ISO Thai sausages to cook at home

Which markets or butchers make really good Thai sausages to grill at home? Prefer fresh over frozen, but beggars, etc.

I'm guessing East Hollywood / NoHo are probably the only likely areas, but I'd consider other areas, too.

  1. It's a restaurant not a market or butcher, but Renu Nakorn in Norwalk has fresh "Sai Oua"- Issan sausages.

    1. Bangluck? They have fresh meat/seafood sections. Try the one on Hollywood Blvd. If not, try Bangkok Market on Melrose: (323) 662-9705

        Does Bangluck make their own sausage? I figured they'd be a good start since they're one of the best markets.

          Not sure P.S. but, doesn't hurt to find out. I would try Bangkok Market. Lesser known than Bangluck (Off the beaten track, I suppose). but, still a great option.

      2. In East Hollywood, Silom Supermarket and the small market in the plaza where Sanamluang Cafe is located (corner of Kingsley).

          If Silom is the market I'm thinking of -- a block West of Ruen Pair -- I tried their issan sausages once, and was pretty disappointed. They were full of gristle, and the lemongrass pieces were large and stabby.
