I don't think I've appropriately recognized my sandwich obsession in my previous posts. I apologize, reader. My name is Laura and I'm a sammie-aholic (among other things). Like any other human, I have set some goals for myself that go beyond satisfying my basic needs and instinctual drives (sleep, eat, drink, the horizontal tango, safety, and soup dumplings). I have set myself on a quest to find the perfect sandwich. Now, don't get me wrong, I have had some beautiful, satiating sandwiches before, but none has been "THE" sandwich. With that said, the This Way and That Way sandwiches at This Little Piggy Ate Roast Beef come pretty close to perfection. This Little Piggy is open to 4am and makes for a wonderful late-night "snack".
THIS WAY: Hot roast beef, Cheez Whiz and au jus on a roll
Why care? The This Way visits the classic hot open roast beef sandwich and reconstructs it into a sophisticated mess of palatable textures and flavors.
THAT WAY: Hot roast beef, mozzarella, onions and gravy on a hero
Why care? The That Way is substantially larger than the This Way and can definitely be shared by two people -- like an extremely messy Lady and the Tramp. The gravy on the That Way sinks into the bread, complementing the textures of the beef-cheese-onion concoction. More googey and messy, but oh so good.
