        Holy cow! How could I have forgotten...

        the cochon de lait PoBoy at Walker's? It's doubly delicious because it's elusive -- served at Jazz Fest or when Walker's happens to be open.

        Banh Mi - known as the "Vietnamese PoBoy" served at Hong Kong Market on the West Bank. Also available at Pho Tau Bay and most likely other various Vietnamese locales.

      2. What is the Thanksgiving Poboy? Is it a combination of Turkey and ham?
