This little panini shop is located in San Salvario, one of the most vibrant and multicultural areas of Turin. Just having a stroll in these small, perfectly square streets gives you the feeling of being part of a melting pot with lots of design and craft shops, international restaurants, and tiny clubs to grab a quick drink. Plus, in Piazza Madama Cristina, where Mollica is strategically located, there’s an everyday open-air market bringing people in for their weekly groceries.
At Mollica – a word that translates from Italian into “crumb”, or the soft inner part of bread, they are on a mission: prepare your panino with high-quality ingredients from small producers.
From the flour to bake the three types of focaccia which serve as bread options, to all veggies, cold cuts, cheeses, and sauces, everything comes from selected small producers. To give you an example, you can pick Toma from the menu – a typical cheese from Piedmont, produced by small farmers Marco & Sabrina in their alpine pasture at 2.000 mt just 50 km far from Turin.
Just have fun picking your focaccia and your mix of ingredients. Prices are fixed based on the bread you choose. They’ll prepare and warm up your stellar panino in a glimpse!
Can’t figure it out? Here’s my order from last time I was there: plain focaccia with porchetta, gorgonzola cheese, caramelized onions, sun-dried tomatoes, and salad. Can you feel the yumminess already?
