Where to find Morcilla Sausage?

While in Argentina I tried morcilla, a blood sausage, which had been cooked over a barbecue grill and served as an appetizer with red wine. It was fantastic! There are many varieties from different countries but I am particularly interested in the style from the Río de la Plata region. Are there any markets or restaurants in the area that offer this type of morcilla sausage?

  1. Spanish markets carry it...I usually buy mine in the Rockville/Wheaton area (not sure where you're located). There's a spanish market next to the Dairy Queen across from Twinbrook Shopping Center in Rockville that carries a good one and also Rodman's on Randolph Rd.

    1. I recently had some morcila from La Tienda - a Latino food purveyor in NOVA. The sausage was tasty and fresh.
