Gorging on Gourmet Sausages and Beer in Los Angeles, California
If you're craving sausages and beer, look no further than Wurstküche, located in the downtown Arts District. Waiting in line at the cramped counter, you can't help but hungrily eye the sausage display case, which features classics (bratwurst, hot Italian), gourmet (kielbasa, mango-jalapeño-chicken), and exotic (Cajun-style alligator, duck-bacon, rattlesnake-rabbit). Pick a sausage and a couple of toppings, add an order of twice-fried Belgian fries, and make your way to the spacious, beautifully designed dining room. Sit at a communal table, or perhaps on the small patio. Better yet, grab a seat at the back bar, the better to pick from dozens of Belgian and German beers. Minutes later your food arrives; one bite and you're in beer hall heaven.
