  1. Uwajimaya has plenty. It's usually in a cold case across from the meat counter.

    (BTW, you can get eggs and Portuguese sausage over rice in their hot case in the deli/food court area in the mornings. I'm more of an oyako-don guy for eggs over rice, but it's there.)

      Uwajimaya carries (at least in their Beaverton, Oregon store) a couple brands, one of which is made in Hawaii, possibly the brand eaten on the Big Island.

      I just made some "homemade" Portuguese sausage a week or two ago. Good stuff. :-)

    2. BH,

      Safeway carries a pretty decent Linguica. I think the brand is called Silvas.

        I've seen a California brand of linguica at Grocery Outlet

      2. I can't vouch for authenticity, but Uli's Sausage in the Market sells linguica.

          If he makes it, I bet it is awesome! ... Just the fact that he makes his own sausages and they are fresh is reason enough to give them a try!

        2. Uwajimaya carried a couple different brands - both frozen and unfrozen. Central Market in Shoreline also carried frozen. I suggest you also try spicy longanisa (Uwajimaya carries fresh in their meat dept and frozen) - it's sweeter, but really yummy.

          If you're looking for Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice for breakfast (YUM!), try Kauai family resto in Georgetown, L&L in Lynnwood or the Uwajimaya deli.

          1. DD Meat Market in Mountlake Terrace includes a Portuguese linguica style sausage in their long list of fresh (and frozen) sausages. I can't vouch for its authenticity. I'd suggest calling to see if they currently have a batch on hand.
