A spiritual awakening of a sammy truck

Prepare to follow the Eight-Stomach-Fold Path at Sandwich Buddha, a bright orange truck of nirvana-inducing eats that sports a monk with a sammy smushed between his praying hands, and got its name from one of the owners' friend's favorite things to say before eating a meal: "good food, good karma".

Those sams get wrapped in fresh bread from beloved ATL bakery Alon's: multigrain for roast beef w/ pickled onions and smoked ham/ gouda/ cheddar/ Dijon, while bacon-layered tomato jam/ pimento and grilled havarti/ sharp cheddar both come on Country French -- which is, predictably, very soft.

For now the truck'll be at the Wed/ Thurs/ Fri Atlanta Street Food Coalition events, and hanging out from midday to late-night at Buddy's in the Highlands. But by late Spring, its brick & mortar kitchen base will become a full-fledged shop, at which they'll also serve ice cream sammies, and even deliver them to the immediate area in a similarly designed Chevy Astro, which Nirvana probably also rode around eating sandwiches in at some point in their career.
