Towards the end of one year, my friends thought that we weren't hanging out enough. It's true, we weren't. So they started Tuesday night get-togethers. Every Tuesday, we'll pick a bar to drink, eat, and hang out for a couple of hours. Whoever can make it will attend. If you're busy, it's okay. There's always next week. So this is Tuesday Nights on Tasty Eating where you will find bars that serve food and how we like them.
On this recent Tuesday Night, we headed out to: DBGB
We started with just a few appetizers to share because we were each getting an entree. We chose the Triple Dog Dare ($27) which included 3 sausages: tunisienne sausage, dbgb dog, and Thai sausage. The tunisienne (middle sausage) was a lamb and mint merguez with harissa on a bun with mint yogurt, cucumber, and red onion. This boasted very nice mediterannean flavors and spices. Any heat level was cooled off with the yogurt and cucumber. The dbgb dog was a homemade beef wiener with sautéed onions, mustard, ketchup, and relish. This was an upscale take on an American hot dog but using quality ingredients. The sausage had really good beef flavor. The classic toppings were definitely appreciated. And finally, the Thai sausage had a pork, lemongrass, and red curry link with green papaya and chili sauce. The flavors in this one was really interesting. I really enjoyed the Thai flavor of lemongrass and curry though the green papaya seemed missing. It came with greens and radishes instead. These vegetables still balanced well against the fatty pork and spicy chili sauce.
