Florentines love tripe. There are tripe stands in the streets and the locals line up for this treat…a panino di trippa or lampredotto for lunch.
Tripe is usually cooked in a tomato sauce, lampredotto is simmered in a seasoned broth. It is eaten with just salt and pepper, salsa verde or hot sauce.
I can’t stand the sight or smell of either and I avoid the stands altogether, but they do sell more reasonable looking food if you are interested.
