Sandwiches

In the back corner of the Testaccio market, a butcher-turned-panini-master transforms simple sandwiches into an art form. Located in Rome's former slaughterhouse district, this unassuming counter-serve stand offers sandwiches that are heavy on the offal, and specialize in tripe and slow-stewed beef. But despite the popularity of meat-based sandwiches, one of the most acclaimed at Mordi & Vai is carciofi e pecorino, or artichokes and pecorino cheese.
