On a day trip to Florence, The Skinny Chef was eager to go to the Mercato Centrale and while there we enjoyed a simple lunch at Nerbone. Known for their paninis, we ordered a Panino Con Lampredotto (lining of the cow stomach) and Panino Con Bollito (boiled beef). The Panino Con Lampredotto had a slight bite to it and the lampredotto inside was cooked to perfection. It was soft, but not chewy and was served with salsa piccante (hot sauce) and salsa verde (a mix of green herbs) upon our request, which added a nice kick and tang.
The Panino Con Bollito was stuffed with soft beef boiled in its own juices to give it incredible texture and flavor. When biting into each sandwich our taste buds were overwhelmed by the salty, spicy, and savory flavors making it an umami experience! I wish we could have found room to continue eating as their other dishes, including salads, pastas, and meats looked fresh, well sauced, and for lack of a better word, tasty.
