- BratwursthäusleFirst to ReviewJul 05, 2012
Bratwursthäusle is one of four or five restaurants in Nürnberg owned by the same man. All specialize in the marvelous Nürnberg Bratwurst which are small breakfast sausage size bratwurst served with either potato salad or sauerkraut on pewter plates. All of the restaurants are quite rustic and very cozy. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is all German. The other restaurants in Nürnberg are "Bratwurstglöcklein" in the "Handwerkerhof" just inside the old city, "Bratwurstherzl," "Goldenes Posthorn," plus another "Bratwurstherzl" in Munich (very near Victualienmarkt). I have dined at each of the restaurants numerous times and they have never disappointed. Always wonderful.
(Another poster has translated "Bratwursthäusle" to "Roasted Sausage House," which is a little misleading for two important reasons (at least to Nürnbergers). "Sausage" can mean just about anything. "Wurst," however, is governed by German Purity Laws and may include meat, fat, and spices. No other ingredients can be added (grain fillers, etc.) and still be called "wurst." Sausage could have fillers and other byproducts. Second, "häusle" means "little house," with the implication of charming and cozy or "gemütlich." It's kind of like going to Grandma's house for some good food, wine, beer, and fun. Just a little clarification.)
