Itailian sausage in Tokyo

rft Apr 24, 2008 01:01 PM

Does anyone know where I can get Itailian sausage in Tokyo.

Everytime I order it I get German style sausage with my meal.

I have tried the international grocery stores and no one seems to have it

    Do you mean American-style Italian sausage, usually flavoured with fennel? I don't think it's as readily available outside the US (and perhaps Canada), which would explain why you can't find it. But you can always make your own (plenty of very easy recipes to be found), and if you don't want to bother with stuffing sausage casings, just make patties or sausage-shapes. I also have a big bag of Italian sausage seasoning from Penzey's I'd be willing to share! (purchased by accident, I think, because I can't imagine I thought I'd need such a big bag of it!)

      I've seen Italian sausages at National Azabu. I think they even have two different kinds.

        yes they have hot and sweet italian sausages at national in hiroo. a brand i was unfamiliar with and johnsonville. i picked up 2 packs this weekend due to a hankering for italian sausage subs which was probably inspired by reading the original post :)

        On a related note, I feel the same way about Chorizo. I'm very tired of being tricked into eating mildly flavored hot dogs.
