Leberwurst Sandwich (WHAT)
with product from Hansel & Gretel (WHERE)
-Oksu (Joongang Heights Apts), Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-
Hansel & Gretel is a European-style deli. The Korean owner makes much of his own cold cuts and labels them in German, such leberwurst, which I grew up in America knowing by the English term “liverwurst.”
Whatever the name, I found the leberwurst to be milder, less livery, than what I had back in the States. The difference may reflect the charcuterist’s personal style, or a more authentic German style, or a dumbed-down style in deference to local tastes – with very little experience on the subject, I have no way of knowing. In any case, it was okay, good enough for a simple sandwich on white bread.
