[Dine-Out] Seattle: Salumi Artisan Cured Meats

When I knew that we were going to Seattle, I definitely wanted to take the bf to Salumi. He loves sandwiches and this was apparently the place to get some gooooood sandwiches. All the meats here are cured on site and we couldn’t wait to try them!

Specials of the day:

Something to study while waiting in line…

The line was seriously 20 people long. Good thing it wasn’t raining that day. I got so FREAKING excited when I saw that t was gnocchi day! I thought it was meant to be, of all the days I chose to come, I picked gnocchi day. But alas, after making it about halfway through the line, a employee came out and crossed it off the chalkboard. I guess I will just have to come back to Seattle some other day!

Salumi is a relatively small place. After standing in the super long line, you will have to cross your fingers that there’s somewhere to sit inside the restaurant. The bf and I were lucky and grab two seats in a large dining table.

I got Salumi’s finocchiona sandwich. This. Was. Delicious.


I thought that I didn’t like pesto, but man, Salumi’s creamy pesto is definitely a game changer. I don’t even know why I thought I didn’t like pesto. It has pretty much everything I love in it, garlic, basil, pine nuts, olive oil, parmigiano reggiano…delicious!

The salumi was expectedly delicious. The perfect balance of meat and fat. I think if I were to ever come back, I’d definitely order a charcuterie board to sample all its offerings.


The bf got the special of the day, lamb sausage:

My sandwich was better than his sandwich. Waaay better.

Definitely worth waiting in line for.

Salumi on Urbanspoon

  1. Came here via Urbanspoon, after a note about this place appear in my feed.

    When I went there, I ordered two items: one cold (muffaletta) and one hot sandwich (porchetta). The cold sandwich was a bust of sorts, as it was too salty but the real winner was the porchetta. After checking with my fellow blogger Sherman (and a revisit), he agreed it is a bit of hit-and-miss. Good items are *good*, other items…

    As for myself, I guess you were lining up on a sunny day; however, I lined up on a rainy day. Because of that one factor, I am not necessarily willing to repeat said experience!
