Central Grocery Co. is an Italian grocery store that originated the sandwich in 1906. The muffuletta is a huge Italian sandwich made with sliced meats (like mortadella, salami, and capicola), cheeses (like provolone and mortadella), and a marinated olive spread.
The sign says it all!
We chose the Vegetarian Muffaletta ($12.95) to share. It was filled with a thick and delicious olive spread (a mix of olives, carrots, celery, and cauliflower marinated overnight) and lots of sliced provolone and mortadella cheeses. It was so good, very flavorful, and quite substantial.
