Herman ze German is calling all “wurstli” lovers to come and visit its authentic small restaurant based in Soho and try its delicious sausages. The limited menu, containing just sausages and fries, is worth trying and customers will really feel an authentic German atmosphere in this beautiful folklore-themed location.
Sausages from Herman ze German are grilled to perfection, gluten free, and come served in a quality bread roll (or without for those with allergies), with various traditional German sauces and crispy onions boosting the offering. For chilli lovers, the menu also offers chilli beef sausages alongside the more familiar pork and veal, smoky pork, beef and pork or bratwurst options. Customers can also add sauerkraut on the top of the sausage which will make it more authentically ‘German’.
The taste of the sausages themselves are incredible, with the cold sauerkraut making a perfect combination. All the usual sauce suspects are available, but ‘Herman’ also offers a traditional German mustard, which is milder than English mustard and gives the sausages a nice and delicate edge. The fries are crispy and prepared using a new technological oven which avoids using extra fat to cook. There is a distinct lack of excess oil in each chip’s taste and they come coated in Herman´s secret ‘magic’ seasoning. The result is a fry that is healthier, contains less fat and more taste, and really is more delicious and crispier than you can imagine.
The main delicacy at Herman ze German is currywurst which is a choice of any of their sausages served in a box and topped with a homemade curry tomato sauce in either mild, hot or ‘burner’ varieties. Diners can also choose if they want to have this top-seller ‘naked’ or with a side in the form of a bun or fries. Potato salad is also available and is made using a traditional recipe from German culture.
Foxes and does are painted on the wall downstairs, creating a relaxing forest atmosphere and while the sound is muted, the projectors screening classic German movies gives a great impression and feeling of Germany. The ‘Bierhaus’-style benches create the ambience of German food festival, while the lighting is old fashioned of the kind usually seen in beer cellars. The whole atmosphere is very intimate and with the sausagey aroma all around it c creates a wonderful garden-party feel.
Herman Ze German revels in its cultural heritage and is equally proud of its sausages. If you want to try really juicy and tasty sausages come and visit this small restaurant with a big atmosphere in the middle of Soho!
