Step up to the counter in a little place I like to call America.

The generic gyro is a favorite sandwich of mine, but a local food truck offers an improvement on the formula: the lettuce or other greens are replaced by heavily seasoned crispy shoestring potatoes. Still has the tomato and red onion for flavor and texture, though.

iced cream sandwich fair game y/n

The Raider Dr. Jones 11-07-2016 08:10 AM

ice cream sandwiches are deffo sandwiches.

the fancy deli/bakery downtown here makes cool layered ice cream sandwiches with a mix of different ice cream and sorbet flavors and stuff. the best lately has been a sch'mores ice cream sandwich.

We have a gyros place by the office that sticks fries in there, but they're a health-conscious fusion joint that uses braised meat and sweet potato oven fries. Waves of compromise emanate from it like cartoon stench.

The Raider Dr. Jones 11-07-2016 08:58 AM

man if a gyro isn't dripping with savory grease and full-fat yogurt what is even the point.

zonetrope 11-07-2016 10:23 AM

I love gyros but have only had sub-optimal ones since moving to Ann Arbor, as is the case with most foods that aren't burgers.

Dizzy 11-07-2016 11:39 AM

This place had some good sandwiches (tender and moist... with just the right level of crunch) and vomit-green vegetable drinks!

Q. Is it possible to have a good salad and/or vegetarian sandwich without cheese?

Hard mode: no cheese or meat substitutes.

Grignr 11-11-2016 07:50 AM

PB&J! That's vegetarian, right?

Lots of salads don't have cheese. Asian-style salads don't, vinaigrette doesn't have cheese.

Büge 11-11-2016 07:54 AM

So you don't mean something like an egg salad sandwich? You could try a banh mi. Not sure if the tofu in that counts as a meat "substitute" since it's not really standing in for meat...

Mr. Sensible 11-11-2016 09:44 AM

I finally tried a burger with a fried egg on it yesterday and it was quite good. I normally don't care for my eggs over-easy, but on a burger the runny yolk works for me.

Check Moroccan food for vegan salads that kick ass. IIRC they have a salad made entirely of pickled and roasted veg that'll bring you back from the dead.

I guess that actually fills my criteria too. Chip bap. \m/ That was also my go to unhealthy school dinner. Most stuff in my school was unhealthy, in retrospect...

Took a couple of cans of that home, mixed in some dill relish and some Chipoltle Mayo, put it on a couple of pieces of toasted wheat bread with some pepperjack cheese.

So good.

I also add chips to my tuna sandwich too.

MooMoo 11-12-2016 05:38 AM

USA chips or UK chips?

Good stuff. Levantine cuisine has some great ones too, like fattoush and tabbouleh. And also this, though usually I chop it in larger pieces, and use salt and olive oil in addition (verjuice is also very good). Also great if you add lettuce.

Huh. I've had this at a local restaurant as a side a bunch of times and never knew there was a particular name for it. Great stuff.

Cucumber and mayo sandwich?

Unless mayo doesn't count, in which case, whatever you use instead of mayo, I guess.

For salad, there's Caesar -- leave off the bacon, I guess. Or use fakon.

(Yeah, not playing hard mode.)

I love carrot salad, and I don't think I've ever seen it served with cheese or meat. Not sure it really counts, though.

Mightyblue 11-14-2016 09:18 AM

A buddy of mine recently revealed that he loves to fill pita pockets with whatever stir fries he manages to assemble out of his fridge. I would've given him shit for it, but it's a fucking brilliant idea.

Paul le Fou 11-15-2016 02:09 AM

So when I was a younger man I used to eat me a gyro sandwich wrap now and then and I discovered something fucking crazy. I stand on the edge of an abyss that folk such as falselogic, jbear, and LBD Nytetrain have plunged into before me, and pebbles fall as I toe the lip of loose rock.

I leap.

A beverage that goes shockingly well with a gyro, which you would never expect, is orange juice.

That's right. Gyros and orange juice.

Yes! The secret ingredient to such a thing is avocado or hummus.

An awesome no-meat vegetarian (vegan!) sandwich could be avocado or hummus (dare I suggest both?!?!), bell peppers of your choice, red onion, tomato, lettuce, olives. EV olive oil, salt, pepper, some balsamic or red wine vinegar or mustard if you like.

Then get a sandwich... They do have those in England, right? Hell, isn't that where the name comes from!?

In personal news regarding sandwich-type foods, the other day I had a cheeseburger with a fried egg (and bacon) on it. I didn't hate it, but I didn't really love it either. I didn't regret* ordering it but I don't know if I would order something like that again.

*My stomach has been kinda iffy not matter what I've been eating the last few days.

Bunk Moreland 11-16-2016 05:37 AM

I've been doing the old "make an omelette with toast, then put it between the toast as a sandwich" breakfast a lot recently. Not really healthy most of the time, yet also not too unhealthy. One omelette makes two sandwiches, and it's incredibly filling. I'm even spicing it up with some salsa (expensive here, but worth it this time) to help mix in some more flavor. The best part is you don't even have to leave it for breakfast.

The acidity... The sweetness... *touches earpiece* Otacon, are you reading this?

LBD_Nytetrayn 11-17-2016 01:53 AM

So once upon a time, there was this place I used to eat. You might have heard of it, it's called "Chick-fil-A."

Pretty good stuff, in my opinion. Nothing too fancy; their basic Chick-fil-A sandwich is just a chicken sandwich with nothing but a pickle on it (and maybe a little butter on the bun?), but I always added mayonnaise.

To me, that was always a Chick-fil-A thing: Chicken sandwich with mayo and pickles. Never thought to try it anywhere else. Usually lettuce and mayo, maybe tomato.

Then I had a Chicken Burger Buddy at A&W, which comes with -- you guessed it -- just mayo and pickles.

Since then, that's how I've been getting my chicken sandwiches from just about anywhere. McDonald's Junior Chicken? Hold the lettuce, add pickle. Subway crispy chicken? Just mayo and pickles, please.

I'm surprised how well that combination works outside of Chick-fil-A. It's been like a revelation of sorts. Might do some of my own at home as well, provided I can find a good pickle I like at the store.

Mightyblue 11-17-2016 07:10 AM

You can make your own chick-fil-a fried chicken, I think the only major thing is that they brine their chicken in pickle juice before breading and frying.

They pressure fry as well, which requires specialized hardware 99% of kitchens don't have. You can get pretty danged close to a CFA sandwich, but it will usually be drier.
