I Ate This: Messy Veggie at Bella Cosa

Bella Cosa is a deli and cafe right on 45th in the heart of Wallingford. With a small but stellar gourmet cheese and meat selection, and a well-chosen gaggle of olives, tapanades, sauces, cookies, and other sundries to go along with every selection.

If you ever find yourself in Wallingford at lunchtime, stop in to Bella Cosa for their veggie sandwich with mozzarella and don't skip on the dressing. Veggie sandwiches rarely deliver the carnal pleasure of a meaty hoagie, but this one is a knock out. Roasted tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, eggplant & mushrooms (!!) fresh mozzarella on Macrina Ciabatta, finished on the panini grill. Oooeeee!

The veggies are cooked enough to not slide around and slip out of the bread, but not so cooked that the smoosh into some amorphous veggie goo. The mozzarella is choice and generously provided, and the dressing makes it all a delicious mess. This is the kind of sandwich you hunch over, the kind that laughs at you for the futile use of your napkin in between bites. Bonus: Bella Cosa not only sells wine, but offers a red and white by the glass everyday; they've got a small seating area in the back. SO maybe don't be in such a hurry....
