I am a salami fan. I don't like vaccum packed salami because of they don't have flavor and texture of homemade salamis you find in some stores
My recommedation is, "Joe's Pork Store" in Astoria. It's located on Ditmars Blvd. bet 37th and 38th Street. Small pork specialist who make their own salamis. They only make two kinds of salamis (sweet and hot) in various shapes and sizes. Their sweet salamis are very mild and soft taste that's so addictive. They also make fresh sausages. My favorite is skinny sausage with cheese. When grilled or pan roasted, grilled cheese flavor adds tastiness to delicious fresh italian sausage. Joe's is one of the gem which is not discovered yet.
Any other recommendation in your area? Doesn't have to be Italian salami.
