Wurst Bar (Ypsi) update

trapani Jul 3, 2012 03:55 AM

It had been months since going to the Wurst Bar & I'm glad to report that it is alive & well. As wonderful as the sausages are, I tried the much-praised burger & it deserves the praise. The combo of meats makes for a uniquely flavorful burger, plus I went with the "southerner": topped with green tomato, pimento cheese & bacon. And a side of Tony Packo pickles.
My BF went wild over the rattlesnake-pork chorizo sausage: toothsome & spicey.

Our waitress was attentive & fun. The Wurst Bar will roll out a revised menu this Friday. I'm looking forward to checking it out!

    Thanks for the update.

    This is still a place on my list to try. I really want to try the burger with the peanut butter on it.

    Best regards, Tony

      I go there every couple of weeks, it's become kind of my neighborhood bar with the bonus of good food. They have some new items on the menu which I have yet to try. Last time I was there my friend ordered the new jambalaya. She said it was good and spicy, but I thought it was overpriced for what she got...looked like an awful lot of rice in the bowl. Scotch eggs are a nice low-carb option, and they now have sausages smoked over at Red Rock BBQ. Those have got to be good! And actual salads with greens in them. Since I'm a regular, I've never had bad service, but I've heard it to be iffy sometimes. The owner really does his best to make up for any glitches.

        The Wurst Bar menu has expanded again. More kinds of sausage, tater tot constructions (tots poutine). I had a fabulous salad of roasted winter vegetables atop very green frisee with fresh ricotta and toasted hazelnuts. Did I mention how succulent and tasty my merguez was?

          Yeah, you wouldn't expect it in a bar, but their salads are quite good. Great beer selection as well. One noteā€”to eat, try going on the early side: later on some nights the bar fills up with partiers, trivia players, etc. Of course, this is all to the good, since places that get good business at different time points are the ones that thrive.

              I was at Wurst (again!) on Wednesday. I lurv that place. Very busy and LOUD, since it was trivia night. Had the brat & bitter salad. Fresh greens, apple, blue cheese and a nice dressing with a grilled PBR brat on top. I'm trying to keep down the carbs, so this was just right. BF had the gravy burger: brisket, mixed with onions, thyme, and eggs, and fried in duck fat. Topped with caramelized onions, tomato jam, and gravy. Messy but delicious.

              And darn, I missed their holiday brat! http://www.seriouseats.com/2012/12/ch...
