Eating Reindeer Sausage at a Food Cart in Downtown Anchorage

 There are several food vendors near Town Square in downtown Anchorage.

Eric bought a Reindeer sausage
with onions for us to share.

Reindeer and Caribou are classified under the same genus and species.  Reindeer have been domesticated. They have become a herd animal with a different diet than Caribou.  Reindeer aren't free to roam as Caribou do, making their meat distinctly different from their wild relatives.

Also, Caribou is a game meat and isn't allowed to be sold in Alaska.

The Reindeer Sausage & Onions
was very good.

Though the terms Reindeer and Caribou are used interchangeably,  Eric and I now know that there are distinct differences in the meat.
