San Diego Sausage again

e.d. | Jan 5, 200206:03 PM

A few months ago I posted about Caravan Market, a little sausage/imported food shop next to the Russia House on Adams that caters to Eastern European emigres and features some wonderful Polish and Russian style sausages. Other hounds immediately posted about Sausage King in Mission Hills.

I finally got to Sausage King when they were open (as I learned, they are closed on Sundays) and found a wonderful German style sausage shop. I hadn't heard so much Deutsch being spoken since I saw Das Boot with subtitles. Their bockwurst and liverwurst were both better than supermarket varieties, if not world class, and their Hungarian salami was incredible--nicely spicey hot from the use of a generous amount of red pepper. Their prices also seemed very fair. In addition, I was able to buy bonenkraut (winter savory) and other German treats. I will no doubt go back to sample some of their other sausages or try their wonderful looking ham hocks. Thanks to you hounds who wrote about the place.

I should add, though, that Hungary is about as far to the east as Sausage King goes. If someone likes Eastern European style sausages (like Krakowski or Russian salami, for example) Caravan Market would be the place to go.
