Sausage-fest for New Years - Need recs in SGV
I'm hosting a sausage-fest on New Year's Day. I'm hoping to serve different types of brats, sausages, bacon wrapped dogs, etc. I need recs for a place in the San Gabriel Valley that has a variety to choose from. Thanks!
SinBaLa has freshly made (uncooked) Chinese and Taiwanese sausages. Very very good.
Also, your local Chinese markets (99 Ranch, Hawai'i', 168, etc.) will also varying types of Taiwanese sausages, although none as good as the stuff at SinBaLa.
Just a bit west of the SGV (in Downtown) is Wurstkuche. They will sell their traditional and their exotic sausages for cooking at home! Bratwurst, Bockwurst, Kielbasa, Rattlesnake, Alligator, Rabbit, etc.

Anyone try Nicole's Gourmet Foods in SoPas? Looks like they carry a decent range of product:
Other than that, maybe Claro's Italian Market for Italian (several locs). Wonder where there's a Top Valu-type market out here? You could get chorizos and those little Salvadoran ones tied with corn husks. Mmm!
re: cant talk...eating
Claro's has the basic Italian and a couple variations in their frozen section. They also have Portuguese-style sausage, but one needs to check the dates. I picked up one a while back and didn't look at the dates - got home (to the Westside) and while putting it away, I noticed it had expired about three weeks previous...
