best place to get a sandwich for the road
When we leave NO (driving back to Tallahassee) we would like to take some sandwiches with us on the road rather than pulling into a fast food place on the Interstate. They can't have gravy, sauces (soggy rolls) or need to be warm like fried shrimp because we won't be eating them right away and need something that the driver can eat without problem. Any suggestions on where we could pick them up? We are staying in the CBD. Thanks
muffulettas always travel well - not sure what would be most convenient to your trip out
central grocery, nor joe's in metarie, liuzza's frenchuletta are my fav. renditions
My first thought is muffalettas from NorJoe, but that's not on your way. You could get a muff in the Quarter at Central Grocery or Napoleon House, but another thought would be to get bahn mis ( is that the appropriate plural for bahn mi??) at Dong Phuong in New Orleans East. It's not far from I-10. Another great sandwich on your way is the Cochon de Lait at Walker's Barbecue, also in New Orleans East not far off I-10, but they aren't open every day, and do run out, so call ahead.

All of the above suggestions are good, but I recommend banh mi most highly. They travel really well. I recommend the roasted pork ones. Muffs travel well too but are harder to eat while driving--and they taste better the next day.
