Lauren's Webpage...home of the "Engineer/Troublemaker"


Thursday, June 04, 2009
As I'm watching Game 1 of the NBA Championship (and before I bore everyone with more basketball talk) I have a restaurant review to offer.

I read about Wurstküche in Los Angeles Magazine and I immediately wanted to eat there. I mean, with the promise of exotic sausages and specialty dipping sauces for fries, who wouldn't? So Dan and I headed to downtown LA (not exactly in our neck of the woods) over the Memorial Day weekend, guided by our sometimes trusty GPS unit, in search of this food wonderland. When we arrived at the address in the magazine we were apprehensive, though. The street was pretty deserted, the storefront looked abandoned, and there was no advertisement for any kind of commercial establishment. Kind of gang-like, actually. But as soon as we worked up the courage to open the door we found a dimly lit restaurant filled with respectable-looking patrons who had some delicious-looking food in front of them. So different from the exterior! I ordered a rabbit, veal, and pork sausage that was absolutely delicious. Dan was more adventurous with a rattlesnake and rabbit sausage (and a bratwurst for good measure) and he said it was tasty as well. We had curry ketchup and chipotle aioli dipping sauces with our fries and washed everything down with exotic beers (for Dan) and sodas (for me). All in all it was a great experience and we'll definitely be going back to try more of the sausages on the menu.
