I was invited here for a business lunch and this time opted against the ‘lunch all at once’, going instead for the house-made country sausage with slow cooked and caramelized onions, on a fresh bake brioche roll for $15. I ordered a side salad because I was pretending to be healthy. Apparently the look on my face when I was served my lunch was utter shock. I mean, seriously? My plate looked a little odd. I was expecting a hunk of sausage on a big bun and instead got something of a wonder. However, it tasted damn good. The sausage, the bun, the onions – heaven. The salad on the other hand lacked anything of interest (it was dressed with a simple oil & lemon dressing).
The chef actually stopped by our table just after we had completed our meal and asked what we thought. I mentioned that I thought sausage was funny looking and she said that she spent some time in Germany, where street food is served with a focus on the meat. The bun is simply a holder of the sausage, so you don’t get your hands messy. She used this principle to design the country sausage dish. Once it was explained, it all made sense!
