It may not be much of a surprise to learn that I was lured into Wurst by a group of guys. We were saying good-bye to a teammate leaving Norway for his native Romania and the setting for this was Wurst – a newcomer near Youngstorget that serves up real sausages like Norwegians should have been eating for generations instead of the crap you find almost everywhere else in town.
Not convinced? Well, I’ll say one more word about Wurst pretty unique on the Oslo scene: beer. Yep, Wurst is the first place I’ve found that satisfies my taste for a quality sausage and a beer-geek-worthy brew.
The sausage was good, but I’ve had better and I did find it a bit pricey. They offer a variety of funky and classic toppings to slap on your sausage, but at a lower price I might have gone ahead and devoured another two or three only to find myself with the best hot dog I’ve ever tasted. Who knows?
With more economy-of-scale thinking they could make a killing on the sales of their excellent brews and it really, truly would be a sausage party for the ages. After all, who wants to pay top dollar for a sausage only to have it last a minute or two?
That being said, Wurst is a nice place and they have all kinds of musical and other events to spice up the sausage party. Let’s hope they keep it up.
