Where to find Haggis in southern California?

Does anyone know any restaurants in southern California that serve haggis? I can't seem to find any and want to try it. I have never had it before, and would like to have an authentic version before attempting to make it myself.

@Lisa, it seems to be the case that one *cannot* import haggis--but not for the reason I stated, regarding sheep lungs, but rather, the general ban on importing "ruminant products from the UK," on account of mad cow disease. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8480795.stm

You need the cereal in it to make it Haggis... (I'm from Tyne & Wear, so although English, we're pretty closely linked to the Scots).

Should I be worried about eating the lung? Why is it baned?

Yes I read this too. You can buy it online and have it shipped here.

I would like to make my own without oatmeal, but I have to try it first to know how it is supposed to taste.

Check the Robert Burns Society - if there is one near you. They do a homemade haggis at times. Also if you're near La Mesa, and if it's still there, go to All Things Bright and British - they have it canned. To make it umm "tasty" try frying little patties in bacon fat. Good luck!

Surely the high oatmeal content of haggis rules it out of paleo?

Such a pity ??? I live on the Scots border and love it.

I've read that traditional haggis cannot be marketed in the United States (neither domestically produced, nor imported) because the USDA bans the use of sheep lungs for human consumption, and this ingredient comprises a substantial portion of the product. But I suppose nothing's stopping people who can slaughter their owh sheep from making it however they like and consuming it. They just can't (legally) sell it.
