One trip to this food cart on Cully’s main drag will make you wonder how they manage to pack so much flavor between a square of housemade sourdough focaccia. Their always-changing vegetarian panini breaks the mold (no hummus and sprouts here) with fillings like fava tops, triple-cream brie, roasted carrots, and pickled chilies for something luscious and a little decadent. The sandwich they’re known for, though, is the traditional Tuscan 5&5 featuring grilled, marinated eggplant and a slice of torta di ceci, a chickpea flour pancake. Even though Sorbu excels at transforming vegetables, don’t miss the salciccia that’s like porchetta in sausage patty form, or the cavatelli with braised lamb ragu if it’s on the menu. Order a Peroni and take a seat at one of the wooden tables inside the white tent that almost feels homey.
