So Many Sandwiches, So Little Time

New Andy Deli at the corner of 17th and Broadway. Turkey sub special with a can of soda for $5.99, that and the fact that it is close to my job are the only reasons to eat this sandwich. It's a solid sandwich that lacks the interest that would make you wanna eat it more than 2 or 3 times a year and only when you've tired of everything else in the neighborhood.

This sandwich was so memorable that I forgot the name of the deli where I got it. It's on Thompson right across from the Soho Grand Hotel. However it was far better than the turkey special and exactly the same price without the free soda. I ordered the Breaded Chicken Cutlet, Lettuce, Tomato and Mayo and got a toasted roll without asking for it. Generally I don't like my rolls toasted, an annoying trend over exposed by that crappy chain Quiznos...m,m,m, not so good. Undaunted I ate the sandwich with reckless abandon rarely seen by those who aren't starving. I topped it off with and ice cold glass of tap water which thankfully was free of charge.

Toasted here = good. The Caprese sandwich at Lucky Strike in Soho is one of my favorites even if I didn't have fries with it that day, I just felt like a side of salad would be more complimentary. Put Fresh Mozzarella on any sandwich for me and it will probably be a winner, heck Fresh Mozzarella on a plate by itself would even do the trick. Here the combination works extraordinarily well together with the toasted bread adding a tremendous crunch (of course when I want it). The Grilled Chicken Sandwich at Lucky Strike also works very well for me when I am in the mood, but alas they don't put any Mozzarella on it...hmmm maybe next time I should ask. What a thought!

FYI: I did not eat all these sandwiches in one day and I don't recommend trying it either. These sandwiches should only be eaten by professional sandwich eaters under the supervision of other consenting adults. Thank you.
