Smoked Salmon at Pumpernick's - Montgomeryville

Hi everyone,
Has anyone ever gotten Smoked Salmon from the deli at Pumpernick's in Montgomeryville? My family has a tradition of Bagels w/ cream cheese and lox/smoked salmon at the holidays, and I'm looking for somewhere good to buy real smoked salmon instead of the packaged kind at the grocery store. Any reports about this place, or a place near by I could try?

  1. We get their Nova all the time. It is excellent!

    1. See this thread.

      I recommend Aaron at Genuardi's in St. Davids. Better slicing and more consistent quality than Pumpernick's (though Pumpernick's is fine too).

      1. In the Bag deli in Maple Glen has very good Lox. I've also ordered their fish trays (whitefish, kippered salmon, sable, lox, etc with garnishes and bagels) many times and can recommend those as well.

        1. Pumpernicks is very good. We got a very nice platter from them for Yom Kippur. The only place I know to get better fish is in New York.

          1. I just wanted to follow up and report that I purchased the Nova Lox from Pumpernick's and it was amazing! Will definitely be going back from now on for my lox needs. Thanks!
