Three tasty sandwiches to try right now

Posted By on Wed, May 14, 2014 at 1:05 PM

The turkey sandwich at The General Muir

As the weather changes from crisp to muggy, my lunch cravings shift from big bowls of soup to sandwiches. I prefer sandwiches with a lot of stuff inside. Check out these sandwiches the next time your inner Dagwood cannot be silenced.

There are no boring slices of thin factory made turkey on this big boy at The General Muir. Chef Todd Ginsberg makes his turkey from scratch and slices it into thick slabs. The turkey is stacked with lemon creme fraiche, arugula, roasted portabella mushrooms, and gruyere on a house made ciabatta bread. You can get it whole or as a combo with soup.

The Daves Cosmic Original

Dave's Cosmic Subs is a staple for Emory students and a solid lunchtime stop if you are in the market for a sub. I always get The Original Dave's Cosmic Sub, a combination of pepperoni, Genoa salami, Prosciutto, lettuce, tomatoes, banana peppers, onions, fresh garlic, herbs, Provolone cheese, and Dave's Cosmic Sauce (a creamy vinaigrette). While this is no New York sub, the amount of flavors packed into the crusty bread makes this a destination worthy sandwich -
whether you get a small or a large. The large is essentially two sandwiches rolled together in butcher paper.

The fried halibut sandwich at Star Provisions

It had been a while since I ate lunch at Star Provisions, but early last week, a lunch meeting brought me back to this gourmet food mecca. They've done a lot of streamlining inside since the crowds get so big and the menu has changed a bit. This week, they had a fried fish sandwich with your choice of halibut or snapper. I went with snapper. The super fresh fish was crispy and a nice contrast to the soft bun it came on. A spicy sauce, similar to the one served on the shrimp poboy, brightened what would otherwise have been a heavy sandwich and kept it from being dry. It is worth ordering when offered since (good) fried fish sandwiches are hard to come by.

Do you have any favorite sandwiches you'd recommend? Let us know in the comments or if you are shy, email me.
