Muffuletta - The New Orleans Way!
The muffuletta sandwich is uniquely New Orleans from start to finish and nobody does it better than the originators, Central Grocery. Each sandwich is made on a 9″ round Sicilian sesame loaf (aka the muffuletta loaf) that stays crusty despite all it’s messy fillings. It’s stuffed with ham, salami, mortadella, swiss, Provolone and a signature briny marinated olive salad filled with Kalamata and green olives and other tasty pickled veggies.
The muffuletta originated in New Orleans and was created by Italian immigrants in the 1890s and credited to grocer Signor Lupo Salvatore with its roots in Sicily. Salvatore would sell these sandwiches to produce vendors in the marketplace near the famed French Quarter
