A.G. Ferrari's, town center mall, corte madera
Val D'Aosta: honey smoked ham, fontina, sauerkraut, and dijon mustard on puglieseAs I mentioned in my last post, I've been spending a lot of time in malls lately due to my new line of work. That sucks about as hard as you might imagine it would. Food options have been slim, and I honestly had never considered stepping foot inside of an A.G. Ferrari's before. It's not that I have anything in particular against them, just that it seemed like they were sort of a chain version of an expensive import grocery store, and a) I got no $$$ for expensive imports and b) if I did I wouldn't be going to a chain store to get stocked up. Anyway after a couple months of staring blankly across the way at A.G. Ferrari's storefront and seeing folks meander out with sandwiches in hand, I decided to give it a shot. It turns out that my impression of A.G. Ferrari's was correct, but that I had not anticipated the possibility that they would make decent sandwiches. This sandwich wasn't bad! Based on the ingredients list, I hadn't really anticipated that it would be a panini- I would have guessed that sauerkraut would make for a very soggy sandwich- but somehow that wasn't the case. The cheese was nice and melty, the ham tasted sweet and delicate, and although I only had minutes to scarf this down before work started, I was definitely glad that I got lunch from A.G. Ferrari's instead of World Wrapps or Baja Fresh.
