2nd BATXILLERAT - Choose a sandwich

Photo from Ladymadriz
If you ever go to Madrid, don't ever miss a delicious Bocata de Calamares. But, what if you go to the USA? Have a look at the Lonely Planet website and read the article A field guide to 20 great regional sandwiches of the USA and post a comment.
Choose one and say why you think it's the best one, maybe you like the ingredients, or maybe you are interested in the region where the sandwhich can be found. Then say which one you would never give a chance.

  1. All of these sandwiches look very nice, but I love onions, and I love beef too, so I think number 11, Italian Beef, is made for me.
    I can't stand fish or shellfish, that's the reason I would never ask for number 13, Lobster Roll, which is made of lobster, and I hate it.

  2. I really like all these sandwiches, they look so good and I think all of them are tasty, but the sandwiches I love the most are number 3, 5, 12, 18, 20 and specially the number 11, Italian Beef, because I really love the onions and the pepper combined with beef.
    The worst sandwiches for me are the number 13 (I really hate lobster) and 16 (It's expensive and I don't like the kind of bread it is made of)

  3. I think I would take the sandwich number 17, the Pit Beef. The name called my attention and I think it's important. Then I choose it because I REALLY like the barbecue, and I also like the beef. So if we put them together we have the perfect combination! It really seems to be such a tasty sandwich...
    In the other way, I really agree with Guillem and Sergi. I would not either have the lobster's one.

  4. First, I would taste the number 11 because I really like the beef and I love the onions. The Italian Beef it's a great sandwich to prepare if you go one day at the mountain, beach or somewhere, in my opinion it's the perfect sandwich.
    In the second place, I would taste the number 5, Cuban sandwich, because I love the cheese too.
    One sandwich that I never will taste it's the number 14, I really hate tomato and I haven't ate tomato since 10 years.

  5. Firstly, I have to say that I really like all the sandwiches of the website. All of them look very good, and it's hard to say which one I like the most. However, there are some sandwiches that I specially like, more than the rest. I have to choose only one sandwich as my favourite, so I read all the explanations about every sandwich, I saw the photographies and I began to rule out some of them, until I had only three; my three favourite sandwiches.
    My first favourite sandwich is "Beef on Weck". I like spicy and salty flavours, and it looks very good. I also like the type of bread with which the sandwich is made of.
    The second one is the "Lobster Roll". I like lobster, but I've never tried lobster inside of a sandwich. Anyways, I'm sure it would be delicious.
    And the third one in my list is the "Po'boy" sandwich. The roasted prawns called my attention, and the rest of its ingredients are very tasty and healthy: a french-style baguette, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.
    Nevertheless, I have to choose only one sandwich, and I choose as my favourite one the following sandwich: Beef on Weck. When I saw the Beef on Weck's picture, I unconsciously liked it, and I knew that I was going to choose it.
    With regard to the one that I don't like, or, at least, I don't like as much as the rest, I have chosen the "Breaded Tenderloin". Food is not just a way to calm down our stomach when we are hungry; it also have to be pleasant to our eyes and presented in the plate in a correct way. This sandwich is out of proportion and, besides, the ingredients are very common, it's just a piece of a pounded pork and a piece of bread. However, if this sandwich has got so many followers, there is no doubt that it tastes very good.

    1. Yes, Jesús, you're right. Food is not just "calming down your stomach". It must be a pleasure for the other senses too: smell it, touch it, see it, taste it and even hear it when you bite it. ENJOY IT!

  6. If I just have to choose one of this sandwiches I would choose the sandwich number 17 becouse it looks like simply and tasty but also looks very small so I would eat more than one of these sandwich becouse I eat too much!

    Generally, I really like all these sandwiches, I think that almost all the sandwiches are good, but if I could choose the best sandwich for me will be "Italian Beef". The sandwich number 11 has sauteed peppers and onions, and for that, I like it.
    I can't stand shellfish or fish, so I would never take number 13. What's more, I would never take number 15, Muffuletta, because it has salami, and I hate it!

