    Does it have to be a tripe cart? Nerbone in the Mercato Centrale does a good lampredotto panino.

      There used to be a tripe cart parked right outside that market.

        Here is a website with a list of tripperie in Florence - they are not all carts.
        Also, if you input tripe and Florence,IT into the restaurant search engine, it will identify and map a list of these for you. here

          Have a look at Rosespot's trip report at the end of this thread:

          She mentions a tripe cart that wasn't open, a tripe stand in the Mercato Sant'Ambrogio that was and a restaurant that calls itself a tripperia.

            My favorite tripe carts are:
            Orazio Nencioni
            Loggia del Porcellino, Florence

            Lupen e Margo
            Via dell Ariento, Florence (just outside the Mercato Centrale): excellent sauces!

            L’Antico Trippai
            Piazza Cimatori

            These are all great and centrally located, traditional trip carts.

              I ate at both Lupen e Margo and L'Antico Trippaio recently. Both were great for tripe and lampredotto. If you like spicy sauce, definitely try Lupen e Margo.
