LOS ANGELES, California, USA — Muffoletta lovers in Los Angeles have
a source for authentic muffoletta sandwiches. The Gumbo Pot
specializes in New Orleans cuisine and is located in the Farmers Market
at 3rd and Fairfax.
The Gumbo Pot spells is sandwich muffelata and doesn't include
the mortadella or emmentaler, but the sandwich is a worthy substitute
when in Los Angeles.
The muffoletta sandwich at the Gumbo Pot is made on a round, 7”
diameter, muffoletta loaf and costs $9.50 for a whole sandwich – which
is large enough for a truck driver or for two ordinary accountants.
However, a better choice is the special muffoletta, with double
the amount of meat, cheese and olive salad. The special muffoletta
tastes almost as good as the Central Grocery’s original (adding the
mortadella and emmentaler would help). Ask for the “special
muffoletta – with double everything”.]
