It’s springtime and my defending my champs are back out on the field. Nothing makes me more hungry for a good dog than baseball season, and with two amazing teams in the Bay it’s hard to miss the fever. Whether you are a die-hard black and Orange fan or you prefer the Green and Yellow, Rosamunde Sausage Grill’s newest store in Old Oakland is the perfect spot to catch a game, a dank brew, and a super tasty dog.
Rosamunde’s has three other locations in the Mission, the Haight, and Brooklyn, and has become famous for it’s equally delicious meat and vegan sausages. Grilled to perfection, you can find staples like louisana hots, brats, and italian spicy, as well as fancy house blended sausages like the chicken and habenero, fig and duck, or the wild boar. Vegan dogs are also killer, and pair that with all vegan sides like baked beans, crispy french fries, or a tasty green salad with sweet peppers and blue cheese and walnuts (hold the cheese for the vegans).
Rosamunde also has a stacked beer list, filled with local favorites like Linden Street and Lagunitas, as well as Belgium brews and specialty craft beers. Pair that with two big flat screen TVs playing your favorite team, outdoor seating for the sun-lovers, and super friendly service, it’s no wonder this spot is popular in the three coolest cities in the world.
I ordered on my latest trip to Rosamunde:
Louisiana Hot Link with Saurkraut (added ketchup and a little spicey dijon), the side salad (bring on the stinky cheese please), and a Weihenstephaner Hefe Weiss and sat outside (no games on, sad face).
Rosamunde only accepts cash, so come prepped with some crisp ones.
