Sandwich Contest

Here's how it works: you name your three favorite sandwiches - NO MORE THAN THREE - and, if you like, a short description. I will personally select among the best entries. Prizes: winners will have their prize-winning sandwiches sampled BY ME and I will report back. Second place winners have my eternal gratitude. Burgers are not considered sandwiches for purposes of this contest. Void where prohibited.

Here's three to start you off -

#1. From Bay Cities - spicy soppresata with provolone and spicy pepper salad

#2 the Miami Cuban from Havana Sandwich Company in El Segundo

#3 and how about the banh mi bi (pork skin) at Bánh Mì Cho Cu in Westminster

          The chicken sandwich from Il Tramezzino is my all-time favorite sandwich too! Also the proscuitto with canteloupe.

            Went to Clementine today for the first time and had the Turkey Caliente, and I must say it was really good. Possibly the best turkey sandwich I've eaten! Though the rustic flat bread (like dutch crunch and some other crunchy rolls) tends to cut the roof of my mouth when I eat it, but it was worth it! A little spendy at $10.95, but heh, this is LA I guess.

          2. 1. Bay Cities Parma Prosciutto with fresh mozzerella, tomatoes oil and vinegar.

            2. Langers Pastrami on Rye

            3. Philipes french dip

            1. These are favorites in the family:

              Porto's Pastrami Sandwich

              Felix Cafe (Orange) Choripan sandwich (spicy sausage, ask for Felix sauce on the side)

              Phillipe's lamb with roquefort
