Merguez sausage?

estone888 Feb 11, 2009 09:06 AM

Anyone know a good market to buy some? I need it for dinner for tonight. Ideally in Glendale, Hollywood or Burbank. If I absolutely have to, I will go to Super King. It's a great market, but it is the single most aggravating parking lot in America. Worse, even, than the Trader Joe's on Hyperion in Silverlake - and that's saying something.

    nicole's gourmet foods in south pasadena has them. you might want to call in advance to see if they're in stock.

      If you're ever in OC, go to Mattern Deli on Chapman in Orange. They have the best I've ever had outside of France. They aren't called Mergeuz though - but you will recognise them.

        I just got back from Nicole's in S. Pasadena. They had merguez, only frozen. How good they are, remains to be seen. I hadn't been there before. It's a very nice little, if expensive, market.

            If the ones from Nicole's are Marcel et Henri, they're okay if you really like lamb. Could be that mine were just too old (they'd been in the freezer over a year!), but the ones I brought to last summer's Sausage Esssstravaganza had a pretty strong flavor. I liked it, but some others seemed to find them too stout.

              Charlies kosher delicatessen. He makes his own Merguez and it is awesome. He also freely samples the many other things he makes. Ask for Herschel or his assistant Freddy.

                I second Hadar. Really sharply spiced.

                I've seen it at Whole Foods. They have it at the one on Fairfax and 3rd -- you could call the one in Pasadena.
