Klobasa (Slovak) sausage in LA area?
- Steve Timko Oct 24, 2003 09:32 AM
Okay, since no one could help me find a Surti or Gujarti style Indian restaurant, now I'm asking for help finding Klobasa sausage. This is the Slovak version of kielbasa or Polish sausage. Any ideas where I can find some in the Los Angeles area?

Klobasa is a generic term for sausage either in czech or slovak....I grew up in the Czech Republic. . .follow petradish suggestions and have a taste test to see which "klobasa" you prefer.
They come either smoked or au natural.
Funny you should ask. I was sitting here looking at a menu I picked up at the Upland German Deli (983 W Foothill Blvd, Upland) yesteday and saw Klobasa listed as one of their meat selections. I thought it was kielbasa misspelled. Haven't tried their food yet, but stopped by yesterday to check the place out and they have a great assortment of sausages and lots of other German specialties. You can either order straight-up deli or they have a menu and a few tables and will prepare a meal for you to eat there. Will post back after I give them a try.

Huntington Meats at the Farmers Market has a decent sausage selection. Don't know if they have Klobasa, though.

Maybe you could have someone make you some actually. Like maybe the Sausage Kitchen:
European Deluxe Sausage Kitchen
9109 W Olympic Blvd Beverly Hills, CA 90212
They make the fresh sausages every day. Call 'em up, and maybe if they already make kielbasa, they can just add some spice (or maybe you find 'em a recipe and they could do it). Who knows!?!
You might also try The European Sausage Factory in a dingy industrial park on the south side of Saticoy just west of Coldwater. They have many eastern European sausages as well as smoked meats, fish, and desserts. Its somewhat startling to walk through the door and be blasted by so many delicious odors. Not sure if they have what you want, but I'm sure you'll find something you like.
there's an hungarian butcher in valyermo with several kinds of kolbasz. it may be just close enough for you. maybe not.
