Let's Talk Tripe again


When Jack Curvis - who was featured in 2006 on Hyde Daily Photo Vol.1 - retired a few years ago his tripe stall on Hyde Indoor Market was taken over by Lyndon Boot who continues to sell traditional tripe and cow heel as well as rag puddings, a range of low fat sausages and other delicacies.

A recent addition is a sculpture of a bull which has been firmly fixed above the stall.

A contribution to Blue Monday.

  2. Hi Gerald,

    This looks like a nice clean place to make a purchase. I'm glad it's stayed open. Thanks for making Blue Monday special.

    I'm looking forward to reading your comment on my Crayon Dress post. Please come back.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  5. Nice to see that someone keeps traditions going, but exactly what is tripe?

  7. The bull sculpture is something else. As I recall, tripe is something edible from the stomach of certain animals.

  9. Egads! As a vegetarian, I wouldn't be interested. No thanks! (But even in my carnivorous past I wouldn't have been interested.)

  10. I wonder if Lyndon and his family eat and enjoy the offal he sells? Good to see the 5* food standard rating. I wish him well in his venture.
