You’ll find these links in the freezer, conveniently arranged in packs of three and costing $3.99 per lb. This stuff is so good that we’re surprised they don’t sell it hot and ready-for-the-eating at the front counter. Perhaps if the demand increases they will — So, be sure to let them know how you feel about it when you pay them a visit.
If you weren’t paying close attention, we think that the fact that there is poultry instead of pork in these links wouldn’t be noticed. But, if you ARE paying attention you’ll recognize a subtler flavor and and a little smoother overall composition. Where the rice begins and the barnyard fowl ends is hard to discern. The rice is blended into the bird so that they become one and then the spices are perfectly balanced. The occasional green onion lets you know that there’s a lot going on in this link.
So, if you are looking for an alternative to pork boudin . . . . Or if you’re just looking for something super tasty to eat . . . we highly recommend you give this exquisite link a try. Let us know how you like it!
