It’s Oktoberfest year-round at Bestie (105 East Pender Street), which specializes in German currywurst.
Served atop a bed of stellar French fries, the plump bratwurst is sliced diagonally and topped with the characteristic curried ketchup ($9); ask for it schranke (with mayonnaise and green onions).
You can Prost! with a 24-ounce ceramic stein of craft beer, such as Powell Street Craft Brewery Old Jalopy Pale Ale ($9).
Other options include sausage with sauerkraut, and for brunch on weekends, specials like house-made spätzle and eggs. Be sure to end your meal with a fantastic ginger-cookie ice-cream sandwich.
