Spanish Chorizo in DC/NOVA

paulistano Oct 22, 2013 12:57 PM

Anyone know where I can find Spanish-style chorizo in the area? I've visited various stores and international markets and have only found Latin American varieties.

    I also had no luck in finding it. I ordered mine from http://www.tienda.com It wasn't a local source, but they did have it. If anyone knows some area recs on this, I'd love to have them.

      You can find the Palacio Brand around - Both Hot and mild. Wegman's sells it as does Society Fair in Alexandria - And I know I have seen it elsewhere (Harris Teeter maybe?) but can't remember exactly where.

      This is the hard, cured chorizo, "Rough" grind...

        Cheesetique, I think - at least, I ate it there.

          I believe Canales has it. I know they carry 2 varieties, and IIRC one is Central American and the other Spanish (one is definitely milder than the other)

            Yes, they have it. I stock up every time I'm in the neighbourhood. I haven't found it anywhere else.

            I know you asked for DC/NOVA, but Bethesda has the best Spanish market in the area.

              I've bought it at the Fresh Market in Vienna, but I don't know if it's a regularly-stocked item.

                    Spanish chorizo is readily available at Chesapeake Wine Company in Baltimore (Canton neighborhood).

                      I think Balduccis in McLean has it.
