Chinese Sausage

Does anybody have a suggestion on where to pick up good Chinese sausage in Chinatown? The one that my family used to get a lot must have changed ownership or something many years ago and then quality and taste became different. One of my favorite things is just steamed Chinese sausage over rice.

    1. go to sun ming jan on hester between forsyth and eldridge, best chinese sausage and general dried meats i've had in chinatown, not sure that they really speak english and its all written in chinese, but u can just point

      they make all their own stuff

        Thanks fellas. Lau, I'm definitely going to try this spot.

        Yea, scoopG, I go to that butcher shop on Bayard relatively frequently. They have a few kinds, if I recall. I've always wanted to buy a bunch of different kinds and just do a taste test, but never got around to it.

          Great tip - any particular favorites?

            i like the regular ones and the kind with duck liver (very dark brown)

            they also have this salted duck that I like
