Wvrst, Toronto, ON

After Gord and I saw Tower Heist, we walked to Wvrst on King Street W for supper.

It's the first time I've been there ... Gord's been a couple times.

There was hardly anyone when we got there about 5pm but it filled up rather quickly.

The layout is quite simple ... rows of long communal tables and chairs and seats at the bar.

It was quite busy. People would leave and be replaced with others.

They have a lot of interesting beers, both on tap and in a bottle. I had a couple Beau's Lug Tread Lagered Ale.

You have to go order your own supper at a separate counter and pay for it there. There is quite a choice of sausages ... traditional like beef, pork and chicken, to game like duck, wild boar, rabbit and kangaroo.

I ordered a Kranjska sausage (pork and garlic) in a bun ... it was $6. Gord ordered a duck sausage (maple and fois gras) sausage and onions in a bun ... it was $9. So sausages aren't cheap. We split an order of large fries ... we had curried dipping sauce (which I liked) and black pepper and onion dipper sauce (which I didn't like). At $5.50 for fries, they aren't cheap either.

That's my sausage in front. It was good ... really juicy.

Gord said his was okay, not great. He liked mine better.

They give everyone a couple raffle tickets. At 6:30pm, they give away a couple tickets for the Maple Leafs' hockey game ... alas, we didn't win.

I liked it there and would go back. My big complaint is that it's really LOUD there. Gord and I were sitting across from each other and we had to practically yell at each other to talk.
