Meat to Go – Boccalone's Famous Salumi Cone

Isn't it darling? A nosegay of meat!

My fondness for pork is pretty common knowledge amongst anyone who knows me.

That said, I really have to admire Chris Cosentino and Mark Pastore’s mission to make porcine delights (“tasty, salted pig parts” to be exact) more accessible to the people.

Which is why, if you happen to be in the vicinity of the Ferry Building, a trip to Boccalone will reward you with one of the best snacks since my beloved chicharrones – the famous salumi cone!

If you ever wished you could just walk around with a charcuterie plate like it was perfectly normal, your day has come.

From silky mortadella to pancetta piana, the workers will set you up with a paper cone filled with salty, unctuous bliss for $3.50.

Meat to go – What an age we live in! God keep you guys.

Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder

Stephen's early years were spent in a boxcar overlooking downtown Los Angeles. From there he moved around the state with his family before settling under the warm blanket of smog that covers suburban Southern California. Moving around led to his inabilty to stay in one place for very long, but San Francisco has been reeling him back in with its siren song since 1999. By trade he pours booze, but likes to think he can write and does so occasionally for people like the SF Bay Guardian. He also likes to enoy time spent in old eateries, bars and businesses that, by most standards, would have been condemned a long time ago.
