This place is really insane. Do you think you can find a true taste of Deutschland in the rainforest? The answer is yes! Located directly opposite to Kuranda Visitor Information Center on Therwine Street, German Tucker Wursthouse is nestled at shop 14 Kuranda Village Centre.
You won't miss this place as you will see a big yellow bright menu board filled with yummy options. Bratwurst, Weißwurst, Käseknacker, and Bockwurst are some that you can find here, of course, you also can find German beer.
When we arrived, the place was full and Patric, the owner, the cook, and the waitress were seen dancing to music behind the hot plate cooking some German sausages. He greeted us with his eyes still on the hotplate while following the beat. Then a lady showed up from behind the counter and told us to 'take our time while reading absolutely rubbish words on the menu board'. We knew she was joking because there was an English translation beside the German words.
After deciding what everyone wanted for lunch, Patric took our order, but he didn't write it on a piece of paper. It was 5 different dishes that we ordered and later on, we found out he did our order just right - he still remembers which one with sauerkraut and which one without, which one with onion and which one without. Very impressive! But when we wanted to pay for our meal, the lady behind the counter said just pay it after. She then added that customers only pay when they like their food. If they don't like it, they don't have to pay, just help them with the dishes after. Classic joke, made us all laugh, including our two little daughters.
You can see from some old photos on the wall and memorabilia that it is obviously important for the owner of this place. There was some merchandise that you can buy, such as a t-shirt or cap with "German Tucker Wursthous" written on it. This place is very humble with simple wooden tables and chairs inside the shop and also some outside the shop.
Our order arrived on simple woven basket-type plates and all sausages were served well-cooked. You can add any sauces on top - they put all sauces on the table. The sausages were big, juicy and firm, the bread rolls were fresh.
It's a great little place with a lot of character, a seriously friendly owner with insane humour, and more importantly, super tasty German food. Later on, when I browse about this place on the internet, I found their website. I also found that on their website there is a "sausages shot by sauces" game. This place is really insane!
