This sandwich with meatballs with tomato or polpette della nonna Al Pomodoro, I tried in my last visit to the eternal city a couple of months ago.
It was at the premises of Mara Cipriani and Sergio Esposito, Mordi e Vai, ("bite and go") located in the Testaccio market, a place that nobody took seriously at the beginning and is now an essential food fast but authentic and quality. I notice that it always has a tail, a long tail but it is worth 100% save because the reward is a sandwich so you don't forget.
The Testaccio market has become a point of reference in the city to eat and Mordi e Vai has joined almost a dozen jobs that serve meals from various genres, but which is more popular, this is. Probably because their sandwiches have the flavour of a city that knows to Holy glory, but in a format. This today is not the most popular (is it the alesso di escotona), but if you liked most.
This today is the meatballs with tomato sandwich. A few meatballs that hide the secret of romano cheese and a tomato sauce without which they would not be what they are. Of course, it is my version of this sandwich, but not I have due do badly because that proves it, already do not want another.
