Anywhere I can find British style bacon and sausage?
Hi! I've recently moved here from the UK and am seriously missing the bacon and sausage I could get there. I'm talking cumberland, chipolatas, lincolnshire, sage and apple, etc.
Does anyone know if local buthers make any of their own sausage similiar to those or do the cuts of back bacon that the Brits do? Thanks!
I would check with Mr. Canales at Canales Delicatessen in Eastern Market. Amongst the 20-30 sausages he stocks their may be some that fit the bill or he may be able to order some from his suppliers if he can lock down the product and he can match it to a vendor. I haven't seen back bacon but his traditional belly bacon rocks and he usually has Irish bacon (loin) back in his freezer. Some of his products are not displayed so don't be afraid to ask.
I was in Society Fair in Alexandria on Saturday and they have a small butcher counter that had fresh sausages and bacon. May not be what you are looking for but you could give them a call or visit.
there is a british import store in the clarendon neighborhood of arlington, on the north side of wilson blvd, east of highland street. (next to the boulevard woodgrill). (metro, orange line, clarendon stop).
