… amazingly, the answer to this is yes.
Let’s be honest – a currywust is a stable of Germany. Be it in an Imbiss at a rail station, on the street or so on. And normally – they’re varying between passable and good. However, in my travels… I’ve never encountered a bad curreywurst in my travels.
Ladies, Gentlemen and Frequent Flyers of all persuasions, I give you this example of how not to do a currywurst.
This example was purchased at the Ministop in Terminal 1, Concourse B at Frankfurt Airport (Non-Schenegen)
So what’s wrong with this? More importantly… what’s right? Let’s do an compare and contrast. Here’s a rather delicious currywurst I had at Hamburg Railway station (again, a similar sort of transport hub)
So where to begin with this… embarrassment?
- The Sausage is not sliced. Perhaps most important. Currywurst is a pick up and eat food, and its designed so that can pick at it with a fork. Being advised “there’s a knife over there” isn’t that helpful if you’re grabbing something before you run onto a flight.
- Where the heck is the curry powder? There’s a minimal dusting, but that’s it .
- And the sauce was downright cold. Not even semi warm. To keep the warmth going, you need a warm sauce…
- And then there’s the quantity (or lack of thereafter) of sauce.
So it’s entirely possible it seems to have a disappointing currywust. Which is 1) pretty damn hard and 2) I thought near enough impossible (and I’ve eaten ones from Lidl…).
And it costing €5 for the privilege.
We all know for a lot of travellers, the first thing and last thing of a country you’ll see is the airport and its contents, be it the joy of customs, security and the food experiences.
These experiences need to be positive or you could leave a country with mixed feelings. And whilst security lines can leave nasty memories, crappy food can leave longer ones.
Please try harder Frankfurt Airport. Or else, I’ll come and set up a currywurst stand…
