Local Loving: Rosamunde's Sausages

Local Loving: Rosamunde's Sausages

Anytime I end up drinking in San Francisco's lower Haight district, I have to make a pit stop at Rosamunde Sausage Grill. The hole in the wall joint is perfect for a meal on the go or for grabbing a sausage to enjoy at a nearby bar. One yells his/her sausage of choice — beer, Italian, smoked haberno tequila chicken, lamb, etc. — over the crowd. After a seven-minute wait, another quick decision for toppings (onions, kraut, grilled hot or sweet peppers, ketchup, mustard) is made before being met by pure sausage bliss.

Despite its tough appearance, Rosamunde's succulent, juicy sausages are a sophisticated, grown up take on the classic hot dog. The gourmet fillings — sun dried tomatoes, cherry, fennel — enhance the flavor of the thick skinned sausages. I love this place for its unpretentious atmosphere, delicious food, and ability to satiate after too many beers.Have you been to Rosamunde's? What did you think? If you aren't in the area, what's your favorite local spot to go for sausages or late night food?

I'm not too far and I hoping to take the hubby and baby to the city soon so maybe we'll have to stop there. Oh and Yum when you go to Chicago you need to go to Gene & Jude's it's not in Chicago itself, but a nearby burb. They don't have they're own website (they're small) but here's a yelp link about them. They put hot delicious greasy fries right on top of a hot dog that is dressed with mustard, onion, sport peppers, and picallili relish (the neon stuff). It's to die for.

Yeah, Doug has been working the counter every time I've been there. The hours are bad, and the wait can be an hour or longer, but it is worth it.

Jenhead, I am *dying* to try Hot Doug's! Rumor has it the hours are horrible but you get served the dogs by Doug himself!

I live in Chicago. My favorite place to get sausages is Hot Doug's. It isn't open late, only Mon-Sat 10:30am - 4:00pm, but they are delicious. There are descriptions on the website: Gourmet sausages and duck fat fries... yum yum yum. :)

Sadly, I no longer have a late-night food option where I live. I used to go to the greasy kebab vans on the street during grad school. Now, I'd have to drive somewhere to get late-night grub.

I love Rosamunde's, although I always forget to let my sausage cool a little, and the meat juice scorches the roof of my mouth.

My mouth is watering at the idea of a lamb sausage! I was just listening to a thing on the radio this morning saying that down here in San Diego, the latest thing is Tijuana-style hot dogs: bacon-wrapped hot dogs. It's my mission to try one this weekend :D

It is worth the wait (which can be just a little bit longer than seven minutes). My favorite? The brats (they give you two) with sauerkraut and hot and sweet peppers. The best part? The substantial bun (no crumbly hot dog bun), which they grill for you.

I loves me a good beer sausage. It reminds me of my childhood...going to my bro's baseball games. Ahhh...those were the days. :)
