The Skinny: My brother had a small get together over the weekend and served us some food. From Whole Food Market, he bought Bucheron Montchevre, Mimolette Young, King Island Seal Bay Triple Cream Cheese, and Mt Sterling Smoked Goat Cheddar. He also got us Scallops, Baby Squid, really sweet Honey Melons, and Prosciutto.
The Good: Everything was great, especially the King Island Seal Bay Triple Cream Cheese. It was like really good Brie because it was creamy, gooey, and had just enough saltiness.
The Bad: The Bucheron Montchevre was a really gamey Goat Cheese and it just wasn’t for me.
The Skinny: A cousin of mine gave my brother some mouth melting Salami.
The Good: The thinly sliced Salami was delicious, fatty, salty, and melted away after each chew. It also looked cool and like something you see underneath a microscope during science class in High School.
The Bad: No clue what it’s called.
Would you eat it again? If I can find it!
More Info: My cousin found the Salami at Claro’s Italian Market. It’s about 7 bucks a pound and the stuff is imported. Visit the Claro’s website for store locations.
The Skinny: Ever Since I was a little kid and first moved to Torrance I’ve become increasingly attached to this Amazing Italian Deli. The delicatessen has tons of Italian meats, cheeses, pastas, sauces, etc. And they serve some of the most legit sandwiches in Southern California. Giuliano’s has it it all; whether you’re looking to get lunch or buy some ingredients for an amazing Italian home cooked dinner…
The High: Since 6 years old I’ve been obsessed with their Torpedo Sandwich. It’s an amazingly perfect balance of Italian Salamis and Meats with Cheese, Lettuce, Pepperoncinis, and Fresh Baked bread…YUMMM, The meat is cut perfect and melts in your mouth as it mixes with the cheese and Italian dressing(that you need to add) as you take each bite. It’s comfort food…it’s gourmet comfort food I guess, because this definitely ain’t some plain ‘ol Bologna sandwich. I Feel Strongly that the key to this sandwich is in the Bread….and yes the bread is amazing and can be purchased in store and even delivered if you have a business that needs amazing breads.
The Low: The Torpedo Sandwich is amazing. It’s the only thing I order here and I’ve tried other stuff there which is also really good, but there is nothing quite like a good torpedo. I’d say the worst thing about this place is that it’s in Torrance and I live in LA now….and have yet to find an Italian Deli that can match the Zen like balance of this Sandwich…So I can only satisfy this craving when I visit friends and family out there.
Would I go to again? I’ve been going here since I was 6….nuff said.
