Mufalettas in L.A.?

Anyone know of a place that serves (eat in or take out!) a real Mufaletta? Preferably somewhere in the Westside or down through the South Bay, but will haul ourselves into the Valley if that's where a good one can be found. Thanks in advance for any recs.

  1. The Gumbo Pot in the Farmers' Market at Third and Fairfax serves a Muffaletta. I found their version a little skimpy on the meat though.

      The Gumbo Pot version is okay (I prefer to order the cold Muffaletta, Central Grocery style) but the bread ain't happening.

    2. find a good recipe and make your own. this simple sammich is somehow just not happening here, probably because the few places who serve it don't have the patience/refrigerator space to let the olive mixture marinate and blend.

      1. The Godmother sandwich with "the works" and the hot pepper/olive mixture at Bay Cities Deli comes very close.

        1. if you want to make your own, then you can buy a killer olive/hot pepper mixture at the Beverly Hills Cheese Store. Or you can make your own...

          1. I would suggest mail-ordering the olive salad (and bread) from Central Grocery or Gambinos.

            If you prefer not to order through the mail, the mix they have at Cheese Store of BH is shipped in from NO,LA.
