There’s something to be said about the flexibility, simplicity, and complexity of the sandwich. It transcends cultures and has made its way into just about every aspect of the culinary world. The recipe: whatever you want, between two slices of whatever you want, leaves so much room for interpretation. Sometimes a simple peanut butter and jelly will hit the spot, but in New York City the sandwich scene has reached new heights. Here’s our list of must have sandwiches for 2017.
Not just a sandwich truck, Disos Italian sandwich society makes the best Italian subs in New York. All named after Italian mob characters, made with the freshest ingredients from Di Palos in Little Italy. Just don’t interrupt us while we’re eating one!
The empanada sonata
Now an empanada truck might not usually be the first place you look for an epic sandwich, but The Empanada Sonata has created one of the most delicious and innovative sandwiches in the city. The Cuban Jibarito is their twist on a Cuban, but between fried plantains instead of bread. *Drools*
Deli and Dogz
Sometimes you just need a pile of pastrami bigger than your head. Sometimes you need it a couple days a week… So when the urge strikes, the deli and dogz truck will be there to satiate your craving.
Now there’s not much that you can’t throw into a grilled cheese. And no one has made that more obvious that the master sandwich craftsmen at Gorilla Cheese NYC. From buffalo chicken to classic muenster, they are by far the cheesiest in the city.
Rain or shine, the Philly cheesesteak is always a best bet. And now the authentic taste of Philly is here in NYC at Carl's Steaks.
