Everybody Must Get Boned by Meddlesome Moth's Bone Marrow

Categories: Eat This
In an episode from last year, Anthony Bourdain described bone marrow as his "desert-island" dish. Maybe when he comes to town in October, we'll rent some sort of City of Ate van and kidnap the food writer (black hood and all) and chuck him toward the door of the Meddlesome Moth. "Dude, get the bone marrow," we'll tell him, and drive off.

On a beer excursion on Saturday, my brother and I ordered a share plate of the marrow, along with the sweetbreads (seen in the background above with bacon jam. Yes, bacon jam) and some of their buttery-lemony mussels. The loaded bone comes split down the center with a salsa verde spread and fried capers -- a nice acid bite -- and about half of a fresh baguette. Punch-to-the-head good.

I couldn't tell you what Moth beer goes best with bone marrow because I'm not a beer critic. Also, all things go with bone marrow. At The Moth, Bone marrow goes best with more bone marrow.

I've been a big fan and herald of Moth's bone marrow since nearly day one. As far as what beer to order with it, can't go wrong with what the menu suggest - an IPA!  Although I do enjoy this with a Kwak as well, plus drinking from that glass is just plain fun ;)

Good call. I was drinking the Green Flash IPA at the time. Can't go wrong there.


it's like butta baby


This is one of my favorite dishes in Dallas. The salsa verde really makes it. I wasn't as impressed with their sweetbreads, though, they might as well have been chicken nuggets.

Love sweatbreads.

The key is finding a place that serves a LOT!  They don't keep long, and have to be soaked to remove the outer membrane.

If the restaurants inventory turns over, they are great
