Winter Specials: Pick Up Handmade Chinese Sausages From This Chinatown Store

    Shortcut

    They are an epicurean delight and a must-have item from Kolkata.

    Air Kissed To Perfection

    The crowds are descending on Pou Chong to pick up their much-coveted sausages. These sausages—-known as lap cheong — are worth the long trek. They are air-cured, the ground pork and seasonings stuffed into the casings and then hung to dry naturally so it develops a rounded, savoury taste.

    Where To Get Them

    You can pick them up from the Pou Chong store near the Tiretti Bazar Telephone Exchange. Call 033 -2215-7398/ 2237-0870 and 9831090025 for more information. They are for INR 480 a kilo.
