The German Hut is coming to Bastille!
German Hut Hot Dogs is where it all started – for us (we’re German) – and as you can read below for Hot Dogs themselves.
The German Hut offers the best German style Hot Dogs in this universe.
Our delicious sausages (choice of Bratwurst, Cheese Kransky and free-range chicken Frankfurters) are handcrafted by our 3rd generation German butcher and free from gluten, preservatives, artificial flavours and colours.
We offer a choice of freshly baked white as well as wholemeal rolls.
Toppings include slow-cooked Sauerkraut (pickled cabbage), crispy bacon bits, tasty cheese, caramelised shallot-onions, pickled gherkins and more.
Then there is a great variety of sauces to choose from such as mustards (sweet German, American and hot English), BBQ, tomato, chilly and our homemade secret Currywurst sauce.
Read a bit about the German Hut roots of Hot Dogs below:
Although Hot Dogs are widely associated with American culture, they do have German roots.
The word Frankfurter comes from Frankfurt, Germany, where pork sausages similar to hot dogs originated.
These sausages – Frankfurter Würstchen – were known since the 13th century.
Wieners originated in Vienna, Austria, whose German name is “Wien”, home to a sausage made of a mixture of pork and beef.
The origins of hot dogs can be traced back to around 1870 when German immigrant Charles Feltman began selling sausages in rolls on Coney Island, New York.
The association between hot dogs and baseball began as early as 1893 with Chris von der Ahe, another German immigrant, who owned not only the St. Louis Browns, but also an amusement park.
Come and visit The German Hut at Bastille Festival, East Circular Quay Village, on 12,13,14 and 15 July 2018.
