Moccia is a salumeria and charcuterie place in Vancouver. Offering many different types of fresh and dry cured products as well as sandwiches on freshly baked East Village Bakery baguettes.
Hmmm ... not sure if this qualifies as a restaurant. I mean, it's really a meat market (honestly, that's what it says). Most of the food needs to be cooked first (at home).
They guys in there really take pride in their food. Their own salami is very tasty but mild. They'll happily let you sample the version you want.
We also picked up a cotechino, which they have a semi pre-cooked version for you. Awesome. I dunno if cotechino is supposed to taste like this, but if it gets any better, I might die.
Oh, did I mention the bacon? This is tied for the most amazing bacon I have ever eaten. Anywhere. (Surprisingly, the other is Anton's bacon at the Fraser Park Restaurant). It's not too salty, very fragrant (honestly, hard to describe if you've never had a "fragrant" bacon before) and very surprisingly, not that fatty. The leftover grease amount was so much smaller than any other bacon we've tried, we could just go ahead and cook with it (hmmm.....bacon...)
Reasonable prices, great food and guys who take pride in their craft. I'll be back for sure.
