Where to find authentic Spanish chorizo?

Need Spanish chorizo for a recent Splendid Table recipe (Roasted Cod with Chorizo Vinaigrette). Any ideas where I might get this in LA. (I live mid-Wilshire but willing to travel to get authentic ingredients.)

  1. Found it at Surfas. (Should've checked there before posting.)

        1. For quick and easy... surfas... for more choice and cheaper, La Espanola Imports in San Pedro on weekends...

            And, while you're picking up some authentic spanish chorizo, you can also drop $1425 on a bone-in acorn fed jamon iberico!

          2. About the only thing I buy at Monsieur Marcel's is the Palacios brand, primarily for making paella. The non-spicy one is wonderfully smoky and aromatic... not necessarily the most traditional sausage for paella but it imparts a flavor that I really miss when it's not there.
