Charred, Seeded, and Deliciously Filled: Ggiata Deli

Upon entering Ggiata, with its establishments confidently standing in West Hollywood and at the corner of Melrose & Western, one's culinary senses are immediately aroused. The aura is reminiscent of an East Coast neighborhood deli, and the philosophy of using only the best, locally sourced ingredients shines through in the taste of every dish.

Let’s dive into the specifics.

The Italian Classic: Priced at $16, this sandwich is a formidable beast. Layered with Cotto ham, salami, hot capicola, smoked Muenster, and a riot of other fresh ingredients, it’s as authentic as an Italian deli sandwich gets. But it’s the addition of the Calabrian chilies that elevates this sandwich from great to outstanding, providing a zest that lingers. The size? Generous. This is a feast that could satisfy two, but who can resist finishing it solo?

The Spicy P: A misnomer in some ways, as its spice level is more demure compared to the fiery kick of the Italian Classic. Featuring chicken cutlet, spicy vodka, fresh mozzarella, and more, it’s a more modest serving but still a worthy contender in Ggiata’s lineup.

The Don Pepe: This sandwich garnered praise from our newest team member, who hailed it as one of the best chicken sandwiches they’ve had in LA. The exquisite balance of balsamic glaze with the grilled chicken is, in a word, impressive.

Eggplant Parm: Vegetarians, rejoice! This isn’t just an afterthought but a star in its own right. The blend of pomodoro sauce, fresh mozzarella, and basil on a charred seeded baguette encapsulates Ggiata’s commitment to flavor and freshness.

In conclusion, Ggiata isn’t just another deli; it's a culinary destination. Each sandwich tells a story, and each bite is an affirmation of their commitment to quality and flavor. A well-deserved 4 out of 5 forks. Until next time, Ggiata. Grazie!
