blood sausage

  • m

I'm looking for great blood sausage in San Frncisco. I have enjoyed it at Le Central but the restaurant seems to be going downhill a bit recently. I tried it at a very Parisian (i.e. unpleasant and snobby)place in Belden Alley so please don't recommend that unless you think it is beyond wonderful.

So, any comments/ideas?

thanks, Mary Mocine (Joan's sister)

        I think she was asking about restaurants that served blood sausage.

          Then visit FC's web site and call them to ask what restaurants they might be selling the blood sausage to. It's might be worth the effort.

            I don't belive any restaurants have Fatted Calf's blood sausage.

              I believe they have in the past, not specifically sure about today. I know the pate has certainly been on local menus. I do know for a fact I've been beat out of my choice on sausage due to one of the chefs at BayWolf beating me to the punch. May have been for his private stash, though.
              I'll ask when I go to pick up my custom sausage load on Saturday, I can hardly wait.

                Here are a few places where they have or have had FC's sausage.

                Hog Island Oyster, Market Bar, Slow Club, Out
                the Door (pate), Luka's Tap Room, Lalaime's and lots more.

                Oh you bet those little happy sausages are making the rounds.

                  I was talking specifically about blood sausage. It's a tough sell for restaurants.

                    Ah yes, that was the topic of the thread wasn't it. Got a little vague towards the and and off I went. Sorry about that.

      2. B44 is on belden lane as well, next to that snotty French place (do you mean plouf?). Anyhow, they (still?) serve blood sausage. They call it morcilla.

          The Belden French place that serves blood sausage is Cafe Bastille. They also have andouillette on the menu, but it's actually some other kind of tripe sausage.

        2. It's been a year or so, but had an excellent BS at Ramblas in the Mission.

          1. South Park Cafe in SF, 108 South Park Street has Fatted Calf Blood Sausage.
