Sopressata at Stinky Brooklyn

I bought some Sopressata at Stinky Brooklyn the other day that was awesome- I asked where it came from they said TJ's in Queens.

Does anyone know of this evasive salumeria? Or is it a wholesaler? Or what- All I know was it was as good as any- It was the sweet kind, fyi, not spicy. But delicious.

  1. You can get great sweet sopressata at Caputo's on Court between Third and Fourth Place

      I'll second the sweet sopressata at Caputo's. And while all the sliced meats are delicious, I never fail to pick the hot coppa (capicola).

        1. Esposito's Pork Store on Court has an excellent soppressata which I believe they still cure in house. They got a mention in a NY Times article from a couple years ago on dry cured sausages in NYC.

            Yeah they're all great, but does anyone know about TJ's?

              I can't help you with info about TJ's, but I could have sworn the last time I got the soppressata at Stinky that it was from Salumeria Biellese. If it's not from there anymore, I'd still recommend SB's version - it's amazing.
