I’m beginning to wonder if my love of Currywurst is turning into a ‘Currywurst problem’. Friends have started recommending Imbisse (snack restaurants) to me to help me in my hunt for ‘The Best of the Wurst‘. Not that I’m complaining though because it was through a recommendation that I discovered Zur Bratpfanne in Berlin’s Steglitz.
I enjoyed my first meal there so much that I had to go back a few days later with my camera.
Zur Bratpfanne is on the corner of Schloßstraße and Kieler Strasse, a short walk from the S-Bahn at Rathaus Steglitz and between the U-Bahn stations there and at Schloßstraße. This means it’s very convenient for the newly opened Primark at the Schloss-Straßen-Center, which judging by the number of bags I’ve seen on the S and U-Bahn lately is already establishing itself as a go to for Berliners.
Zur Bratpfanne offers Bratwurst mit or ohne Darm (with or without skin) for €1.65 and pommes (chips) in small, medium and large for €1.35, €1.80 and €2.40 respectively.
I was immediately impressed by the quality of the sausage, the crispy/fluffiness of the chips and the flavour and texture of the sauce.
And that sauce is the star of the show.
In summary, for me, zur Bratpfanne is the best Currywurst in Berlin (so far). It’s just a pity that you have to go so far from the centre of the city to get it. But the best things in life are worth putting a little extra effort in to get.
***Update*** – zur Bratpfanne has now been displaced by Curry Baude as the best Currywurst in Berlin.
