This place started out as the place for Italian immigrants to find their hard-to-find-in-American-stores Italian ingredients. This one older lady on the tour asked the owner (?) to smile for a picture, but he said that he preferred not to be in the picture due to the sunburn on his face, but she took a picture of him looking down anyway. Aiyaiyai. People can be really insensitive sometimes. She said something about not having the flash on though, so hopefully it didn't come out. haha Anyway, so this was our first food sampling place.
(1) Meat: Salami rosmarino salumi salami
(2) Cheese: New moon jack
* They were both good and full of flavor...and that the meat had cracked pepper in it. There were enough pieces for all of us to have at least two samples of the cheese and the meat. Yum.
More free samples that I didn't try due to our time restriction:
