Currywurst. The equivalent of New York’s hot dog is arguably a bit more of a bomb when it comes to richness of taste. Currywurst has been a Berlin staple since 1949 when Herta Heuwer, a local housewife who lived in the British military sector bartered some of the spirits in her household with some ketchup, curry powder, and Worcestershire sauce that the soldiers had brought with them from the UK. The trade paved the way for the creation of a masterpiece sauce that would accompany Germany’s favorite street food, eaten by both rich and poor, locals and tourists in Berlin.
