Italian Sandwich Finocchiona, mortadella, soplessata, provolone, olive salad, pickled peppers, butterleaf lettuce, onion, tomato, pesto aioli on focaccia.
At the A La Carte pod, there is a cart with a cute one eyed, horned monster painted on the side, serving up five different tasty sandwiches. We decided on their Italian Sandwich. As we all grabbed a quarter of sandwich, you could see the multiple layers of the different meats and cheese and the veggies looked fresh.
The meats were a good combination and full of flavour. The bread was soft and thin, allowing for the meat and cheese to take centre stage and the pesto aioli and olive salad gave the sandwich enough moisture. As a person who is not too fond of olives I found the olive salad subtle, so if you are expecting a “muffaletta” style sandwich you will be disappointed. The only downside of the sandwich was that most of the meat was humped up in the middle of the sandwich leaving only bread and veggies on the edge. This made the presentation of the cut sandwich nice but made me feel like I was missing out at the end.
