$10 Lunch: Fernanda's International Market

The deal: This Mediterranean market in Fort Lauderdale has a full-service deli that makes excellent sandwiches with fresh cold cuts.

What you get: Each sandwich costs around $8 and is

huge, with fresh-baked bread and plenty of gourmet toppings. The meat

is all Boar's Head too. 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.

We tried: The New Orleans-style muffuletta comes on sesame-seed

bread like the original version from Central Grocery. It had an

inch 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.

A Sicilian sub comes with basil and tomato with fresh mozzarella

cheese. Grab a frosty Dr. Brown's

soda from the nearby self-service drink cooler to go with your sub.  

Bonus points: If you're not in the mood for sandwiches,

Fernanda's prepared-food case is on the east side of the market and has

everything from salads to marinated mushrooms and chicken Milanese.
