Schaller's Stube Sausage Bar

GERMANY 🇩🇪

Ferdinand Schaller and Tony Weber met each other in New York City just before World War II and almost immediately decided to set up a shop in Yorkville. Ever since, it has been a special place. Recently the butcher shop and sausage maker has decided to add its own sausage bar next door to the provisions, offering an immediate taste of many of their creations.

Stepping inside the tiny place (far right in the photo above) gives an immediate impression of what is a really nice place to eat a sausage. The smells are the first introduction, and once your eyes adjust to the dark interior the sights follow with wood panels and German beer taps. Despite not being far away, it seems hidden from the street and commotion outside.


If you are not in the mood for a sausage, a beer and a side can be purchased for $8. You can use this to get a good German pilsner and the soft pretzel seen below. Schaller & Weber also makes their own German-style mustards, so I asked for the sweet option to go with the pretzel. It has a nice kick to it as well, more so than the Löwensenf I am used to.

The currywurst ($7, below) is a mixture of feelings, but the most important part shines. The sauce they make is excellent, a good combination of sweet and tart, with a healthy dousing of curry powder on top.


Unfortunately the bread, which comes out nice and toasty, is too wimpy and becomes soggy quite fast. If nothing is asked for specifically, they use a knackwurst for this dish. If possible, I would recommend swapping this out with their classic bratwurst, which Wechsler's Currywurst & Bratwurst used to use and seemed much more compatible with the sauce and firmer.

The prices are good, especially for the area. Eating a sausage, side, and beer comes in a few bucks short of a $20. If anyone decides to try their "Saigon Special" or "Chili Cheese Brat" let me know how that works out for you.
