Sausages at Roma Deli-- Praise Jebus, are they grand!!

My regular Italian sausage purchases come from Huntington Meats at the Farmer's market, and occasionally from Monte Carlo in Burbank. But Roma Deli's sausages just knock these out of the ballpark and to the moon.

Not only were the sausages incredibly well spiced with a nice large, meaty grind, but they literally burst with juice, and this was after having sliced them into circles and stewing them in a red sauce. Even my Lovely Tasting Assistantâ„¢, who chides me for any and all fatty meat purchases, had to admit they were spectacular.

Get some now. Seriously.

  1. I tried them for the first time last Sunday (thanks, Will!) and they ARE really good!

    1. I usually get my Italian sausages at Porta Via (it's on my way home), but it sounds like I should swing by Roma and try theirs as well. Have you tried the ones at Porta Via, and if so, how do they compare to Roma's?

      2. Been getting my sausages from Roma's for years - beats anybody's - at first he only made one kind, now he makes a sweet and a hot. Love the hot.

            In Pasadena, 918 North Lake Avenue north-east corner at Mountain Street.

            Take Lake Avenue exit on the 210 and go north.

                    I've seen Tates elsewhere...pretty sure I've seen them at Gelsons/WF

                      Gelson's has big sales on Tates two or three times a year. I always go for the walnut chocolate chip.

                      Also, I wonder how TJ's Highbrow Chocolate Chips Cookies compare. They are the same shape/size/look as Tate's. Rumor's are Tate's makes them:
