What sandwiches are peculiar to your region? Are there any unusual sandwiches that your town, city, or state is known for? MMM. Sandwiches.

St. Louis has the St. Paul sandwich. It is egg foo yung on white bread with pickle, mayo, lettuce and tomato (with variations).
No one knows the origins, but it astonishingly appears on many take-out Chinese menus.

Albuquerque turkey: smoked (or not) turkey, Swiss cheese, a variety of condiments, and green chile.

Here in Southern Arizona we have the Sonoran dog. Don't forget the beer and limon.
The Sonoran-style or Estilo Sonora hot dog, found in Tucson, Metro Phoenix, and in neighboring Sonora, Mexico, is a hot dog wrapped in mesquite-smoked bacon then cooked on a grill or on a griddle or comal, then topped with beans, grilled onions, fresh onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise, cream sauce, mustard and Jalapeno salsa or sauce and served on bread and often with a side fresh-roasted chili. It originated in Hermosillo, the capital of Sonora. California

R16 I prefer the pig ears braised (a pressure cooker works fine) then marinate, dried a bit and deep fried crisp. Much better than way.

R11, R13 Yes, basically a Sloppy Joe without the "sauce". I hated the damn things even as a kid.

I've never seen a Hot Brown outside of Kentucky.
"The Hot Brown is an open-faced sandwich of turkey and bacon, covered in Mornay sauce and baked or broiled until the bread is crisp and the sauce begins to brown. Many Hot Browns also include ham with the turkey, and either pimentos or tomatoes over the sauce, and imitation Hot Browns sometimes substitute a commercial cheese sauce instead of the Mornay sauce, though fans of the dish usually decry this substitution."

[quote] Loose meat looks like a nasty old sloppy joe...what's the difference?
Sloppy Joes are made with a tomato based sauce. Maid-Rites or loose meat sandwiches are just plain ground beef with onions.

R20, Pittsburgh's Devonshire is almost identical to the Hot Brown. It starts with toast on the bottom, though.
Less popular today than in the past, the Devonshire also comes in a crabmeat version, too. My favorite was the one at Sodini's.

I'll see your pig ears, R16 and R18, and raise you another popular St. Louis treat - Pig Snoot Sandwiches.
They're better with some crisping, as with pig ears.
And a variation is snoots and trip sandwiches.

No. Really. I've tried a bunch of their sandwiches and have yet to find one that's any good, even though you can totally customize anything you want.

As R5 so eloquently pointed out, Pittsburgh has Primanti's.
I am from there, but honestly, I don't get the fuss. The main point is that FRENCH FRIES GO ON EVERYTHING.
On the sandwich, and also on salads. Yep, if you get a steak or chicken salad, you get a large order of fries dumped in the middle.
I get the cultural meaning (back in the days of the steel mills it was easier to eat) but tastewise, it ain't no great shakes.
|by Anonymous||reply 30||04/18/2013|
So, which sandwich is Primanti's famous for?
I looked at their menu, none of it looks especially appealing to me.
But there must be something that they're famous for, yes?

R31, no particular sandwich, just, as R30 says, sandwiches with fries on them.

Because if so then that Pittsburgh restaurant stole the horseshoe sandwich from Springfield, Illinois.

R31/R34/R37 there's really no need for you to be a total cunt about Pittsburgh and Primanti's.
It's nothing special, but neither is a Chicago beef sandwich, Chicago dog or Philly cheesesteak, quite frankly.

Primanti Brothers you have to have the coleslaw and the fries on the sandwich.
And the meat most characteristic of the place is Capicola.
