#LondonEating LW Guide Kim Recommends Herman Ze German @HermanFeeds

NEW! Where to grab a bite after a London Walk?

I've asked my London Walks colleagues to chip in their suggestions and I'll share them here regularly on The Daily Constitutional.

The Rules: All "reviews" were conducted anonymously and we paid our way. No kick-backs, no payola, no deals: these are the places that we London Walks guides - and London Walkers – choose when eating and drinking out and about in London. No buckshee burritos, nary a gratis granola bar was received in exchange for these recommendations.

And I promise never to use the word "eaterie". Seriously: have you EVER heard anyone SAY the word eaterie?

The Criteria: As well as the one-offs, the unique cafes, bars and stalls that make London so special, I'll be featuring reliable chains along the way. They have to be in London and within five minutes of the end of a London Walks tour.

I hope you enjoy them.

Have your say: As usual we'd like to hear from you – drop us a line with your own London foodie (and drinkie) tips.

Buon Appetito!

First up is award-winning London Walks guide & Daily Constitutional Associate Editor Kim…

Herman Ze German
19 Villiers Street WC2

Near the end of the Unexpected London walk – Fridays at 11:00am from Temple Tube

Unexpected London on Friday morning finds me lunching in an unexpected place. 

Half way up Villiers Street on the right hand side is Herman ze German whose "wurst is the best".  

It's pretty simple. Huge wurst sausages with fries and sauerkraut. My genuine German contact says it's the best place for curry wurst in London and I'm not going to argue. Ask for the crispy onions and tuck in.

Biggest problem with the place is the size – pretty small so you need to get there early or take away and the great thing here is that it's perfectly positioned for Embankment Gardens with benches and grass to sit on. Just make sure you have a pocketful of napkins as it can get messy and you don't want an unexpected mess down your shirt.

Unexpected London leaves from Temple tube at 11am on Friday. Great walk, great lunch.
