I was very excited to head over to Wvrst for many reasons. For people who know me personally, my dream of opening a hot dog restaurant is no surprise, but for those who don’t, there it is! I love sausages on pizza, pasta — anything, really. My interest was definitely piqued by Wvrst, so I headed over quickly.
When I first got in, I just didn’t understand how it would work. The King and Bathurst venue was huge! It felt like a big, communal beer hall. How was a hot dog restaurant going to work in this kind of space? To my surprise, the restaurant handled it well. It felt like a fun and easygoing place, and I had a great experience.
The food is simple, but delicious. They offer three or four great condiments to complement their deli fridge full of sausages organized by country. Their spicy beef sausage was delicious with fries. The bun was thick and soft, pairing perfectly with the sausages. The beer list was also good, giving the venue a pub feel. What’s even better, the prices are very reasonable, with each meal costing about $7 or $8 and only taking ten minutes to arrive.
Wvrst is great for a relaxing bite after work, or even better for a big gathering of friends on a weekend. It isn’t the greatest for a date in my opinion, but hey, if her passion is hot dogs, it should be a winner, just like Wvrst.
