I’ve been to Bestie before, but the last time I went, I was too hungry to even bother taking pictures for the blog. This time, we did a midnight run and took the food to go to G’s place. Bestie is located in Chinatown and is definitely the definition of a hipster spot. They are a sausage and beer spot and makes the perfect midnight snack.
The menu is inspired from German street food, and they are famous for their currywurst, which originates in Berlin. I’ve tried the real currywurst in Berlin, but I would say Bestie does it just as good or even better! Currywurst is really just sausage on fries with a curry powder mixed ketchup sauce.
Currywurst – Classic Pork Thüringer
At Bestie, there are really two main sausage menu items: the currywurst or sausage with sauerkraut. I’m not a huge fan of sauerkraut, so S and I chose the currywurst. You can then choose from the type of meat you want in the sausage. We went for the Classic Pork Thüringer, which was very delicious. You can tell the sausages are made with fresh meat. The curry ketchup is slightly spicy, but not overwhelming. I also liked the tangy flavour of the ketchup, which was more like tomato paste. The fries themselves, aren’t anything special. I wuoldn’t say they are crispy, but the sauce makes the fries flavourful and tasty.
Currywurst – Turkey Chorizo
G go the currywurst with the Turky Chorizo as the meat in the sausage. The chorizo gave the sausage a slight more heat than the classic pork sausage. Very good as well. If you like ketchup and spice, you will like Bestie’s currywursts.
I do find that the prices are on the high side at around $8.50 per order. It’s almost like paying for a full meal! It does fill you up, but knowing that it’s just fries and sausages makes you wonder how much they make from this.
