Lemon Basil Tart - Piper
Another entry from the fabulous breakfast buffet at Piper's in Oceanside, CA. This dessert sandwich was absolutely refreshing. A perfect sweet treat for a morning brunch This tart had a Lemon and basil moose that catches the eye from across the room. While sweet and lemony, the notes of basil add an aromatic earthiness to the dish balancing out the sweetness. This is a great experience and while not something you would find yourself eating several of, it is a unique take on the lemon tart. 7.1/10 dessert sandwich.
Carne Asada Burrito - Colima's Mexican Restaurant
The Carne Asada Burrito from Colima's Mexican Restaurant in Oceanside, CA. Everything you love in a carne asada burrito displayed like a masterful craft in a small hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Oceanside. This burrito was HUGE for its price and loaded with perfectly seasoned carne asada. The house guacamole was creamy and spicy enough to not need added salsa, but not too hot to make the burrito unenjoyable. 8.6/10 Sandwich, try it if you're in the area!
Everything Bagel and Lox - Piper
The Everything bagel and Lox from Piper located in the Lobby of The Seabird Resort in Oceanside, CA. Personally, Im not a fish fan. However, The Everything bagel and Lox found at the Breakfast buffet from Piper's is an absolutely mind-blowing experience. The bagel is toasted to perfection. The cream cheese spread is lightly whipped making it easy to spread but the real star of the show is the succulent smoked salmon used to top the bagel off. The salmon is salty yet fresh and the smoky flavor profile compliments the seasoning on the everything bagel so well that you almost forget you're eating fish. This open face delight is sure to be the highlight of your morning. 8.8/10 sandwich.
Grilled Chicken + Avocado - High/Low
The Grilled Chicken + Avocado Sandwich from High/Low restaurant located in Oceanside, CA right off the beach. This was a pleasant light affair containing grilled chicken, Avocado, Arugula, Havarti cheese, and an earthy Arugula Pesto sauce. The offered side is a house Coleslaw which I chose to add to the sandwich instead of eating it separately. Adding the Coleslaw was a definite improvement to the sandwich as the Chicken, while cooked perfectly, was lacking in seasoning. 6.3/10 Sandwich, worth trying during brunch.
Ziggy The Piggy - Zuppaman
The Ziggy the Piggy from Zuppaman sandwich shop in Sandusky, Ohio. This sandwhich was a one of a kind creation including a delicious and tender BBQ Pork Loin, savory Mac n Cheese, Caramelized Onions, Maple Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, and all bundled together with love in a toasted wrap. 8.7/10 sandwich. Will be revisiting this shop to try one of their many other original creations. If you're in the Sandusky area, love yourself right and get a sandwich from Zuppaman!
Logan Webb - Ike's Love & Sandwiches
The Logan Webb from Ike's Love and Sandwiches in Goodyear, AZ. Turkey, Bacon, Beer-Battered Onion Rings, Godfather Sauce, Teriyaki, Avocado, Pepper Jack, Cheddar, and the house "Dirty Sauce". From Ike's website: "Ike’s Dirty Sauce is a garlic aioli with our secret blend of seasonings and spices. *Vegan Dirty Sauce is also available." 6.9/10 sandwich. A brilliant mash of flavors that are Tangy and savory. The sandwich is packed full of meat and sauce but the bread is not soggy. Would eat again.
Barry Bonds - Ike's Love & Sandwiches
The Barry Bonds from Ike Love and Sandwiches. Another classics from Ike's that much like it's namesake, knocks it out of the park. A delicious blend of Turkey, Bacon, and Swiss. All sandwiches at Ike's are served hot with dirty sauce, lettuce, and tomato. 6.93/10 sandwich. I recommend this as a starter when going to Ike's if you are not an adventurous person.
Matt Cain - Ike's Love & Sandwiches
The Matt Cain from Ike's. This sandwich, made of Roast Beef, Salami, Turkey, Godfather Sauce, and Provolone, is listed as #18 on Ike's long list of creations. Ike's second signature sauce, Godfather Sauce, is a creamy Garlic Dijon horseradish that is added to select sandwiches. The Godfather sauce really compliments the Roast beef and Salami while the garlic and Provolone mellow out the horseradish in the sauce. 7.3/10 sandwich. A sandwich for veteran sandwich lovers.
The Da Vinci - Ike's Love & Sandwiches
Number 118 on the list of creation for Ike's Love and Sandwiches is the Da Vinci. Consisting of Turkey, Ham, Salami, Italian Dressing, Provolone, and house "Dirty Sauce", This sandwich is great for all sandwich lovers. What' seemingly a clash between the classic Club sandwich and the Italian sandwich, the Da Vinci is a delicious combinations of meats and sauces. 7.7/10 Sandwich. Probably my favorite sandwich on the Ike's menu.
Country Club - Jimmy John's
The Country Club from Jimmy Johns. Exactly what you would expect from a club sandwich. Made with hand-sliced turkey breast, smoked ham and provolone cheese and served on your choice of fresh-baked French bread, Thick-Sliced Wheat bread or the lettuce-wrapped "Unwich". Jimmy Johns has been known for have hearty sandwiches made at an Alarmingly fast rate. The speed of the process may very well affect the quality of the sandwich however. 5.5/10 sandwich. Good for a chain restaurant.
Pastrami and Turkey - World of Sourdough
The Pastrami and Turkey sandwich from World of Sourdough in Avondale, AZ. What a delight this sandwich was. An exquisite and gracefully crafted sub filled with Thinly Sliced Lean Pastrami, Gourmet Turkey Breast, lettuce, tomatoes, and your choice of cheese and condiments. Also served with each sandwich is a very fresh and crisp dill pickle spear. The bread is the real take home for this sandwich, as the freshly baked sourdough rolls keep you coming back bite after bite. 8.6/10 sandwich. Will be eating again!
The Dangerwich - Subway
A subway online ordering exclusive. This sandwich can only be ordered online through the subway mobile app. The Dangerwich, as dubbed by American Football Pro Athlete Russell Wilson, consists of pepperoni, salami, black forest ham, provolone cheese and bacon on Italian Herbs and Cheese bread, topped with lettuce, green peppers, tomatoes, banana peppers, and finished with yellow mustard and mayo. Russell is absolutely on to something because this is by far one of the best combinations I have had from Subway. 6.9/10 sandwich. I will always bring this up every time someone mentions Subway.
The Mr. Pickle - Mr. Pickle's Sandwich Shop
The Mr. Pickle from Mr. Pickles Sandwich Shop consists of Chunked chicken breast pieces with Bacon, Monterey Jacks, Avocado, and what is described as "The works" by the shop. "THE WORKS" is Mayo, Mustard, Garlic Sauce, Tomato, Onion, Pickles, Pepperoncini, and Lettuce. 5.25/10 sandwich. The bread was amazing. The Dutch crunch roll is new to me and I honestly wish every sandwich place had this option. The chicken breast was not for me and was really what took away from the overall score of the sandwich. Overall, a good sandwich. Would eat again if someone gave me one, would not order it for myself again.
