We got a Bratwurst and a Danish Apple sausage.

As demonstrated recently by my trip to Baker's, it can be difficult to find high quality interesting foods at the local supermarket chain. Unless your preferred bread is Wonder and you like your food in thick packaging, you might want to branch out here and there and shop for food at other vendors. Stoysich House of Sausage--not to be confused with Frank Stoysich Meats at 51st and Q--has been churning out a variety of sausages and other products for a very long time. Family owned, using locally raised meats, with imported spices, from recipes handed down through generations, by a very large man in a white blood smeared smock. Sounds swell, dudnit? Unfortunately, the three sausages we sampled were consistently quite gross. Thick and packed so full you could barely sink your teeth into them. These were Brats on steroids, the bigger badder American version. Not good.

So don't expect delectable sausage, but do expect a new grocery shopping experience. There was a fantastic selection of house-made salads, smoked jerkies, fresh cuts of meat, a whole shelf of pickled things, an admirable selection of microbrews and imported beers, and products like potato pancakes and spƤtzle. Just like in the Old Country.

Don't do it! I know you want to though...
"Cuban Reuben" Sausage with Onions, Peppers, Sauerkraut, and Mustard--
You may bite off more than you can chew.

Variety of legit-looking salads

Try a free sample. Or three. 

On that meaty note, let it be known I'll be exploring more vegetarian options in the coming weeks. I'm not really the carnivorous meat freak you might make me out to be. Blame it on the big ole pile of animal bones for sale at Stoysich.
