Lunch at Fernanda's International Food Market
The muffuletta sandwich at Fernanda's.
My muffuletta came on a sesame seed-coated roll, similar to the one's at Central Grocery in New Orleans (unfortunately, Fernanda's was out of the sesame ciabatta at the time, which would've been an exact match). It had an inch-worth of salami and capacolla and a few slices of dry provolone cheese. I could've done without the lettuce and tomato, but the marinated olive salad that Fernanda's makes in house was excellent. I only wish there was more of it on the bread.
When you get your sandwich at Fernanda's you take it to one of the many
mosaic-tiled tables near the market's wine isle. Just grab a frosty Dr. Brown's
soda, and you're good to go. If you're not in the mood for sandwiches, Fernanda's prepared food case is in the east side of the market and has everything from salads to marinated mushrooms and chicken Milanese. Most of the options there are inexpensive too.
