There's no telling where a writer will turn for inspiration: while London's prose flowed from nature's great majesty, and Fitzgerald affectionately looked to the Ivy League, C.S. Lewis just thought about lion Jesuses. Making the sandwich his muse, some guy named AW, at BreadxBread
Penned by anonymous Friscan "AW" (and occasionally his girl buddy "JoJoJoJo"), BxB's an oft-updated blog o' sandwich reviews -- from dead-seriously informative to hilarious -- plus other bread-bounded miscellany including lyrical poetic odes to homemade sandwich action, which sounds incredibly sexy, and is. Every write-up gets detailed photos of (often half-eaten) sandos, browsable by meat/shop name; some highlights
On La Pinata's La Cubana torta: This sandwich is the kind of thing you hear about hicks making at country fairs...When this sandwich arrived, it stared deep into my soul and asked me what kind of man I was. I had no answer
On JoJoJoJo's homemade turkey burger:
two patties of dripping turkey
two pleasuring cheeses -
monterey jack slapped
above a sharp cheddar -
with rings of onion
thee wedded tastines
kiss the bride ketchup, mustard...
the honeymoon is in my mouth.
On someone stealing the Mr. Pickles sign: This is like the time hitler killed buddy holly, richie valens and the big bopper at pearl harbor on 9/11.... TIMES A MILLION
There's also a list of joints supposedly in line for reviews, which currently includes Yats, Bi-Rite, and Saigon Sandwiches, which, as everyone knows, inspired Graham Greene to pen The Quiet American.
