Best Sandwiches in America
Nobody doesn’t like a good sandwich! The classic meal between bread is so popular in the States that they even celebrate National Sandwich Day on November 3. Whether it’s a panini, rueben or French dip you crave, here are some of the best sandwiches to be found from coast to coast:
Bahn Mi- Saigon Sandwich Shop, San Francisco, CA
The French and Vietnamese elements meld so perfectly in the bahn mi sandwich- French baguette filled with barbecued Vietnemese pork, shredded carrots, onions, jalepenos and cilantro. And no city does Asian food like San Francisco, so you’ll find this awesome sandwich all over the place!
Cuban Roast Sandwich- Paseo, Seattle, WA
Seattle might be a long way from Cuba, but you’d never know it once you sink your teeth into this ridiculous sandwich. Their slow-roasted, marinated pork is loaded up into a crispy baguette, slathered with garlic aioli then heaped with cilantro, jalepenos, and caramelized onions. Their other specialty, the Paseo Press, is pork topped with smoke-cured ham, banana peppers, swiss cheese and onions. Either way, Paseo would be my choice for a last meal, hands down!
Fried Green Tomato and Shrimp Po’ Boy- Mahony’s, New Orleans, LA
When in New Orleans, a po’boy sandwich is an absolute must, and Mahony’s has got one of the best! The traditional sandwiches features fried shrimps, oysters, catfish or other seafood with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayonnaise on French bread. Mahony’s version loads grilled shrimp and fried green tomatoes on their fluffy bread, topped with fresh veggies, herbs and aioli for a delightful twist on the classic.
Ham, Hot Pepper and Rucola Panini- ‘Ino, NYC
This cute little Italian joint is named after “panino,” a flat-pressed Italian sandwich. They get their bread freshly baked across the street, then come up with some wild combinations for the inside! This variation pairs sweet cured ham with firey peppers then lays it all inside the fresh bread with rucola and garlic- pressed to perfection!
Pastrami on Rye- Katz’s, NYC
Yet another great sandwich from New York, this pastrami on rye comes from shop where that infamous scene in When Harry Met Sally took place- the sandwich really is that good! The meat is perfectly thick-cut, fatty and with a smear of mustard on the chewy rye it’s the ultimate sandwich pleasure!
