Spalla's/ Culinary delights in Natick

cb01 | May 24, 2012 06:49 AM

Culinary delights which is a really good russian store and deli has expanded to include Spalla's. Spalla's serves Chicago style Italian Beef and and hot dogs along with Maxwell St. style Polish sausages. Now being a native Chicagoan, I was skeptical about the quality and authenticity but desperate for a local source.Yesterday was the first day they were open and so I went for dinner and had a Italian Beef and a Chicago dog. Both were excellent by Boston standards and very passable by Chicago standards. The bread used for the Italian beef is imported from Turano bakery in Chicago. They couldn't get a reliable source for Gonnella which I would prefer but they also had a good giardineira. The hot dog had the required poppy seed bun, sport peppers, nuclear green relish and celery salt. All in all, I can't wait to go back. If only I could find some Chicago style pizza.
