Klobasa (Slovak) sausage in LA area?

  • s

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?

    1. 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.

      1. I'm bumping this to look for new recommendations.

          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.

            Klobasa is quite spicy. Spicier than Kielbasa. The German food I've tried was not spicy at all. But I guess if they're trying to fill a void. . . .
            I'd love to hear your report.

            1. re: SteveTimko

              Since you bumped your 7 year old thread does that mean that you checked out the locations suggested back then and couldn't find the klobasa at any of them (since you didn't report back at that time about finding any)?

                I never got out to Torrance but I checked the others and no Slovak sausage there.

                  Have you tried Schreiner's Fine Sausages in Montrose? Didn't see that listed and they have good stuff.

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

          1. 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
            (310) 276-1331

            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!?!

            1. 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.

                also, otto's on clark near buena vista has a nice but small selection of hungarian meats. again - forall i know they're hungarians from slovakia. or not.

                give the places a call.

              2. I'm not sure how Slovakian sausage compares to Hungarian sausage, but my Hungarian friends tell me that International Meat in Garden Grove carries the best Kolbasz and Hungarian salamis.
