Sausage Art & Hallo Berlin – NYC

Sausage Art

I love art and I love sausage, but sausage art? Ummm, I’m not sure about this one. Supposedly, a few classic masterpieces, such as Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, were replicated using sausage in Russia and people were invited to eat them. Personally, I’m not sure I would want to eat cured meat on display in a public space. I don’t know what it’s like in Russia, but I know I wouldn’t want to eat something left out in the open in New York. Remember a few years back when a homeless man went into a deli and sprayed the buffet table with liquid containing feces? Spasiba, but no thank you.

That said, I do love sausage, and once after a few too many drinks, I even ate a kimchi hot dog after it had fallen wet side down in the back of a cab. Yes, these are the dangers of drinking. Crunchy bits on a hot dog are not good. So who am I to complain; edible sausage art may not be too bad. More pics of sausage art can be found here.

Here’s my idea of sausage art. The Hallo Berlin Cart on 54th Street and 5th Avenue is a great cart when you’re really hungry and need to gain a few pounds in the next hour. The sausages are a bit too salty and the leaden potatoes are greasy, but how could you not love the Stalin (Dictator) and the Churchill (Democracy) Specials. If you order the Churchill, you get a choice between two wursts. Order the Stalin and you get no choice. I’m still waiting for the cart to be updated with a Kim Jong-Il Special, no choice of wurst with a side of kimchi. Hey, a girl’s got to get her kimchi hot dog fix somewhere.
