Musings of A Detroit Based Food Fanatic

Shopping for Christmas/Nino Salvaggio and Giglio’s

leave a comment »


     With Christmas on the doorstep it was time to do some serious planning and shopping for the Xmas meal. With gift card in hand my wife and I drove off towards Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace. The idea was to buy food to munch on during our Christmas feast. There is no finer condiment than truffle oil and Nino’s had it (black and white) along with a wide variety of gourmet staples (dressings, marinades etc.). The cheese selection had my favorite (Maytag Blue) as well as selections from around the world. Although we didn’t avail ourselves of it there was a great meat and seafood counter, as well as an extensive deli, bakery and produce selection. We bought Truffle oil, shrimp, pizza, vegetables, cheese and crackers.

     I would be remiss if I did not mention Giglio’s. Located right across the street from Nino Salvaggios Giglio’s is the best Italian market in the metro Detroit area. After Nino’s we ran across for a sub sandwich there (best in Michigan) but Giglio’s also has a full meat counter, deli and prepared foods. More on Giglio’s later.
