L.A. Butcher that has Oxtails

I'd like to try to make oxtail stew, but can't seem to find them anywhere. Any suggestions on a butcher in Mid-City/Westside Los Angeles that sells oxtails? Thanks.

  1. ralph's has them on national and sawtelle usually.

    1. Koreatown Galleria's market always has a great selection. It's at Olympic and Western.

      1. Any market that caters to a Hispanic community will have oxtails: Vons at SM Blvd and Barrington for instance.

        1. Most Asian markets will carry it. Used to be that oxtails were considered "peasant food" and inexpensive.same as with beef tongue, chicken wings, etc. Not anymore. People's tastes have changed?

          1. the butcher at the farmer's market will definitely have them and they will be really fresh!.
