Nothing from a can, concentrate, or (heaven forbid) powder.
Oh, and please, no recs for Hot Dog On a Stick. :-)
Thanks very much.
Sorry, I don't mean to be snarky, but I recommend that you visit a Mexican market, where they sell these incredible handheld citrus presses and then go to your local farmers market for the best, freshest lemons and squeeze away!
Depending on the sourness, I squeeze out a 1/8 to 1/4 cup and then add water to one cup or one-and-one-quarter and then add Sweet and Low to taste.
It only takes five minutes or less. If I am in a purging mood, add hot sauce.
IMHO, I can't find better anywhere.
Actually I don't necessarily think the sandwiches are over-rated BUT ..
The meat (when I was a child 50 plus years ago) used to be hand-cut by the server as the sandwich was being made. Slowly that concept has disappeared with the notable excpetion of the LAMB sandwich which is still hand-cut. (Ham was the last one they removed from the hand-cut option).
Thankfully, lamb is my favorite meat so I am in heaven. So if you like lamb, go for it at Phillipes. Otherwise it is the pre-sliced stuff.
