In honor of National Sandwich Day here are my top five favorite places to get a sandwich:
- Taylor Gourmet. I’ve been working my way through their menu since they opened a couple blocks away in 2008. What’s to like: good crusty bread, specialty sauces and creative flavor combinations. You should try: the Broad Street with a breaded chicken cutlet, sautéed broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. Good to know: They serve Puck’s Soda including Black Cherry.
- Red Apron Butcher. This place is all about the meat they’re “hell-bent on making this place your go to for all manner of carnivorous goodness. What’s to like: a WIDE variety of smoked and cured, meatballs, sausages and rotisserie meats. You should try: the Beef and Cheddar made with rare roast beef, housemade Atomic Whiz, ranch mayo, on a Kaiser roll. Good to know: Nate’s Fries are fried in aged beef fat and finished with rosemary, garlic and salt.
- SundeVich Food Truck. What’s to like: unique, global sandwich styles. You should try: the Kingston, a jerk chicken, pineapple salsa, greens, spicy slaw and garlic mayo. Good to know: Get there early. Because SundeVich makes everything small batch, they sell until they run out.
- Ted’s Bulletin. What’s to like: the breakfast sandwich is given the love it deserves. You should try: T.U.B.S. (Ted’s Ultimate Breakfast Sammy) Texas toast, fried egg, scrambled egg, sausage, bacon, cheddar
and it’s served with hash browns. Good to know: Ted’s serves breakfast all day, so go later on and also order Drew’s Peanut Butter Bacon Burger (the burger is a close cousin to the sandwich after all).
- The Italian Store. What’s to like: Everything. You should try: The Genoa, mortadella, Genoa salami and provolone cheese. Good to know: There is almost a cult-like following of the Italian Store so be prepared to be blown away.
