit Belgian fries with home made dipping sauces. Don’t even begin to feed me that weight watcher BS or the summer is coming excuse. We all know what season it is. As my boy Kanye SAYS, bow in the presence of greatness.
Don’t sleep on the beer selection, either - 24 imported biers on tap? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
Now go my little Wiener schnitzels, Wurstküche awaits.
