Central Grocery is known for making a great muffaleta sandwich. The Muffaletta Italian bread is round and very light and filling with salami, provolone, capicola and pickled cauliflower and olives.I ordered the half muffaleta for $7.50 and it what cut in half and wrapped up to go from an Asian store clerk. There were four or five patrons eating their muffaletas in the chairs in the back of the store.
The sandwich had a nice tang from the cauliflower and olives and tasted really good with the sliced meats and mounds of sliced cheese. The muffaleta bread soaked up just enough of the olive oil and olive juices.
