What is Lampredotto? Lampredotto is an Italian dish and very famous for Florence’s street food. You see them just about everywhere in a few square miles in Florence. Again this is only famous in Florence. When I traveled to Italy, local people recommended that this is a must try dish if you are in Florence. Since I am a foodie I thought maybe I would give a try. Although quite frankly, I am not that a big fan of eating organs. As much as so many stalls selling this and it seems to appear on every restaurant’s menu (Although I don’t think it can beat the gelato where I see them just every 10 feet in Florence) so I had to try. This also reminded me of the Chinese pork stomach stew since I think there were some similarities between the two. I actually had to admit, it was very tender and did not taste bad at all, lots of spices and left no smell if cooked well. I would not say this is my best dish of all but I cannot be the best judge of this dish since I don’t eat organs. Basically I had to look it up. What is this dish made of really. Lampredotto is basically made from the final part of the cattle stomach and slowly cooked until it’s super tender. It needs plenty of seasoning and served with the toasted warm bread to dip in the sauce. You may also see them being served as a sandwich. If you ever visited Florence and to feel that you actually are there you might want to give a try.
