Guanciale in SF

Who has it consistently? Avedanos and Mission Local Market only sometimes have it and not currently. Bi-rite can get it special order but it's not a regular item.

I'm going to try Porcellino tomorrow. Anywhere else?

  1. I've seen it a few times at Lucca on Valencia/22nd. Oh and Fatted Calf too.

    1. Boccalone's Ferry Building shop consistently has it. Although, I guess that's the same idea as Porcellino.

          I rather like Fatted Calf's guanciale.

          1. re: wally

            It's one of my favorites. I'm not sure if they always have it at the store.

            1. re: Robert Lauriston

              I find that the San Francisco store has almost all their products available.

            Thanks! I just called Porcellino and Fatted Calf, and both have guanciale right now. Porcellino is closed on Tuesdays, so if I can't get there tonight, I'll head to Fatted Calf.

          3. I'll check out Fatted Calf next time--- Porcellino's was great but they only sold it in shrink wrapped portions that didn't match the weight I needed. I'd get it again though--- good mix of pink and white and not doused in spices.
