Herman Ze German – “Our wurst is ze best!”

Today is a good day… Not only is it Friday but its also the official opening day of the Herman Ze German’s second shop, fittingly on London’s sausage-loving Old Compton Street! Luckily for Cut The Cap we were at the launch party last night and can first hand vouch for superb quality of Herman’s German sausage – the Currywursts being particularly good!


Yep its true, from today, August 2nd if you head down to 33 Old Compton Street you’ll find Herman ze German offering the delicious selection of homemade Bratwursts, Currywursts and Meatballs that have made Herman ze German famous throughout our fair capital. After having sampled the delights last night we’re confident the new store will be a destination for hungry punters craving their fix of meat which is both delicious and actually healthy fast food.

Each wurst is made to an authentic German recipe, using the freshest free-range meat sourced from family-run, quality butchers in Germany’s Black Forest. In keeping with the tradition, the sausages come in three varieties, BratwurstChilli Beef and Brockwurst, all grilled to perfection and served with toppings of choice including sauerkraut and onions. As well as being gluten & lactose-free (AMEN!!), Herman ze German’s wursts have a meat content of 95% earning them the name of ‘Tube Steaks’. However, it is their Currywurst that is the real draw and after three years of perfecting the sauce, many would say it is the best Currywurst to be tasted both inside and outside Germany. Herman ze German’s food is not only delicious, fast and great quality, it is also extremely healthy. No oil is kept on-site therefore the pommes frites (fries) are baked in a high-tech German machine which uses heat, steam and pressure to get them super crispy and tasty – another feat of German engineering! There are also carb-free options for those keeping an eye on their waistlines. 

Quality and passion, combined with a cheeky sense of humour and a fierce spirit are at the heart of the brand, which was created by founders Florian and Azadeh. Their vision and attention to detail, alongside the best fast food available in London, have combined to create a unique dining experience that keeps bringing people back time and time again.

We were also fortunate enough to have a chat with the Herman ze German creators, Florian and Azadeh, to find out how this great sausage adventure started and unsurprisingly the concept came about due to a lack of their beloved bratwurst sausages amongst their English pork counterparts. After initially importing sausages to share with friends, hunger and demand set in and they soon set up home at their local pub with sell out success. Quickly they realised the popularity of these delightful Bavarian snacks and set about buying two trailers to tour UK music festivals. After a whirlwind summer of 2008 and the unquestionable popularity of these little wursts, Herman ze German was born!
