Taking a break from the West Coast bloggin, here’s blood sausage from George’s Spanish & American restaurant in Bushwick near the Flushing JMZ stop. I kept seeing it at a lot of the Latino restaurants and counters down there and was curious. Only $1.50 for a half link (around three inches). Inspecting the innards of the casing, I see grounded dark blood-cooked meat mixed with rice. It was very rich, salty and quite difficult to describe. I suppose it’s what you’d expect if you’re imagining what blood sausage taste like. I only ate two bites before giving in. It would be more ingestible if mixed with a big bowl of fried rice …a big giant bowl with a ton of rice.
