OC: Best place to purchase kielbasa?

JBinOC | Jul 16, 2006 09:30 PM

Hello friends,

Tell me where you would go in OC if you wanted to purchase one of Poland's special gifts to the world, i.e. KIELBASA.

The other night, after an instant hankerin' for the stuff, I placed a package of Farmer John's kielbasa in my Vons shopping cart. My only regret is one of you wasn't there to smack me in the head. It was absolutely awful...salt composition was about 1000%, and 'twas predictably 'processed-food' bland. No amount of onions, relish, etc. could salvage it.

This bein' grilling season, surely I'm not the only one who would like to be enlightened. Any Polish/Slavic delis or butchers to recommend...or even just good Orange County sausage purveyors? Thanks!
