LEGENDARY PASTA & SANDWICHES! Food Tour of Florence Italy

  • Published on Sep 19, 2018
  • My food adventure in Florence Italy continues as I spend the entire day just eating nonstop which is my type of fun :-) I really wanted to try out some iconic Florentine dishes and just as much pasta as I can get my hands on.
    For my first stop I went to the central market which is a great place to just hang out and eat, walk around then eat some more and hit the repeat button all day. Then I went looking for a local restaurant that is PACKED all the time and finally went pasta hunting. All in all, a pretty fun day!
    The places I ate at
    Da Nerbone
    Trattoria Mario
    Panini Toscani
    Trattoria Casalinga

    Florence citizen here! Glad you enjoyed lampredotto, it's my favourite😋 I would KILL for a panino al lampredotto.
    When I don't have enough time to have lunch at home I always go and get one to the closest "lampredottaro" that I find (yeah, I think almost everyone in Florence calls the man who makes lampredotto "lampredottaro"😂)
    I remember that once, when I was younger, I was walking with my family in the center of the city and we found a random lampredotto stand at 4 P.M.
    What we did? We literally ate a panino al lampredotto at 4 P.M. . That was great.
    And also almost every saturday, until some months ago, my parents used to go to the market to buy fresh products while I was in school and they used to buy some lampredotto there for my lunch after school! Great times... now I'm on diet so I can't eat it very often😩
    And yeah, the lampredottaro in the Central Market is reaaaally good, but there are many more stands with AWESOME lampredotto. Near Piazza Beccaria, in Via Gioberti, there's the stand called "I'trippaio di Firenze" that makes a great lampredotto. Many of these stands called "I'trippaio di Firenze" are around the city and are so good😉.
    Okay, no jokes now, I'm craving it so bad at 1:28 AM. Gonna get one tomorrow then and screw up diet.
    And ribollita! Probably the best winter meal ever.
    It brings me back to my childhood, I used to eat it A LOT with my grandma. During winter it just warms your heart and makes you feel good, it's a comfortable meal and absolutely great to share with your family!

    My husband and I are visiting Florence right now. He said, “How will we know where to eat?” And I said, “Let’s see if Strictly Dumpling has a video.” Thanks for the great suggestions! We went everywhere except Trattoria da Mario, which was closed for vacation.

    It would be great if you could find out how they made that celery side dish. I never saw anything like it and couldn't find anything similar online

    Italians Toscana people eat drink abundance, pure, proper food and drink, not fast food stuff, or process, less vehicles allowed in cities, so walking about, in cities and countryside, fresh air, and happiness easy going.......that's the answer to being fit and healthy...😍

    One of my best memories in Florence is that stripe sandwich. I didn't have it in the market but from a small food stand run by a family near the leather good market. It was so delicious and an Italian dad was there with his teenage daughter, they even shared their red wine with me-So Italian :)

    Because they deep the bread in the broth that is why he likes it. My experience with Italian bread has been dry and hard. The pasta and pizza were awesome.

    Italian cuisine is in my opinion the best in the world. Just as good if not better than French cuisine, but so much more relaxed and easygoing.

    Mike, I've been watching your videos for years and I just have to comment after watching your 2kg steak vid, and now this one. I think your table manners are getting worse! I was SO HAPPY when you stopped chewing with your mouth open but it appears that you have compensated by trying to shove as much food as possible in your mouth with ONE forkful! While I understand the shoving the food in until you can't close your mouth may be an Asian thing, but good grief, man, have some dignity! It's beginning to look like you've never used a knife and fork before!
