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?
