Everybody loves a good sandwich.
Just take two pieces of bread and slap some meat and a few condiments inside, and hoo-boy, you just know that’s good eatin’.
And as you travel around the country like Web Watch has, you’ll know that everywhere has a regional specialty that just defines it perfectly.
We recall one trip we took to Dallas where we found ourselves at a small cafeteria looking for lunch. On the menu, it said “steak sandwich”, which we thought sounded delightful.
To our chagrin, we received the local favorite “chicken-fried steak” sandwich, which is definitely not what we were expecting or had in mind.
Perhaps that’s why some enterprising folks decided to dedicate a website to STATELY SANDWICHES, a compilation and visual description of what one could expect to find as an official (unofficial) State Sandwich.
New York’s state sandwich is fairly easy: the classic deli staple, the reuben.
North Carolina? A pulled pork sandwich with slaw.
Pennsylvania? The cheesesteak, naturally.
Don’t know why Massachusetts got Fluffernutter. Perhaps there needs to be a bit more of an explanation there. Do you know why? Let us know in the comments, below.
So what would you have as your official state sandwich? Or do you need to go a bit more local and declare an official Sandwich of your City?
