The currywurst is Berlin's gift to the world of fast food.
Served at Schnell Imbiss (fast lunch) stands all over Berlin.
Usually served on a wax paper covered paper plate,
a currywurst is a bratwurst cut into sections, smothered with tomato sauce,
and then sprinkled
with curry powder and paprika.
A currywurst is usually accompanied by a
brötchen (roll) and goes well with bier.
