Breizh Cafe, Paris FR
The waitress made sure that we understood that this dish wasn’t like American andouille sausages. Andouille in this case refers to chitterling sausages from Brittany which are made from pig intestines. I had already tried a piece of andouille at Ma Bourgogne but I wanted to try what I thought would be a more authentic product from Breizh Cafe since they specialize in food from that region.
I always love trying new and regional food items, so this was a challenge of sorts because I’m not a huge fan of intestine in the first place. I will say that this andouille was much better than the one at Ma Bourgogne. I definitely liked the variety pictured on the top row a little more because it had a more smokey flavor and that helped to mask the intestine taste. I really liked both their textures though, and eating them with buttered bread helped. 🙂
