Sandwich at Sergimmo Salumeria

Sometimes you can tell a place is good just by checking out the lines at lunch.  Case in point- Sergimmo's.  I don't think I've ever walked by without seeing packed tables and lines snaking around the store for to go orders.  I finally saw a little breathing room one day and decided to squeeze myself in for a taste.  The smell of fresh mozzarella and briny olives hit me full in the face as the door opened...that's a good sign.  The massive Panini list looked a bit overwhelming but I finally settled on the Lombardi with Grilled Chicken, mozzarella, tomatoes, arugula and pesto.

Don't let the picture fool you, this sandwich was enormous and seriously awesome.  All of the ingredients were so fresh...the bread was freshly baked with the perfect amount of chew, the mozzarella was creamy and the pesto...good lord the pesto...I was licking it off my fingers with each bite!  In  the"dead zone" of lunch options I have near 34th & 10th, this place is a shining ray of light.  Looks like I will be cramming myself in with the rest of the lunch crowd.
