Are you a Bratwurst fan who just can’t seem to get to the Queen Vic Market at lunch time? Is there a hole in your stomach where a half-digested sausage should have been? Well have I got news for you: there is a delicious alternative to the popular market lunch-time treat a little bit closer to town.
Perched on Lonsdale Street, the Bratwurst Shop is, funnily enough, a purveyor of fine Bratwursts. The prices are even comparable to the market prices; $6.40 for a Bratwurst with Sauerkraut, mustard and tomato, and 60c for any extras, the price is right! You can even choose your favourite flavour sausage and mustard from an impressive list. I went with the Spicy Pork, dijonaise, tomato sauce, sauerkraut, onion, and cheese. Yes, that’s how I roll. I should have casually walked in and announced ‘All of it, please.’ I found it to be delicious – just as good as the market!
If Bratwurst isn’t your thing or you aren’t sure how you even got there, you will be spoiled for choice at the range of soups, focaccias and other lunch-time treats also available.
The shop is located close to the Magistrates Court, so don’t be surprised (like I was) if you see some judges wolfing down their lunch in-between hearings in all their white-wigged glory. If I wasn’t such a chicken I could have introduced myself and given them a little origami gavel to brighten up their day.
