Stuck for lunch? Starving artist? Hungry student ( and not just for knowledge) ? Well on “cheap street” mentioned in my last post, lies a few of the meanest sandwich production places in Florence,Italy.
People line up to order then sit on the sidewalk stuffing them down, and that is a gastronomical challenge. They are good, fresh due to the volume made, but one in a day and your done till tomorrow… roughly 5 euros each, along with a 2 euro cup of vino.
Follow me this summer on my return to Firenze, Italia to continue my book
There’s a street in Florence,Italy that I call cheap street. The reason being there’s a section of it where you can devour “flintstone” like sandwiches with a cheap glass of wine for just a few euros. In the afternoons you see scores of students and younger people lined up in several stands to order and then sit on the curb (or what passes for one) to chomp them down. They are good, no kidding, but if you make this a daily habit you won’t see 40.
The lines were long this day but in the middle of the feasting madness we saw a sit down place with the same name and no lines..aha! I ordered, but it was too late when I noticed the carnivorous canine feeding taking place around me and for good reason..WE GOT MEAT!
