Track down the 'Bratmobile' for foot-long bratwurst and soft salted pretzels.
For father-son duo Steve and Ben Crick, it was a trip to Germany that inspired them to create the affectionately dubbed 'Bratmobile' food truck. After 33 years as a butcher, Steve was able to develop a foot-long bratwurst, then go on to create perhaps Brisbane's spiciest sausage, The Firewurst. These authentic German sausages have been a mainstay at food markets, festivals and breweries for over a decade — keep an eye on The Bratmobile's Facebook page for its next stop.
Can't wait that long? Order a preprepared feast via DoorDash instead. Dressed with sauerkraut, onion, mustard and curry tomato sauce, the bratwursts and kranskies are definite steps up from your average hot dog. Plus, you can add a soft salted German pretzel to really stir up those Oktoberfest memories (lederhosen optional).
