New Brunswick 'Fat-Cats'
There are truly not much food products better than the fat cats at Rutgers and New brunswick, especially those from the grease trucks.
I must not be the only one that has experimented with their own fat cat sandwiches at home, my newest creation being:
on a loaf of ciabatta, clams, red sauce, french fries, eggplant, mushrooms, chicken fingers and tons of hot sauce.
Id love to hear some other creations.
OK Here goes, while it's not from New Brunswick, I think it fits this category. I recently tried a Torta Cubano. I mistakenly thought it would be a Cuban Sandwich, here's what it was. A two egg & chorizo omlet on a oval roll, topped with beef Milanese (breaded & fried beef), a slice of grilled ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, avacado, onion, pickled jalapeno, refried beans, chipotle salsa, and mayo. It was a good as it sounds, in other words, if it sounds yuk, it would be for you, I absolutely LOVED it. The cheese was Queso Oaxaca, which is alot like fresh mozzarella. I had it at Taco's No Problem on Broad St. in Keyport.
I agree that the grease trucks of New Brunswick offer a delicacy to the NJ Dining scene. I would have to suggest the following fat cat creation, it is somewhat of a spin-off of the sandwich Adam Sandler made in the movie Spanglish, but with a bit more New Brunswick......
Sourdough Grilled, 2 fried eggs, american cheese, waffle fries, pork roll, spinach artichoke dip, and mayonaisse......
Give it a shot.
Ahh the grease trucks...
Brings me back. Ate there all the time as a student, but never once sober!
Well, at least not a Fat-Cat. Maybe a hot dog or something between classes, and a Fat-Cat at 3:30 am on Sunday morning.
I have never experimented with Fat-Cats at home. I limit my zaniness to omelettes primarily.
