Czech or Polish butcher in or near Alexandria
I will be in Alexandria for 10 days from the 2nd of July until the 12th and would love to find a good Czech or Polish butcher so that I can bring some good stuff home to South Carolina. Can anyone steer me in the right direction for this? I will have a car, so no problem getting there. Thanks!
there's the *german* gourmet deli near bailey's crossroads. it may or may not fit the bill... but it is close-by to check out. http://www.fairfaxcountyva.com/index.php?action=sponsor&id=446
i'd like to try those delis in baltimore, though!~ ;-)).
Well worth a trip is Krakus Deli in Baltimore. http://www.krakusdelibaltimore.com/
Among others they offer fresh sausages, Hams, Kishka and he smokes his own sausages there in the store. Especially good is the smoked, garlicky hunter sausage and pork tenderloin and ham kielbasa.
You might want to try the Kielbasa Factory in Rockville. It's the only Polich meat place in the area that I know of. I haven't been there, though; so I can't attest to the quality. At the very least it would be a little closer than Baltimore (basically just follow the beltway up into Maryland).
Here's their website: http://kielbasafactory.com/
