Enzo's Pork Store in Massapequa

coll | Feb 11, 200809:41 AM

I get into this area every few months, and always remembered several years ago driving down 106/107 and seeing a sign out of the corner of my eye (Milk Fed Veal Cutlets $3.99/lb) Had to turn around, which was a good thing, because they were the best I ever had (and also probably the cheapest!)
So today I actually went looking for him, and there he was stuck in the corner of a run down, half empty looking shopping center, and I'm glad I did. Figured he'd be gone, but he said he's been there 34 years and is trying to hang in there. Small and not much selection, but what there is, is perfect. Like a tiny Arthur Ave. All kinds of fresh mozz and hanging cheeses, home made ravioli, that type of thing.
I got 6 veal cutlets (milk fed, don't care about PETA really), 8 fresh Italian sausages and 2 bracioles for Easter (he made them to order!), a box of the really fancy dry tagliatelle pasta made with eggs in the windowed box, and a bunch of Patene tomato products, and the whole thing came out to $40. He said he can't stand how all Italian pork stores now have to have Gourmet or Italiana in their name, just to charge 3 X the price.
If you live over that way, check him out, so he'll be there next time I visit!!
