We’ve heard some rumblings about Sergimmo Salumeria around the neighborhood. But despite all the foodie gossip, I had yet to try it. Knowing that I was incredibly hungry and in the mood for a super fresh sandwich, I knew today was the day. When I clicked open the menu for the Italian spot, I was immediately overwhelmed. There are an insane amount of options at Sergimmo’s. From the daily pasta specials to the various homemade, marinated, and olive bars, to their amazing salads, and delicious panini, I was amazed. It took me a good half hour to read through the menu and decide what to order.
In the end, here’s what I got: Vegetable Arancini, Il VIP Panini, and a Single Cannoli. If I were a hungrier person, I would have and could have ordered more. For now, this will do.
I was overly hungry when the food arrived, and that was unfortunately because the food came over a half hour later than my estimated delivery window. After this initial disappointment, my expectations were fairly low for the meal. Luckily, the food made up for it. And my meal was pretty perfect.
I first dug into the Vegetable Arancini. The rice ball was huge! It was salty and creamy. The rice was cooked to perfection and the bits of shredded veggie sprinkled throughout the ball were great. The rice was sprinkled with zucchini, broccoli, carrots, peas, and asparagus. I must admit that the tomato sauce that came with the ball was not so super. It was somewhat watery and cold. It didn’t really matter though, because I preferred to eat it without sauce. It was good enough!
The Il VIP Panini was a thing of beauty. This sandwich on ciabatta was made with prosciutto di parma, fresh mozzarella, arugula, extra virgin olive oil, and fig spread. Yes, I said fig spread. Each ingredient on this panini was so fresh and so delicious. The prosciutto was salty, the mozz was creamy and the fig spread was sweet. It was such a wonderful combination that I could not get over. Next time, I may even ask for some extra fig spread. It was that good.
Last, but most certainly not least, I had a single cannoli. At this point in the meal I was fairly stuffed. But for the sake of this blog, and for the sake of the Seamless community, I ate the cannoli. The cookie shell was hard, but it crumbled into nice bits and cradled the thick cream nicely. It was a perfectly sweet ending to a great meal.
