Deep Fried Melted Mozzarella Sandwich from Tramezzini NYC
You may be asking yourself 'Why is that cheese pink?' But rest assured, there's no artificial colouring used here! The guys at Tramezzini had the novel idea of using beets to colour their cheese pink. Imported fresh from Italy, the mozzarella comes in 4 flavours: beet, pesto, tomato and regular.
The Venetian bread, also directly imported from Italy, is fried till golden brown and crispy, and the mozzarella cheese was a real treat to eat. Because it's fresh and not mass-produced, it's much softer and creamier.
We also got to try one of the sandwiches with some beet mousse.
Thanks to Tramezzini NYC & Palate Connect for having me!
