Though Chowhounds have varying opinions about UMAMIcatessen, everybody agrees on one thing: The foie gras doughnuts are spectacular. They’ll disappear soon, after California’s foie gras ban kicks in, so get them while you can.

As for the rest of UMAMIcatessen’s offerings, many Chowhounds think the food is good, not great. sku, on the other hand, loves everything he’s tried off Chef Chris Cosentino’s Pigg menu, especially the pork liver pâté sandwich. “Served on a ciabatta roll, the liver was rich and juicy, shimmering with fat, more like a lobe of porky foie gras than a typical liver pâté,” says sku.
