Italian sausage - help!

I’m moving to the Philippines next month. On my last trip to Manila a few months ago, I searched in vain for what we call “Italian sausage” in America.  It’s a fennel spiced sausage used for pasta, pizza and sub sandwiches.  It’s sold in basically every grocery store in America and tastes pretty much the same no matter where you buy it.

I tried SM, S&R, Rustan’s, The Landmark in Makati, even Santi’s Deli in BGC. I bought a couple different sausages labeled “Italian sausage” but tasted nothing like it.  Has anyone found anything anywhere in the Philippines that has the right taste?  I must have an occasional plate of decent sausage pasta with marinara.  If I have to spend the rest of my life eating that sweet sugar crap that Filipinos call spaghetti I might die. ;)

I was in Angeles City for the past few days. While walking along Fields Avenue in Balibago area where all the Bars are I stopped in Bretto's Deli. They sell Hot Italian Sausages with Fennel Seeds in Hog casings. I posted some pics. One cooler had various types, all Hog casings, the other had a variety in collagen casings.

Ok so I finally cooked em up.  They’re great.  Not hot like I normally like, more like the mild Johnsonvilles.  Best I’ve had in a long time.
