Where will I find the greatest sandwich on planet earth, and what flavour is it?
a good excuse for people to try a decent stout and realise how awful Guinness is.
Perhaps the sandwich could be combined with a pint of the dark stuff?
if so, bring it!
never really have sandwiches in pubs, hot food always seems more tempting.
Toasties don't count as sandwiches, right? Where's Bamos?
I had a sandwich in a pub it had a pickled onion in it.
about Guiness being awful then yes?
in comparison to 99% of the non-mass produced stouts, it's terrible.
It's easily the worst stout, but then I like stout. I'll definitely buy a Guinness if the other options are all lagers. In summary: Guinness = average.
In the Wharf we have a seperate Birleys that deals only in beef (roast or salt), lamb and pork sandwiches. The pork must be 1200 calories but is so so good.
first brushing teeth and now you think sandwiches, which are the greatest snack/lunch food of ALL TIME, are "meh"...? there is no hope for you son.
I eat soup for lunch.
Tiger baguette, some sort of meat, mustard in my desk... massively huge and about the same price.
with a pint of stout
Get some soft, fluffy white bread. Butter (real butter) one of the two slices. Pop the other in the toaster at setting 2.
On slice one, put thin slices of tomato on. Then, add slices of a mature (not too mature) English cheddar.
Atop that, balance salt and vinegar crisps (Walkers only).
Take the toasted slice of bread and spread a dollop of garlic mayo across it. Then, press down onto the stack of fillings, cracking the crisps as you do. Neatly slice (triangles).
Enjoy with a cold lemonade. You're welcome.
They're too wet and mushy, and if placed badly will soak into the bread and ruin it. Acceptable alternatives include sundried tomatoes, some sort of relish, maybe even a bit of ketchup.
only detonating when you've bitten in. Agreed for the beef tomatoes (although my dad's old school combo of those with vinegar in a sandwich is amazing).
But I can't abide a soggy sandwich.
nothing worse. oh actually, only thing is when your lettuce has just 'turned' and isnt as green as it should be >:-(
Fuck you McDOnald's Greenwich for ruining my big tasty with brown lettuce and green tomatoes. This, kids, is why you should never open up the contents of your foul fast food sandwich and peer inside in wonderment at it. All you will find is an urbanmythical chicken cyst or brown lettuce or green stalky tomatoe, and you will cry and embarrass your partner and all of the other diners.
I had a disappointingly soggy sandwich for breakfast. One giant mushroom and two halves of grilled tomato. Very tasty, but the tomato soaked the bread to mush by the time I'd eaten half of it.
WHERE'S THE BEEF? (Actually probably pork in this case).
I don't even think I'm trolling.
make them fresh and you'd be mad not to take the opportunity to add tomato.
Straight cheese and tomato sandwich (tons of salt and pepper) is one of my favourite freshly made sandwiches.
and it's either a salt beef bagel or a vietnamese banh mi, with lots of coriander chili and soy. both amongst the tasties things a person can eat.
is truly the taste of the future. slice me a gherkin for it and i'll shed tears of joy
aren't they like an america thing? like pret have one called the new yorker or something and its salt beef, mustard and gherkins. OH GHERKINS.
Brooklyn delis are some of the happiest places in the world.
*descends into teary nostalgia*
but the same thing can be said for any holiday. I base my holidays entirely around food.
I won't go on holiday to somewhere with rubbish food
Supermarkets. I could walk round a foreign supermarket for hours.
I love him <3
less chance of seeing 100 different packets of Paprika crisps
is starting a 'jewish deli with cocktails' called Mishkins. I expect their salt beef to be epic.
They're on twitter already so it might be worth a follow in case there's a soft launch.
it will most likely involve sourdough bread and pastrami. Perhaps a Reuben?
My favourite, though I don't bother often, is: tiger bread, thickly spread with nice cold hummous, then lots of onion and red pepper, hot out of the pan, cooked with garlic and chilli.
Mmm. Eat with salt and vinegar crisps.
But if the proportions are right it's so tasty it doesn't need meat.
but could do with some falafel/halloumi :)
That's the direction this website should be taking.
big fuck off slice of extra mature cheddar
freshly chopped red onion
big fuck off dollop of home made green tomato chutney
Reuben sandwiches are excellent:
I'm fucking starving now.
They look amazing.
made from an entire loaf of bread I baked and sliced lengthways?!:DDD
Brown bread, roast beef, horseradish and green asparagus spears
does an absolutely incredible sandwich.
Glad to be of service.
is from Marks & Spencer's - ''Fully Loaded Ranch Beef Sandwich''
Decent thick mayo, fluffy thick white buttered bread. NO SALAD. It's just not needed in this combo. If the chicken is still-slightly-warm-from-being roasted then so much the better.
See also, cheesem mayo and onion. I am having lots of sandwiches for lunch today. so amazing. I'm so hungry.
about the Outsider Tart mitsakis sandwich. It's cured ham, provolone cheese and olive tapernade on salted ciabatta. Some very sensible person took the time to photograph it: http://lockerz.com/s/89241692
proper bread sliced at least inch thick, butter, houmous, brie, salad leaves, salt and pepper...pack of ready salted real mcCoys on the side
*chorizo, cheddar and roast capsicum (peppers)
*bacon, cream cheese and cos lettuce
*grilled chicken, beetroot, rocket, goats cheese and lemon juice
*pressed chicken, pesto, mushroom, Jarlsberg and spinach
*cheese and tomato w S&P (only if freshly made)
Time to move on x
can't be british because british bread is shite
can't be american because there's too much stuff in between the bread and the bread is a key part of the sandwich concept
could maybe be french because of the fine bread tradition and quality meats and cheeses but i can't think of many specifically french sandwiches so i guess not
can't be asian because they don't really make loaves or whatever
can't be african because i don't really know anything about african sandwiches apart from that south african thing where they tip curry into a hollowed out loaf but that's not really a sandwich
the winning sandwich therefore is italian
****PANINO CON PORCHETTA****
