Germany in London: German Deli in Borough Market

Continuing our World in London series, we asked ex-VLer Eileen Geibig (who has sadly for us returned to Germany) where she used to go for a taste of home.

Eileen pointed us in the direction of the German Deli in Borough Market:

“They sell Bratwurst with Sauerkraut at the market – to die for! I recommend a type of sausage called Nuernberger Rostbratwuerstchen that you can buy there. They are tiny sausages with lots of herbs and funnily taste even better with English Colman’s mustard.”

Do you agree that German Deli serves the best Bratwurst in London? We’d love to hear your ideas about Germany in London.

    Kurz & Lang near Smithfields have nice wurst too. Also Austrian café Kipferl nearby.

    Oh yes, the German Deli is amazing. They also sell typical German bread and loads of items that I miss from home and can’t find in London supermarket. I recently discovered a website of a German bakery in East London – Berlin Delicious – which I haven’t tried yet, but the breads and cakes and “Torten & Teilchen” look very delicious.

    Walked past this on Villiers Street on Wednesday, apparantly it’s opening on Monday: Herman ze German. According to Daily Candy:

    On the menu: leberkase, a flat meatloaf-looking breakfast sausage, as well as German breads, buns and pastries. For lunch, dinner and after-hours (till 1 am) sink your teeth into beef chilli and pork sausages in fresh crusty buns with fat-free (really) French fries. Move over fry-up, currywurst — chopped sausage in a curry and tomato gravy — is our new hangover food.

    The meat comes from small farms in the Black Forest, and unlike their fried English cousins, the 27-centimetre wieners are boiled and then grilled. There’s even a basin by the door to wash your hands before you start. Healthy, organized fast food: did you really expect anything less?

    Sounds fantastisch, nein?

    Where do the Germans watch the Germany vs. Turkey football match on Friday at 19:45 in London if they do not want to watch it at home??
