And here I am saying: "just bring me the club w/ extra bacon and two more porters, please"... like an asshole.

I don't see any hot dogs on that list. Therefore, hot dogs are NOT a sandwich.

I rest my case.

If you are ever in Chile, or in a Chilean restaurant, order one of these sandwiches... you won't be disappointed.

No Cuban? No sabich? Hmph.

I like that a nice simple good bread, good ham, good butter sandwich made the list. Because what more do you need in life.

The Guardian? Filet of haddock, coated in bread crumbs then deep fried is the best sandwich. Serve with a side of chips.

Put some of the chips on the sandwich and you've got a winner.

I want a Cuban with pickles and lots of mustard. I'd settle for pastrami on rye but the deli with the nice Russian ladies who make them perfectly is closed on Mondays.

I do like the look of the toasted sandwich with bacon, salmon and mango chutney. I may have to try making one of those.

No liverwurst, mayo and American cheese sandwich?
 
2020-10-26 11:42:51 AM  
DNRTFA, but given that this is England, they probably included french fries on a buttered roll, right?  (A "chip butty" is what they call it, I think).

It's not a sandwich if it's nothing but starch.

The bowling alley where I ate dinner every Friday for 12 years had The Best tuna melt ever. Thick bread lovingly cooked in butter, tuna that just fishy enough and was mixed with mayo and not Miracle Whip, and delicious, pungent swiss cheese. I always went the extra mile and made it a basket with the fries. It would take me until the 4th frame to finish it, mostly because I was eating with my left hand to keep the buttery goodness off my money maker (bowling/right hand).

I've not found its equal in the 9 years since the place closed.

The best sandwich is the one in front of you when you're really hungry.

Sure, like the Guardian has any idea about good sammy's.

Have you seen what these people call breakfast?

PB&J on white bread made the list? Why not Oscar Meyer balogna and Velveeta on Wonder Bread with Miracle Whip for crying out loud?

Lucky for me that bowling is a very cardio-centric activity [1], so I didn't gain any weight during that time [2], especially since I was at the age where your metabolism almost stops.

1. No, it isn't.
2. Yes, I did.

It's a NJ thing. And the best sloppy joes come from kosher delis, which is why the best don't have cheese.

I have a difficult time not ordering a Reuben if I see it on the menu. But, that said, it's an easy go-to if I don't see anything else I like.

Cubans are much harder to find in Montana than they should be. I tried jimmy Johns' Cuban a few month ago, and it was fine, but we can do better, Montana!

The obvious answers are either the Bushman or the Beast from Cherry Valley in Whitestone, or the Thanksgiving leftover frankenstein sandwich where everything gets put between two slices of bread.

I'm also partial to the turkey club or a good Reuben.

It's the canonical condiment for a Montreal Smoked Meat sandwich, and it's pretty damned tasty. The sandwich is pretty simple -- rye bread, meat, yellow mustard, that's all -- but the preparation of the meat takes a while and I haven't had a good one outside of Montreal restaurants that sell this stuff by the ton, though I've heard you can get a decent one in NYC made by Montreal expatriates. (And don't even think of buying one from the "La Belle Province" chain, their food is horrible.)

It's a take on corned beef. A whole brisket, cured for days, spiced with the same spice mix that became "Montreal Steak Seasoning", smoked for a long time, then steamed for a couple hours. I think that's why restaurants that don't specialize in this particular sandwich usually miss the mark, usually it's tougher and not as flavorful.

I lived in WI for a while. That was the first place I encountered turkey and dressing sandwiches. Not quite the full Thanksgiving leftover sandwich. It was a feature of just about any potluck from late Nov. to Xmas. I preferred my usual open face turkey left over sandwich. Toast, turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Maybe some stuffing and cranberry on the side

Not sure where in Montana you are, but when I lived there in Great Falls, there was a place called The Montana Sub Shop. The Googles says it's still there. I would love a sandwich from there right now. Also, right by the air force base was a place called Dagwood's that had the best tasting bread.
