There are other types of Salami here; most stores have chicken salami and turkey salami as well.

Supermercado Sosua, who remember?
Why did they went out of business, I used to eat over there everytime I went to Sosua back in the 90s.
They used to have a Dominican style fast food eater similar than the one at Supermercado INDUVECA.

Don Pedro is very good.
Don Pedro in the gold wrapper is the only one I can eat. It's a beef salami. All the others seem just to be suitable for dog food. Some of the imported genoa salamis are ok. I used to buy Oscar Meyer Cotto beef salami in the US and thought it was far better than anything here.

Don Pedro may be the best of a bad lot, but I couldn't eat it.
Yes the imports - real salami type are good but overy pricey.
Most of the salamis sold here are seriously not even suitable for dog food, that is if you value your dog's health.
It is sad to see the Dominicans frying these products and thinking it is a nice meal. The salamis here should carry a warning like cigarettes
"May be Prejudicial to your Health" .....and.... "If you Eat a Lot of this Product Obesity is Guaranteed"

And then it’s fried in hot oil. A ticking time bomb. I went to playero last week and my only complaint is they still don’t have my favorite sauerkraut. (Avocado & sauerkraut is good)

The salamis here remind me more of some kind of crappy bologna(or baloney as we called it). I remember eating a lot of bologna sandwiches when I was a kid, and it was far better tasting than the salami here.

And what they try to pass off as ham, is more like spam-in-a-can.

Lovely family. Hard workers. They lost their lease in the building. Then they opened the supermercado across from Ocean Village and it never took off. Bad location. I understand the Russians bought it and they don't care if there is not business. The original owner of Supermercado Sosua now works out of her house at Christmas and makes baskets for individuals and local businesses. I have ordered from her every year before and after they lost their original location.

Sosua needs a Supermarket where you can go get your supplies and from time to times have lunch, fresh Dominican food at a affordable prize.
In Santiago most Supermarket have that.

When I first arrived in the DR and my wife served me what is called salami here, I was quite surprised. A cross between a bad hot dog and horrible bologna is the closest I can come to describing DR salami to someone from back home. I introduced her to actual Italian Salami and now she will not eat what Dominicans call salami ever again.

As for the lack of stock in any supermarket, I learned over the years that if I saw something once, I might never see it again. That has only gotten worse over time.

I learned a long time ago if you see something you like for the first time on supermarket shelves, buy it all.
