The currywurst is Berlin's gift to the world of fast food. Served at Schnell Imbiss (fast lunch) stands all over Berlin. Usually served on a wax paper covered paper plate, a currywurst is a bratwurst cut into sections, smothered with tomato sauce, and then sprinkled with curry powder and paprika. A currywurst is usually accompanied by a brötchen (roll) and goes well with bier.
