Pin It Now!
Wurstküche reminds me of a Rosamunde (SF) (check out my post HERE) meets Pommes Frites (NY) all housed in a indoor beer garden.  They have numerous beers on tap as well as some really quirky sodas like cucumber and spiced apple cider.
 Wurstküche has an wide spectrum of sausages from the classics (Bratwurst, Bockwurst, Hot Italian, Vegetarian Italian, Vegetarian Smoked Apple Sage, and Vegetarian Mexican Chipotle) to a little fancier (mango jalapeno, Santa Fe Jack Cheese & Jalapeno Pepper, Chicken Apple & Spices, Austin Blues, Sun Dried Tomato & Mozzarella, Green Chilies & Cilantro, Filipino Maharlika, Kielbasa, and Louisiana Hot Link) to the exotics (Buffalo, Beef, & Pork with Chipotle Peppers, Duck & Bacon with Jalapeno Peppers, Alligator & Pork with Andouille Sausage, Rattlesnake & Rabbit with Jalapeno Peppers, and Rabbit, Veal, & Pork Seasoned with White Wine). 

 Each sausage is grilled to order along with a freshly grilled bun.

The inside seating area is located down the hallway in the back of the restaurant.  It seems to get crowded in waves so I suggest sending someone to grab some seats while another person waits in the order line.

After a heavy lunch and a much anticipated upcoming dinner, I could only scarf down one dog and some fries so I picked the most exotic out of the bunch - rattlesnake & rabbit with jalapeno peppers.  I have had rattlesnack and rabbit separately on various occasions, but never together and never in a sausage.  Not necessarily a chicken type flavor, but more of a mild flavor with a medium spicy kick and a good snap on the sausage.  It was probably juicer than any other sausage I've had so far (sorry Roseamunde and Top Dog!).  Two toppings are included with each order:  carmelized onions, sauerkraut, sweet peppers, or spicy peppers.  I chose sweet and spicy peppers since that's my go to when I'm ordering at Rosamunde.  The peppers didn't have much spicy to them and the pieces were a little big for my preference. 

Having been to Pommes Frites in New York, I was excited to try eat some Belgium fries and try new dipping sauces.  At around 10 types of sauces, its no where near the selection that Pommes Frites has, but for an extra $2 they drizzle on a truffle oil glaze.  With the small order of fries you get one dipping sauce and with the large size they include two free dipping sauces.  For being double fried, the fries here are a lot more fluffy and potatoey than crispy.  Not bad if you prefer your fries on the softer side, but it is missing those super crunchy end pieces.   

Even though I only got a small size (which I think is quite large and sharable), I still opted to pay an extra $.75 for an additional sauce.  From left to right:  Tzatziki sauce, chipotle aioli.  The tzatziki sauce was a little bland, but the chipotle sauce was creamy with a spicy kick.
