German Gymnasium

The famous German Gymnasium sits on the junction between Kings Cross and St Pancras International, at 1 King’s Boulevard in London. Part of London’s D&D restaurant group, German Gymnasium specialises in making warming “comfort food” from Germany. Chef Bjoern’s tasty dishes taste fantastic and always look great on the plate.

Perfect Sausage Preparation

Chef Bjoern tells us: “In Germany most sausages are fully cooked before they come to the shop. The best way to reheat them is to either pop them in the oven for a couple of minutes, so they get a nice temperature at their core. Or, when you’re in a restaurant, you heat them in a lightly salted water and then pop them on a really hot chargrill to give them that nice crispy char around the sausage. But be careful – don’t go too hot, because the sausage might pop!”

  • Create your guacamole
    First step is to make your guacamole which is the base of this dish. Peel and chop your avocado's into small chunks. Add them to a bowl with the lime juice, olive oil, fresh coriander and chilli. Mix the ingredients together until they are nicely blended.
  • Start building your dog
    Fry the chilli beef frankfurter for around 5 minutes until it has darkened slightly, heat for 10 minutes if you are cooking for frozen. Start building the hot dog up, add the freshly made guacamole to the bottom of your brioche roll. On top of the guacamole add the Chilli Beef Frankfurter.
  • Spicy Pulled Pork
    Add the pulled pork to a saucepan to heat up, heat for a couple of minutes. Once the pulled pork has been cooking add in the curry ketchup. Stir until fully mixed. Leave cooking for another 5 minutes until the pulled pork has been heated through. If cooking from frozen cook for double the amount of time. Place the spicy pulled pork on top of the chilli beef frank.
  • Sides
    Cook your Lamb Weston Twister fries in a deep fryer for a few minutes until they are crispy.
  • Layer Up and Serve
    Add the remaining toppings to your hot dog. On top of the pulled pork sprinkle on your crispy onions and some spring onion. Next add a layer of tomato salsa, topped with sea kale and fresh chive sprouting. Add the curly fries to the plate and enjoy!
