In a world full of fast food, it’s really nice to find a location dedicated to easy but healthy meals. Via San Massimo is 500m from Mole Antonelliana and Palazzo Nuovo, the university center for humanities. And Piadina is one of the fundamental foods for students added to pizza and sushi if it’s “fancy night”.
Piadina is a flat bread typical of Emilia -Romagna region, but It’s common all over Italy. The thing that distinguishes “Bombo” from the other Piadina shops is the dough. It’s completely artisanal and there are different kinds: there is the traditional one made with lard, or the traditional made with extra virgin olive oil. Then there are some more but the very best is Senatore Cappelli. This unique dough is extremely light but tasty.
Also the fillings are carefully selected. There are a lot of seasonal greens that come and go from the menu (ex. Asparagus, pumpkin cream) If you’re vegetarian/vegan, here you will have no problem in finding something delicious other than the usual “mix of grilled greens”. You can even have vegan mayo.
As an omnivore, I suggest the bombo-roll with sausage, silano cheese and cime di rapa (greens tasting like broccoli, typical of southern Italy) made with Senatore Cappelli dough.
They’re having an “experiment” period for gnocco fritto (fried dough). You should try It.
As there are only six chairs, I suggest eating your piada of choice in the nearby gardens of “Aiuola Balbo”.
Enjoy your Italy in a bite.
