Following the success of their colourful, pint-sized sausage emporium next door to Charing Cross Station, Florian Frey and Azaadeh Falakshahi have brought their meaty Teutonic offering to Soho.
‘Our wurst is ze best’ is their slogan, and you can drop in to buy, eat at the counter or take away from a list that includes bratwurst, bockwurst, smoky pork, chilli beef and currywurst – chopped
up in a box and slathered with homemade tomato and curry sauce. All are gluten free and can be eaten with low-fat fries, potato salad or sauerkraut (unless you fancy a traditional roll). The owners
also do their own baking, so you can pick up croissants, brezels (pretzels) and sandwiches too. As for drinks, coffee, fruit juices and Fritz Kola should fit the bill.
The first time I noticed Herman Ze German was when my boyfriend spotted E! presenter Giuliana Rancic long leggedly walking out of the Villiers Street branch clutching a sausage. If someone that weight conscious was tucking into one of these, then it must be worth it.Herman has recently opened on Old Compton Street, conveniently near my office, so I decided to give it a go. I have a strange fondness for sausages (sounds weird, go with me) because, although I myself didn’t eat a lot of them growing up, my mother owned a sausage shop in Sydney before I was born. It sounded fantastic. It was called The Sydney Sausage Company and had every flavour possible and even had a write up in Vogue Living.

Soho has always been lacking in really good fast food. Yes we have our illegal hot dog traders who disappear in to the night at the sight of a policeman, or Subway, which everytime i walk past makes me feel physically ill with their hideous Italian footlong bread baking. Now, we have good German sausage on our doorstep – the pork type, in case i got any of your hopes up. Herman ze German is located on Old Compton Street in Soho, which is booming with quality new restaurants at the moment. Herman ze German restaurant is open till around midnight, for any of you alcoholics/foodies looking to soak up some of those gin and tonics.Of course, i don't need to tell you what they specialise in, but what you probably don’t know is that they have a surprisingly large (i just can't help myself now) menu, with three types of sausage to choose from, homemade meatballs, low carb options for the healthy ones, schnitzel and of course, fries - delicious ones...
