Looking for Spanish Chorizo

Hi! I am making Seafood Paella this weekend and need some good Spanish chorizo, the fresh, garlic-flavored pork link sausage, not the milder Mexican chorizo. Or, I could substitute LinguiƧa, a similar Portuguese sausage. Does anyone have a good source for either of these within the 494/694/394 corridor?

  1. Try any Lunds or Byerly's.

    1. I know Seward has it. Also, St. Paul Cheese Shop and it's the same stuff as Seward. I think it's kind of everywhere once you know what you're looking for.


      1. Both Mississippi Markets.

        1. I've seen it at Coastal Seafoods as well. Probably available at Surdyk's too.

          1. Lunds and Byerleys don't have fresh Spanish chorizo but they to carry cured Spanish chorizo. I have used it in paella before. The brand is Palacious. I find it in the cold case near the deli.
