Relatively Wordless Wednesday: Sandwich at an Italian Cafe Anyone? – updated

Print Friendly

Relatively Wordless Part:

  • Formerly a health store called Muscle Madness before the Preston Street “Rehabilitation”
  • Presently, an Italian cafe, called Sanguiccio, owned and operated by friendly Genio Ienzi.
  • Open a year…
  • Just a hot plate, a toaster oven, and lots of love!
  • Sandwich meats (many sourced from nearby Luciano’s, 106 Preston Street) are sliced to order, so freshest (including mortadella!)
  • Cheese is sliced to order, so freshest.
  • In-house chili condiment, made with air dried chilis
  • Preserved artichoke hearts, lightly pickled peppers, and green olives antipasti from local producer.
  • Recommended specials during my visit: tuna, smoked meat, beef spezzatino, turkey cooked in a cream sauce with butter and brandy.
  • Web-presence (including Twitter-based Daily Specials and Facebook) by sister of owner.

Wordless Part:

Update: Yes, the bread used by Genio for Sanguiccio’s sandwiches is sourced from the Art-Is-In bakery. On that note, owner/baker Kevin Mathieson announced his bakery’s new retail storefront, located at 250 City Center Avenue (bay 112-114, from Scott road), will be open Friday, December 17, 2010 from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Mild-mannered IT professional by day and food blogger by night, I founded foodiePrints with a single intention, to share my love of all things food. My first post shared a recipe. Many followed. Eventually, I learned Ottawa prepares and serves great food. Thereafter, I started meeting restaurateurs, chefs, cooks, farmers, and other local producers, all good people. Ideas for food-related content swirled in my head. foodiePrints grew into a place to put them. From exploring foreign and domestic cuisines to shopping for exotic ingredients and cobbling together my takes on dishes in my meager kitchen, there are stories to tell. Welcome to foodiePrints. Here, you will find stories about food and drink, cooking, and eating in Canada’s capital. Be it food-related or just food-for-thought, I hope you find something tasty here.
