The fig salami by Sykofagos is a pleasant surprise as it is salami made of dried fig in various flavors, which looks like a meat sausage without actually being one. In appearance, the resemblance is total, as it looks exactly like a salami stick, capable of confusing you. In flavor, with your eyes closed, the initial sensation is that of a sausage, until the sweet aftertaste of the fig arrives. Then, you realize that the product is so pleasantly unique but also impressively tasty, as it manages to handle a traditional fruit with perspective, politeness, essence and innovation.
It is available in three flavors, the original with spices and paprika, salami with pistachios and salami with orange. The figs come from Kymi, Euboea which is known for its special flavor and fruit harvesting technique. The fig salami is therefore a 100% vegan substitute of salami, and cut in thin slices it can accompany wonderfully wine and cheese, finding its place on a side dish.
