Tasty Salted Pig Parts!

November 23, 2009

Ever since Boccalone was featured on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” on the Food Network, Boyfriend has been dying to try it.  Any mention of the city resulted in Boyfriend asking if we could go to the Ferry Building to get a taste of the salumi cones.

Who can resist a place that serves “tasty salted pig parts”?!?

The place was a lot smaller than I expected.  It looked a lot bigger on TV.  Despite the small size of the shop, they had tons of salted pig parts for sale.

Besides your regular salami, prosciutto, etc. you can also get pre-packaged lard.

 All the cones were lined up waiting patiently to be purchased and consumed.

We went with a mixed salumi cone for $3.25.  I believe it had prosciutto, mortadella and salami in it but I could be wrong.

The three meats were all flavored wonderfully and it was a great afternoon snack.  I failed to mention that we had eaten lunch prior to the salumi cone so we had to do a couple laps around the Ferry Building to build up our appetite for it!

The next time we go, I’d love to try the nduja – spreadable Calabrian salami.  How luxurious does that sound?!?  I’d also like to meet Chris Constantino but that is probably less likely.
