Bambi’s Summer Cartoccio – Lampredotto as it Once Was

“Perhaps the older ones will remember strolling through tripe shops with family. The aroma made your mouth water. The tripe maker would hand over a piece of tripe, and we’d eat it straight from the foil, with a toothpick in hand,” reminisces Giacomo Trapani.

Inspired by these memories, we created Bambi’s Summer Cartoccio. Enjoy la croce, the most succulent part of trippa, along with nervetti, musetto, paw (callus), poppa, and tongue. Roughly cut and seasoned with salt, pepper, and lemon, served in anti-grease paper. Add our green sauce and hot sauce for an authentic taste of the past!

Musetto Galantina Salad – A Tasty Interlude

What is Galantina?

Galantina, of French origin, is a jellied dish made with chicken or turkey, enriched with various additions like eggs, spices, herbs, dried fruit, and truffles. Popular in Italy in the 60s, it lost favor due to its complex preparation.

Bambi’s Musetto Galantina

We reinvent this classic with musetto (beef snout) and pickles. Served in cubes, seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and zest. Add Bambi’s green and spicy sauce for an extra kick.
