Looking for two sandwiches

Every now and again I get a yen for a great Monte Christo Sandwich.
Does anyone know if they are even served anymore and where?
And...it seems to me I saw a turducken sandwich on a local menu somewhere but can't remember which restaurant. Can anyone help me out here?
Turducken from Seisels was great for Christmas but the real surprise was the gravy. It was so rich from the duck that you could drink it! I will definitely do that one again. Anxious to try a sandwich of turducken, actually I never thought of it in a sandwich but why not?

  1. Just had a good Monte Christo at the little place on Adams avenue, Cafe 2121. It was the blackboard special the day we ate there and it was quite delicious -- old time comfort food, not at all trendy but so satisfying.

    1. Thanks, Jim. I'll take your word or it any day! I'll be sure to try it.
      Have you ever had a turducken sandwich? I'm really curious about that one.

      1. I know it's a chain so please don't throw rocks at me... but I recently attended a birthday dinner at Bennigan's in Mission Valley and they had a monte cristo on the menu. Can't vouch for it's authenticity or greatness, but it's there all the time.

          Thanks for the response. No rocks. Never can tell where we may end up eating.
          Now for that turducken sand. I know I saw it on an online menu but can't remember which one. Someone has to know, it's not that ordinary.

          1. Only place I ever tasted (or even heard of) a turducken sandwich was in our kitchen -- but, alas, the makings are all gone. Seriously, I don't recall ever having seen turducken on a menu anywhere, but I don't know why not.

              Here's a p.s. on the Turducken. Di said she thought she remembered seeing that sandwich on the memo at the restaurant that used to occupy the space where Blue Water Grill is now. Can't remember the name of it, but it had upscale ambitions, and we remember the food as being very good. Hope that helps.

                I think you're referring to Sassafras- it was a cool spot with good food. We were sad to see it go.

                  That's it! And I agree totally, though I do like Blue Water Grill.
