Smoked Swabian bacon in NYC?

sf2006 | Sep 17, 2010 12:59 PM

I just got back from Tokaj, Hungary where I had the most amazing bacon and I am hoping I can get it in the States.

Hungarian name...
füstölt sváb szalonna = Smoked Swabian bacon

It was mostly lard with thin strips of meat...but the fat was SO SO tasty, smokey and salty. Not fried.
I generally don't like the lardo that comes on charcuterie platters (usually tasteless) but this was amazing.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
