Looking for a great Muffuletta
All these shows are on lately showing muffuletta's, I want to try, I'd have to make it without mortadela (sorry) but dying to try a great one, one with the olive salad with pepperoncinis sounds perfect, anyone know where i can find one near Long Beach?
The only Muffuletta that I have had in L.A. (not LA) was from the Gumbo Pot. When made fresh and served promptly they are indeed excellent. But alas the usual here is that they are made ahead of time and then stored in the refer. When ordered by a customer they are zapped in their microwave which results in a great roll being ruined and the filling being served warm/hot which is all wrong! They are a better if you don't zap it and let it come to room temp on the way home or to a favorite picnic spot.
Note that I've had more than my fair share of them at Central Grocery and as of a few years ago my favorite version at Progress Grocery in The Big Easy. They are made to order at both and no microwaves are involved in their prep!
Muffulettas aside, I do loveThe Gumbo Pot's Jambalaya and Creole Mustard Potato Salad but I haven't tried anything atThe Gumbo Pot for quite a while.

It's not in LB, but there is a place in Riverside !!! That if you find yourself stuck in, is terrific. Jason's Deli, and you can order a 1/4 sandwich, 1/2, and it's quite good (I've been to NO before the hurricane!).
