KIPFERL: A SMITHFIELD SAUSAGE









A swift lunch today after a spending a splendid morning making chocolate under the tutelage of master chocolate maker, Paul A. Young in Islington.

It was my new chum, excellent food writer, William Leigh who told me that there was “this new Nordic place near Smithfield market doing hot dogs” which got me excited, particularly as one of the favourite snacks during my journey was at Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, a hot dog stand in Reykjavik.

Well, he was only slightly out. Kipferl is in Smithfield, but is Austrian, has been around for five years and doesn’t serve hot dog sausages but Teutonic wurst. Still, I can forgive him, because I have been walking past this place for as long as it has been opened and never stepped inside, which means I have been missing out on a very decent lunch option.

Our “Kipferl Special” to which we added an extra debreziner sausage came with three salads of cucumber, beets and potatoes with the inevitable slice of rye bread and for £7 provided a filling lunch to take the edge of the jitters caused by a morning spent sampling so much chocolate.

Now, I just need someone to tell me where I can find a real Nordic hot dog. Any ideas?

The Nordic bar on Newman Street in Fitzrovia unsurprisingly offer Nordic hot dogs. I have not tried them so this is a suggestion not a recommendation. I am not sure I would recommend the bar during Christmas party season. The same folk used to own a hot dog place on Wardour Street called Olly Olson but that has gone now.
