    Where are you located? You can usually find plenty at Asian supermarkets but the selection can vary.

    San Gabriel region is your best bet to find all the cow hearts, honey comb tripe, pigs feet you want.

      While this thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/482024 is from 2008 the ideas about where to purchase offal are still valid. One other suggestion is Korean markets in the K town area would be good sources as well.

        In the Valley (Van Nuys area) I go to Thai Markets - usually Bangluck on Sherman Way - for the meatier bits. For the squishy bits, I've had better luck in Russian markets especially when looking for lamb brains, kidneys, and, yes, testicles.

          Some Armenian or Middle-Eastern markets will also carry these items. Golden Farms on San Fernando Rd carries these items... 6501 San Fernando Rd, Glendale, CA 91201

            I've seen brains, tripe, pizzle, liver, blood, trotters, snout, oxtail and other yummy parts at Jons on Vermont/Hollywood. Probably not all on the same day, but just on random visits.

              Look into your local 99 Ranch Market as well. Asian markets often have the "naughty bits". That's where I get mine when I'm feeling offal. I feel better later. (Too obvious? Sorry.)

                In case you were hoping for more... humanely raised offal (grassfed, no antibiotics, etc) I would suggest you check out Lindy and Grundy. They will probably have whatever you're looking for, but of course you have to pay a premium
