Actually, scallions, cilantro, and peanut butter would probably be pretty good.

I was just thinking that I've never had a lobster roll, either. But then I was vegetarian for 8 years. Looks pretty fucking tasty, if you ask me.

What is Guinness Record for most expensive sandwich ever? There was all manner of fuss in the media about Kobe beef burgers a couple years back, but they have relatively affordable versions at places now, if I'm not mistaken.

I had my lobster sandwich (it looked like the one with the fries and the lemon, above) in Bodega Bay, CA, an hour or so north of San Francisco, at a oceanshide shack in the middle of nowhere.

Another sandwich someone else had in Bodega Bay:


Oregon Shrimp Sandwich. AMAZING. I don’t think that Chad and I will ever stop talking about this sandwich. The shrimp were so velvety, and made just a touch creamier with mayonnaise and a little crunchy from some celery, but the masterstroke was the Portugeuse cheese melted on top, which was also just a little chewy and caramelized on the edges in the best way. This is definitely in the pantheon of perfect sandwiches.

The waitress said that their ham and cheese sandwich is made in a similar way, so get that if this isn’t on the menu. She said that the cheese is Portugal’s oldest and named it quickly, but I don’t remember it and will have to do some research.

Then, the DJ took his sandwich to China Wok (no idea which one, and quite frankly, does it really matter?), where he was allowed to sauté his own order of General Tso's chicken (apparently, he used to work there), which was placed piping hot on top of the steak, peppers, and onions. If you're following along at home, here's where the instructions get a little crazy:

Get 3 or 4 raw crab rangoons, remove the cheese and spread on the inside of the top half of the bun

Re: Chick-fil-a

The bun is like lingerie -- there, but not, providing delicious support without obscuring the main flavor. The first bite changes everything you think you know about chicken

I want these two:

Hot Lobster Roll
Abbot’s Lobster in the Rough, Noank, Connecticut
The best way to get to Abbott’s is by boat -- float in, tie up, and order the classic, made with a quarter pound of meat, melted butter, and not a drop of mayo. Get a table out on the dock. (117 Pearl Street; 860-536-7719)

Maple-Barbecue Pulled Pork
Vermont Country Deli, Brattleboro, Vermont
Bunch of northerners making pulled pork? Damn straight. Two words: Maple. Syrup. (436 Western Avenue; 802-257-9254)

Eazy, Thursday, 21 February 2008 23:13 (6 years ago) Permalink

Pork sandwich at Paseo (Seattle, by the zoo) really is one of the best damn sandwiches I've ever had in my life. Doesn't cost much neither.

Speaking of General Tso's Chicken, cheap sandwich = $0.75 supermarket roll ($0.99 if yr fancy), plus about two bucks worth of gnarly deli Chinese for the insides part. Sometimes, they even have little hot sauce packs to top it off.

Great interview with Elliot Gould about his namesake sandwich at the Stage Delicatessen.

Elliott Gould talks exactly how you'd hope Elliott Gould would talk. But with more drugs.

contenderizer, Thursday, 21 February 2008 23:18 (6 years ago) Permalink

the only sandwich here that looks good is the steak one and that's cos it's a steak with crinkle-cut chips. maybe this stuff is un-photogenic, i don't know, some of the descriptions are mouth watering.

roast duck po boy at crabby jack's just across the parish line. the picture does not do justice to its gravy soaked messy amazingness.

adam, Thursday, 21 February 2008 23:58 (6 years ago) Permalink

that's what i mean, it looks anaemic but i'm sure it's completely fit as. is there something about them that makes them look rubbish in photos? (lack of taste-a-vision i spose but still.)

or something, Friday, 22 February 2008 00:01 (6 years ago) Permalink

the only thing that keeps me from loving lobster roll is the mayo. otherwise, perfection.

food photography is either bad or really, really glossy and annoying and food-pornish. no one has yet discovered the correct way to take pictures of food.

Rock Hardy, Friday, 22 February 2008 03:08 (6 years ago) Permalink

see, a lot of these i wldn't even really consider sandwiches somehow, esp if they involve cooked, warm food. or lobster. or BLTs. or smoked meat. or grilled cheese. they're more like, i don't know, a dish or a specialty. something i maybe wldn't make at home anyway.
versus
all the stupid slapped-together sandwiches i could make at home with even better bread & ingredients but which cost $8-$12 and ooh you get a side salad or fries. and then they know we're on to them, so they offer a bunch of sandwiches with 'weird' components when really they are not that weird at all or interesting and the whole concept is totally transparent to the point where it all just turns around on you and you know you're making way too big a deal out of sandwiches

You don't consider a BLT or a grilled cheese a sandwich...?

those are i guess even my favourite sandwiches so that they actually transcend all food genres

rrrobyn, Friday, 22 February 2008 03:28 (6 years ago) Permalink

I was thinking that if the list was in North America and not the USA they would include Schwartz's.

Eazy, Friday, 22 February 2008 03:28 (6 years ago) Permalink

also BLTs and grilled cheese and smoked meat aren't usually considered expensive sandwiches!

sensuous sandwich had sunday comics under the tabletops and there were enough of them that you could kind of cycle through. there were cathy, garfield, and naked cupid posters on the wall. their sandwiches were cheap but fucking rich on cream cheese.
