Central Grocery Co (New Orleans, LA)

923 Decatur St, New Orleans, LA 70116, T: 504-523-1620.

To be fair, we didn't do much research before we came to New Orleans, so we had to be pointed to the Central Grocery Co by our friends. We were told they had a delicious sandwich, which we had to go and eat. When we arrived to the "Home of the Original Muffuletta," we found ourselves surrounded by other tourists amazed by this incredible Italian delicatessen store.

Obviously, we went for The Original Muffuletta. I was somewhat take aback by the price ($15.91) and the fact that it came pre-made. However, when we unwrapped that bad boy, the size and smells already changed our minds.

The Original Muffuletta comes on a huge round bun, a cross between a focaccia and a semolina, layered with salami, ham, provolone, Swiss, olive oil, and a unique Giardiniera. Each individual part was delicious, Old Continent quality, but the whole was even better than the sum of the parts. Incredible!

VERDICT: 100/100
This is the ultimate cold sandwich! Nuff said! DO.NOT.MISS.THIS!!!
