Oxtail Sandwich

Where to Find It:
309 3rd Ave South
Seattle, WA 98104
Richmond, VA 23220

Salumi was opened by Armandino Batali just a block away from the site where his grandfather's Italian food import store was in 1903. Armandino studied meat curing and cooking. Inspired by the traditional Italian Salumeria, his store produces gourmet cured meats and other traditional Italian foods. He and his wife Marilyn have grown the business since it first opened and in 2002, their daughter Gina and her husband joined them in the business. Today, they sell their meats to both wholesale and retail customers.

BITE Score Rating:

B - Outstanding, it's like a sponge that soaks up the juices and gravy that come from the oxtail.
I - The oxtail has so many levels of flavor plus the onions and peppers do something texture-wise.
T - Clearly the 20 hours spent to make the oxtail as soft and delicious as it is really paid off.
E- Something that you can't get everyday. It's definitely messy to eat.
