Best Sandwich?

  • 9

I've had some pretty darn good sandwiches at Manny's Tortas and Bewitched Deli. I've had REALLY good options in the pork hoagie at Chindian and the Philly with provo, OG style at Savoy in Uptown. I'm looking for other recommendations and will soon try the Brasa options. Please don't suggest Banh mi at Quang please. They are decent tasting and inexpensive but not crave worthy whatsoever.

  1. I really like the catfish Po' Boy at Sea Salt. Needs a little extra hot sauce, of which they have a massive amount.

    1. Is one permitted to suggest the pork loin sandwich (aka bahn mi) from Ngon Bistro? It is most definitely crave-worthy for me, at least...

      1. Probably not THE best in town, but the Blue Cow and Caffrey's in uptown is damn good.

        1. I'm a big fan of the fried egg sandwich at the Town Talk Diner. Ooey gooey, salty deliciousness!
          Maverick's roast beef is pretty awesome, too.

          1. Oooh, just remembered another great sandwich: the Italiano from the Dari-ette in St. Paul. It's more or less the so-called "Hot Dago" I believe-- sausage, cheese, and red sauce.

            1. Manny's and Be'Wiched are best of breed.

              I like the Mayslack at Mayslack's, though I am told it is a mere shadow of its former self. Shadows can be tasty.

              I also like the Steak Sandwich at Monte Carlo.

              I know some people who are mad about the roast beef at Chris & Robb's. I thought it was fine, though I don't understand the enthusiasm. Maybe you will.

              There are others here more enthusiastic about Cheeky Monkey than I am, so I'll let them try to persuade you.

              1. The egg sandwich at the 112 Eatery is very tasty. I would also try some places that make bahn mi fresh, like Hoang Thien and Bun Mi in Minneapolis, and Saigon in St Paul. Read epic sandwich on City Pages' Hot Dish blog for more ideas:

                1. Town of Nelson at the Nelson Cheese House on Como in St. Paul. Not the best. But it satisfies a need.

                    C.G. Hams in Minnetonka is the best sandwich shop I've found in the cities. They have pretty wide variety and I've never been dissapionted. These people know their meat. Their smoked pulled pork tastes like it just spent 14 hours slow cooking on my weber.
