Tasty Sausages

Interesting to find a rather authentic German sausage stall right smack in the outskirts of Chinatown.    I had their sausage with cheese and I love it! Though I must say that the price is quite steep for the sausages. I also had the soup which I would say 'nevermind the soup' the next time.

Over-hyped, Bad Service

Every time I walk past this stand, I tell myself how cute and quaint it is, and I'm gonna try the food one day. I love the decor of the kiosk (though very dusty) and loved how the chef always dons his chef outfit.

But when I finally did try the food out, it was really just average. Definitely not as good as the Bratwurst I've had in Germany. Just thinking about the German sausages I used to eat in Germany makes me salivate. It was a tad too oily and maybe the warm weather here just makes hot sausages less appealing.

I'm not sure if the chef was having a bad day, but he vented it on his customers. Perhaps it was a very warm day, especially so in the kiosk. I got scolded for placing my wallet beside my food, on the table where i ate. He said I was being arrogant for thinking that it wouldn't get stolen in a very nasty tone. I admit that i'm a little careless, but it was really uncalled for. He could have phrased it nicely. Either way it was unprofessional to vent his displeasure on customers.

all in all, I think it's over-hyped because it's one of the few sausage stands around with such a quaint exterior. Food was average, service seems to depends on his mood.

Good Sausages Served By A Celebrity Chef

Full Erich's Wuerstelstand review here

Erich's Wuerstelstand is a Singapore tourist attraction of sorts, playing on the 'unusual' aspect of an Austrian Chef selling German / Austrian food in Chinatown. Erich's Wuerstelstand fame is such that tourists visit especially to see the stall, especially tourists from his home country of Austria, where his stall is featured as a 'Must See' attraction in Singapore.

Of course, Erich's Wuerstelstand wouldn't have survived all these years if the food wasn't good as well. Specializing in traditional German breads and sausages, Erich's Wuerstelstand imports many of the ingredients from Germany, and hand-makes the food, so it's pretty good. He also prepares the sauerkraut himself! Prices are slighly cheaper than what you'll pay for a sausage or hot dog at other places.

Service at Erich's Wuerstelstand is very good, as the stall is operated by the boss himself, Erich Pollski, a friendly, boisterous man who will engage you in conversation, and gamely pose for photos if asked. He's met many famous personalities and celebrities, and has a collection of autographs.

As a take-away kiosk, there isn't much seating at Erich's Wuerstelstand. But the ambience is still pretty good, as you're surrounded by the daily bustle and sights of Chinatown.

A visit to Erich's Wuerstelstand is more than just food, it's the complete experience of talking with Erich Pollski, marvelling at the various articles / photographs pinned around the stall, and enjoying the sights of Chinatown while snacking on German / Austrian food.

Most Famous Austrian in Singapore

Germans are famous for two things: their frankfurters and their frankfurters. But Erich who makes German sausages is technically Austrian. Erich of Erich’s Wuerstelstand is famous worldwide. Austrian tourists come to Chinatown to visit him.

Decor: Just a kiosk at a back lane of Chinatown. A barrel for a table and few seats.

Service: Ok lor.

Food: The bread and sausages are made from scratch by him! AWESOME.

I had the thick cheese sausage ($3.50) in a bun ($1.50). I prefer thickness to length; it fills up the mouth better! IT IS AMAZING! The bread is so crusty outside but warm and soft inside. The cheese sausage has a dense orange cheese (cheddar?) that isn’t salty, so it won’t feel excessive, good till the last bite. Great value too. For hotdog stand to survive in Chinatown with all the delicious Chinese food, you know it’s going to be good.

Strangely, in this series of SausageFest, the shops are all opened by men. Truly a SausageFest. Purple Mustard has spectacular multi-dimensional sauces whereas Erich’s Wuerstelstand appeals to the simple, wholesome, homemade side of us. We like both of them equally and cannot decide which is better. We wish both of them can combine: bun and sausage from Erich’s and sauces by Purple Mustard.
