Spanish Tuna (Canned) Anywhere?

Can anyone recommend where I might find Spanish tuna--or really anything that swims in the Mediterranean--but the real stuff, canned with real olive oil...I'll settle for Portugese or Italian in a pinch but prefer Spanish.

I can't do this Starkist crap anymore.

  1. Buon Italia and Citarella both carry premium canned tuna in olive oil, and Buon Italia also has Ventresca, which is tuna belly (a.k.a. toro if you're a sushi eater).

    Buon Italia
    75 Ninth Avenue
    New York, NY 10011

    2135 Broadway

      1. Whole Paycheck usually carries a wide variety....or go online to Zingermans...out of Ann Arbor.

                Yeah, I'd have to assume that's a best bet. If you find yourself in Park Slope, D'Vine Taste on 7th & Garfield carries several Spanish tunas, both in glass jars and cans.


          1. Dean & Delucca at Soho.
            Amish Market at 44th, between 2nd and 4d.
