I lived in England doing some study for a while and fell in love with the sausages over there. Does anyone know where there is a butcher or some other source where I can get some western style sausages? Something that is not a Sichuan sausage?
Don't get fooled by the sausages in the supermarkets theyre nothing like it. I buy them of TaoBao then they will get delivered cooled quickly. Metro might have some too I never checked.
First Chapter catering at the Bookworm do Western-style sausages:
I've heard that there's a proper English sausage festival held every weekend at
ha ha ha
I would be glad to start making sausages, next to all other Western food stuffs we make here @ Nuhi's, but haven't got around to it. I'll start out with pate (pork and chicken liver pate, for a start) soon and hopefully sausages in January.
I'll post here when they are ready :-).
i agree on the supermarket stuff. that stuff is nasty and overpriced. and that means all places in chengdu including metro (as germans corp they could do better). i'm getting stuff from a german butcher in qingdao
Heard there's an Australian guy making sausage for his restaurant art chengdu. Pics he post on his wechat looks good at least. Or you can always get some from kempinski deli shop
I went to the Bookworm to try their Big Breakfast this morning, because I read this thread and saw they have English sausages.
The sausages were awful, I didn't eat them. My wife had to spit her's out and she's Chinese, eats anything! The Bacon wasn't anything like the bacon I know and love. The beans were stone cold.
The rest of it was nice, so I suggest if you want to try their breakfast, go for the veggie option. If I find any good sausages, I will post about it here.
