Salume Beddu

3467 Hampton Ave. St. Louis, MO 63139 | St. Louis - The Hill | 314-353-3100

Location Description:

Since 2008 Salume Beddu has produced cured meats on par with the nation's top artisans of the craft. Now, you can order lunch at its Hampton Avenue shop, and the menu, though small, is extraordinary. Sandwiches spotlight the store's products - speck paired with fontina and preserved lemons, say, or the "Beast in a Box," featuring the terrific fiama sausage. Daily specials can be sublime, like the pork ribs rubbed with ras-al-hanout, a Moroccan spice blend, steamed for three to four hours and then charred to finish. All in all, an absolute can't-miss.
