A Half Smoke at Bold Bite

After Union Market, I headed to Union Station. I had a couple hours before I had to catch my train back to Newark.

I completely missed the food options here the first time around. Since I had some time, I walked around and checked out the food court located on the bottom level.

If there was one iconic food I really enjoyed when I was in DC a few years ago, it was the Half-Smoke – a large, smoked sausage made with coarsely ground meat of pork and beef. I couldn’t leave without having one. You can find one at Bold  Bite.

There weren’t many people around at that hour. No line. I ordered the DC Classic which was a Half-Smoke split down the middle and topped with the usual – diced onions, mustard, and chili. They have more creative versions as well along with hot dogs.

Half-Smoke and Fries

The Belgian-style fries were fried to order and you get your choice of one dipping sauce. I went with their housemade aioli. They were hot and crispy.

The chili is simple and not too thick. It’s served on a toasted buttered bun. The half-smoke had a nice snap to it. It was good, no complaints here.

There are tons of places that serve up the DC native sausage, but if you find yourself at Union Station and want a chance to sample it before heading home, Bold Bite is a good option.
