Kielbasa - where?

Postby 500CBFan » 13 Nov 2005, 18:19

Any stores that stock this? I was at Wellman's in Tianmu today, and although they quite a few packages in their freezer, they were all stamped "sell by May 2002" so I passed.

Tianmu Grocery used to be the only place I could find Kielbasa. I think Wellman's bought their stock when Tianmu Grocery closed and haven't replenished it.

Kielbasa is Polish sausage, very tasty. My stepfather is of Polish descent, and when I was a child, his parents used to send us homemade sausage (they lived in New York, we were in North Dakota). Nothing store bought ever tastes that good, but most of it isn't bad. I used to get the Hillshire Farm brand in California, but I've tried others that were better (can't think of the brands now).

I suppose I should resign myself to the fact that it's relatively unknown here in Taiwan and switch to xiang chang instead :)

Oh, it's what we Russians call kolbasa. How does it compare with kabanos? boerewors?

I've never eaten those, but I'd be willing to participate in any taste-testing experiments performed ;)

Theres this tiny chain of dog salesmen called TOP DOG. And i go there now and then. Great hot dogs. They sell em cold too. They dont make the dogs, some others do who have been in biz quite awhile.

Maybe you can contact em and set up a Taiwan branch? I bet it would make it. STart off in Danshui or something?

Maybe i should do that??

Just buy the dogs and ship em out there and u guys set up a stall?

p.s. the shack i go to has this 20 something tattooed to the hilt white chick (she may be ozzie) , whos super slick looking (big tits too) . Built like a brick shit house (in a good way) and killer smile too.

Its either her or a super tiny vietnamese honey working there.

Perhaps Mr. Sausage sells it, or can make it for you.

I sometimes go to the one in Berkeley, at Hearst and Euclid. Great sausages. Have been going there since I was a teenager.

I always got some kicks out of reading all the Libertarian news-clippings they have on their wall.
