Lardo in LA?
Where can I get lardo retail? Anywhere on the West Side?
Several places in town occasionally get guanciale from the famous lardo town of Colonnata, cured exactly like lardo, and performing identically when sliced thinly and served on hot bread. The EU is touchy about lardo to begin with, and this is the exportable form. I've seen it at Guidi Marcello and at Mario's.
