Fresh boudin noir/morcilla/blood sausage in PGH?

hassenpfeffer Aug 11, 2008 07:14 AM

Anyone have a source for fresh-made blood sausage in Pittsburgh? None of the usual suspects (Parma, Whole Foods, Strip district butchers etc.) carries it, to the best of my knowledge — but I'm holding out hope that I can find a small, local, neighborhood (maybe eastern European?) butcher who does before I turn to internet sources like iGourmet or La Tienda. Thanks!

    Ever since the kishka guy on Southside sold to Silver Star, haven't seen much here in the way of blood sausage. The only menu I've seen it on was at Ibiza. I'd guess they don't make it there, but maybe they use a regional supplier and can help you in your search?

    I wonder if Tom Friday in Brighton Heights might make some? He does just about everything else related to offal. If not, bet he knows who might.

      It is the Silver Star packaging -- not fresh -- but if you are looking for it, they carry it at the Kuhn's on Banksville Road.

        Silver Star shows kishka on their web site.
        They have a retail outlet.

          Long-delayed followup: found kishka (variant spelling, kiski) at Parma Sausage in the Strip this past weekend.
