There is nothing more satisfying, in a food way, than a good sandwich (and there is nothing more satisfying, in a slang way, than calling a sandwich a sando [props, Jill!]). Let's consider the sando for a moment. It has every food group in one place. You can eat it with your hands. You can eat it with one hand. It's basically a flawless food item. It's true: sandos can't be beat no matter how you slice them (heh).

My current favorite is just a little mini walk from the Merc offices at Black Sheep Bakery (523 NE 19th). They call their sandos "sammies" (inferior slang), but I'll forgive them for it because they are the yum. You should go there and get a BBQ tofu sando on Dave's Killer Bread with veganaise, some kind of cheese product (cheddar or provolone, probably), homemade pickle slices, roasted peppers, and shredded carrots. You will die from it being so good, I swear.

That is all I have for you right now in sando news. Do you have any hot sando tips for me? Post 'em in the comments.
