Al's Gourmet Sausage

Al's Gourmet Sausage is a food truck that can be found in Seattle, Washington. With several different types of sausages to choose from, it really is all about what you feel like having on a certain day!

Menu at the Seattle Center Mobile Feast (10/29/11)

Seeking something a bit unique, I got a Salmon Sausage Dog ($8): ground salmon sausage in natural casing, topped with grilled onions on a soft hot dog roll. One of the truck operators (perhaps Al himself?) was handing out free samples as well, so I tried the beer brat.

I enjoyed the ground salmon here, no mistaking that they use the fresh stuff out of the water (and not some canned junk). Unfortunately, I found the casing tough to bite through, and that detracted from the overall experience. The bite of the grilled onions worked well, and then topping the dog with some horseradish cocktail sauce added more zip and a touch of sweetness. The roll was nice and soft, but I would have liked the bun toasted a bit more here. As a note, the beer brat was good (no tough casing issues here), but not mind-blowing.

I might have just had an average experience here, but try Al's Gourmet Sausage and tell me what you think! 5.75/10
