- This is Florentine street food. Buy it from one of the trucks/trailers turned food stands that you find at busy junctions. For the best experience, look for a stand where the patrons are Florentines.
- Ask for the “completo” with both salsa verde and chili sauce.
- Make sure you have something to drink, you’ll need it. Inexpensive red table wine in a plastic cup is ideal. That and a liter of water.
- Grab extra napkins.
- Keep your panino in its wrapper, holding it loosely.
- Bend over to take your first bite, holding the panino away from you. Be careful not to press too hard.
- Relish and enjoy. Each bite gets better as you go.
- Keep the wrapper tight around the panino to catch all the juices.
- Gently ease the meat back into the bun as needed. (Do this without removing the plastic).
- Savor the last bite that has sopped up all the sauce and juice.
- Wipe hands. This is the ideal time for your travel-sized hand sanitizer. Use liberally. Wipe hands again.
- Lick lips.
