ISO Thai sausages to cook at home

Professor Salt May 14, 2011 10:08 PM

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.

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

      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.

        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.
