mi favorito

This is an attempt at recreating the "favorito" sandwich from Artú in the North End.

favorito sandwich
The bread (a French baguette from La Brea Bakery) had too hard of a crust for a sandwich like this. We ended up with the roofs of our mouths cut up. Artú doesn't use the balsamic vinegar in their sandwich, but they do use basil, which I didn't have. It's not the same as eating it in Boston on a sunny, blustery fall day, but it'll have to do until our next trip back.
[bread, proscuitto, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic]

that's hilarious! I didn't really think about that. I usually buy the bigger ones and slice it, but couldn't find them at the market for some reason.
