“We clean the "S**t" out of Chitlins!”

The Gourmet Food Center is the place to go for hand-cleaned, fresh Chitlins!

Chitterlings, or what is commonly known as Chitlins, are an African-American delicacy that has become a Soul Food specialty that has been enjoyed by millions, especially during the holidays.

Traditionally, Chitterlings lovers have had to buy Chitlins and take them home to clean themselves, an overly tedious and time consuming job.

The Gourmet Food Center makes it easy for the consumer. At our 5,000-square-foot facility in the Eastern Market district, well trained, experienced and health-conscious food handlers clean the Chitterlings under strict Gourmet Food Center guidelines, preparing packaged, fresh and ready to cook Chitterlings.

Of course, discriminating connoisseurs can purchase fresh unprepared Chitlins, take them home and clean the gourmet delicacy themselves.
