Thai Sausage: Are Any House Made?

I have recently fallen for Thai sausage I've had at Sripraphai and Ayada (both kinds there). Does either restaurant make their own, or are we in love with Oscar Maithai?

    Not sure about those two, but last time I was in Chao Thai I was told they make their own - both the sour and Esan sausages. I'm a huge fan of sour sausage but don't have the guts to try to make it at home :)

      It was Chao Thai sour sausages that started my jag. I will make Thai sausage somtime this winter from one or both recipes in Thompson's Thai Cooking and post about the result on the home cooking board.

        It's actually quite easy to make these at home. I've done it several times, tinkering with various recipes (Thompson, Alford/Duguid, etc), and have been happy with the results. The only thing I don't do is actually ferment the sausage--don't fancy having raw pork hanging around my apartment for days.

          I'm looking forward to making the sausages, but how you would rank the home made against the locals'? I had the sour at Chao Thai thursday which was a great accompaniment to the ss crab w/ mango sauce. The citrus from the lime and mango gives me the illusion I've had a healthy meal.
