Grand Central Market is still slowly rolling out their revamp in Downtown L.A., bringing in new dining options for city dwellers like Sticky Rice, Valerie Confections, G&B Coffee, Horse Thief, DTLA Cheese and Eggslut. The latest addition, a German street-food stall serving currywurst, is planning on opening next month*.

Berlin Currywurst first made a name for themselves at their Silver Lake and Hollywood locations, slanging sausages in a unique ketchup curry sauce with slices of hearty bread. The post-WWII invention is also usually served with an order of fries and beer, naturally.

It's also known for being sold at road stoves or in subway stations, so the new location seems to be a particularly good fit.

In addition to the standard sausages, the GCM location will also be serving breakfast. That'll include dishes like Fleischkaese Broetchen, a German breakfast meatloaf served on bread with an over-easy egg on top. (Even in Germany it's de rigueur to "put an egg on it.")

Berlin Currywurst won't be the only one opening up within the coming weeks. Olio Pizzeria, Wexler's Deli and The Oyster Gourmet are also slated for March openings.

You can follow them here for more updates on the opening.

*Eds. note: a previous version of this post said that Berlin Currywurst is already open, but in fact, it is scheduled to open next month.
