Urban: Sausage Fest at WVRST

There is nothing better than a good sausage fest. Add a beer, and you're a god sent.

All joking (?) aside, I couldn't wait to try WVRST, so I brought my best girlfriend- Mom- along for the ride! This King West hot spot-meets-German beerhall is a great lunch spot just far enough from Union Station to make you feel a little less like a tourist. With eighteen different sausages, dirty duck fries and communal tables perfect for tuning into your neighbours' conversation, this vowel-less hangout isn't just a watering hole.

The menu is simple and the concept cool. Walk up to the sausage case to pick your porky (or chicken, game, or veggie) poison, pair it with one of the Ontario beers they are serving up, take a number and seat yourself.

We were feeling a little vanilla, and both opted for pork varieties, but next on my hit list is the bison, made with maple and blueberry. I got mine on a bun, with a choice of two toppings: sauerkraut, jalapenos, peppers and sauteed onions. With a healthy dousing of yellow ballpark mustard, we was set to dig in. Now onto the sidekick...

Dirty duck fries. After a small WTF, you can't help but drool a little over these babies. Duck fat frites smoothered in sauteed onions, peppers, jalapenos and their signature WVRST sauce, which is a tomato curry delight. This is the same stuff you can get with cut up sausage in their currywurst. 

*The* dirty duck fries. 

Get on your lederhosen, and get down to WVRST.
