SF Best: Rosamunde Serves Serious Sausage Selection

Rosamunde Serves Serious Sausage Selection

I like the simplicity of a place that does one thing and does it really well. That doesn’t mean you’re left without the chance of menu indecision, but it probably does mean that anything you choose will not disappoint. Rosamunde, in San Fran, is just that kind of place – serving 20 different types of sausages and an equally impressive line-up of bottled and local craft brews {menu here}. A match made in heaven.

Each day these artisans blend and stuff the fresh sausages using every type of meat you can imagine {beef, pork, veal, chicken, lamb, boar, duck} and pair them with flavors that just make sense. We decided to order up five different handmade selections and do a tasting – duck with figs, spicy Italian, chicken cherry, wild boar with apple and a spicy, smoked beer sausage. We wanted to add the chicken habanero {smoked with tequila and habanero} to the mix, but they were already wiped out of that fan-fav. The surprising winner on my plate was the chicken cherry. It was bursting with juices and flavors unlike I have ever experienced with a sausage — it was like a good roast chicken in a convenient sausage package. The beer sausage was a very close second, because really, how could anything be bad when it’s made with beer?

The Skim: If you’re looking for “neighborhood butcher meets fast casual dining”, Rosamunde is your place. You can enjoy a brew and brat at their small neighborhood shop or take away fresh sausages to cook from the comforts of your own Weber. Either way, be sure to sample a few and be ready to think of the plain ‘ole Italian sausage as a thing of the past.
