Will travel.

Thanks very much in advance.

    Perhaps Chameau?

      I don't know if it's available in sandwich form, but the chef/owner of Simon's Cafe in Sherman Oaks makes his own merguez. I had it one night for dinner, with frites, and it was delicious. Simon's Cafe is in Sherman Oaks on Sepulveda Blvd. just south of Ventura Blvd. in the block decimated by freeway construction (park in back, access by the street at the south end of the Sisley/office building parking structure).

          No. I'm pretty sure we had a cheese-filled pastry prior to our meat courses. It's Moroccan with items like Couscous Royale on the menu.

        well, Magic Carpet on Pico has merguez (margaz) sausages as an appetizer and they make melawach and pita sandwiches, so I'm sure you could request the merguez served in a pita with fixins.

          Vertical Wine Bistro - on the menu - "from the farm" (can't vouch for sausage, but crab cakes and the trio of fries were excellent!)

            I believe Normandie Cafe on Sunset & Doheny has one on a nice baguette, although there have been times when I've tried to order and they've been out, so maybe you want to call in advance just to make sure.

              La Dijonnaise in Culver City has a merguez sandwich. My brother-in-law and his wife are both serious merguez freaks, and that's what they had when we all went there several weeks ago. They loved it, said it was nice and spicy and flavorful. I didn't have a taste, but I'd take their word for it.

                Sounds great. I'm going to be at UCLA in a couple of days so it's probably a perfect time to swing by.
