I just ran across a reference to a South African street food called Bunny Chow -- it's any type of curry stuffed into a loaf of white bread.
Here's a rather amusing explanation:

Has anyone ever seen this in L.A. or maybe in Artesia? Sounds like it would be fun to try.

    In Van Nuys, the Springbok Bar & Grill serves Bunny Chow. They are at 16153 Victory Blvd, Van Nuys, CA 91316

      They have also just opened a new location in Long Beach, so bunny chow chowing is expanding...

        I've been to the Springbok in LB (Shoreline Village) a few times for lunch and while I haven't had the bunny chow, I will say that their calamari plate, served on a nicely seasoned bed of rice, is delicious. The breading is light and mixed with a few herbs, fried to perfect tenderness.

        I've also tried the boerewors roll (a giant sausage on a French roll), which kind of overwhelmed me. And the chicken liver peri peri, which is like a really good chili con carne made with chicken livers. No, it IS good.

        But my favorite thing there is the biltong, which you can order by the half- or full-pound, to go. I did have one marginal batch (I think they make it there), but the others have been habit forming. Meat crack!

      Cool! I'm so glad someone has heard of it.

        That is very much fun. If I didn't have dinner in the oven right now, I might be tempted to make one of these...unless getting to Van Nuys might be faster!
