Knight Salami Company (San Diego)

They're not a restaurant but they are a local source for hand made artisan cured meats such as salamis which I've seen sold at several of the local farmers' markets here in San Diego. I do like the taste of their salamis and you can tell that they're a quality product but, as happy as I am to see a local maker of cured meats, their prices are just outrageous. They sell their various salamis for $12-$15 (depending on type) per OUNCE! Ouch! That's $192 for a 1lb salami.

Sure, I want to support local artisan businesses but even Katz Deli in New York City, which is world famous for their hand crafted salamis, sells salamis for 1/4 that price. I wish Knight Salami all the best as I do with all of our local fine food makers but... come on. $192 for a frigging salami is a joke, right?