  8. If I just have to choose only one sandwiches I prefer the number 12 ,Jersey Breakfast,is very simple but I love pig meat, egg and cheese.
    When I saw the Jersey Breakfast, I need eat because I think it's very tastes.
    I never eat the number 13 because is made of lobster and I hate all fish sandwiches

  9. Hmmm. There's a lot of you who do not like lobster. I can't believe it! It must be that you have never given it a chance!
    By the way, lobsters are not fish. What are they? C'mon biologists, say something!!

  10. I would like to taste the number 9, horseshoe, but I think that I don’t eat it whole. The number 17 (Pit beef) seems tasty but I prefer the Jersey breakfast, because I like the eggs and cheese, and for me it’s the best. I would taste the Italian beef if it hadn’t peppers, because I don’t like too much the spicy food.
    I’m surprised by breaded tenderloin, it’s seems bland and it’s too big and I never finished it, but I agree with Jordi that the worst sandwich for me is Muffuletta, because I hate salami too.

  11. I think the best sandwich for me is the Number 5, called Cuban. I love cheese since I was a child, especially aged cheese and melted cheese, so the combination of cheese and ham I think it's a divine combo for the senses. And I probably remove the pickles if they're too big. But for the perfect sandwich, I would add spicy sauce, like a little bit of tabasco, because It makes a strong taste.
    The one who I never choose would be the Italian Beef, because I hate onion, and it the photo it seems like this is the one who have the most!

  12. In my opinion all the sandwiches seems really tasty but most of them are also high in calories.
    If I have to choose one of them my favorite is the Cuban sandwich (n. 5) because I like the ingredients and in the picture it looks very good and if one day I’m going to Miami, for example, maybe I’ll eat one for lunch.
    Apart of this I like the Jersey breakfast (n. 12). It seems very tasty because I like the fried eggs.
    The Breaded Tenderloin (n. 3) is delicious but exaggerated at the same time so it’s too big for me.
    I don’t like the Italian Beef (n. 11) because it has too much onion in my opinion and I don’t like peppers.

  13. In my opinion all sandwich have a good aparance but I will taste the number 12: Jersey Breakfast because I like all the ingredients especially cheese. I think that have a good breakfast is very important and with that sandwich you can do it. I also taste the number 2: BLTA because I want travel to California. However I won’t eat number 15: Muffuleta because I don’t like the salami.

  14. If I had to choose between one of these sandwiches I would choose the number 2, called BLTA, because I think that it's very simple but really tasty.
    I didn't know that in California had included the avocado in this classical sandwich and I thing this is a great idea because add a different flavour in a sandwich that you can eat very often. However I never will choose number 13, called Lobster Roll, because I don't like its appearance and I don't know really of what is it doing.

    1. Yes, Mireia, You chose a nice sandwich; however, you should try "lobster" it's really delicious, the rest of ingredients for this sandwich are in the article. Did you read it?

  15. In my opinion all the dishes have a beautiful presentation but I think that the best sandwich for me is the number 5, called Cuban. I love this sandwich because it contains cheese and jam and i like this combination of ingredients.
    Another sandwich that I would taste for its apparence is the number 12, called Jersey breakfast, because I like it's ingredients for example the eggs and cheese, like I sad before.
    The one who I never choose it's the number 11, called Italian Beef, because I hate onions and peppers. Peppers maybe are spicy and I don’t like the spicy food because I feel bad when I eat it.

  17. Firstly, I have to say that I read the article when I was hungry, so I would have eaten almost them all at that moment. But if I have to choose just some sandwiches, I'd like to taste the Italian Beef at most, because I really like onions and peppers, and the beef looks delicious. Another sandwich that made my feel even hungrier is the Jersey sandwich. The combination of pork, cheese and egg is explosive, I think it must be really tasty. Same for the horseshoe, it has to be a bomb for the health if someone ate it very often, but I wouldn't deny to taste it once.
    One of the last sadwiches in the guide called the Spiedie should be tasty, I sometimes eat spit-grilled meat and I like it.
    Well, I would eat many others, but I'd never give a chance to the Lobster Roll and the Po'boy. It seems cool and fine, but I can't with shellfish (and I have tasted it). I don't think I'd like Muffuletta, I like italian cold meat just in pizzas.
    For the rest, I'd try to find a recipe and prepare them, even if it's a sacrilege.

  18. I really like almost all sandwich, but I think the best sandwich is "Italian Beef", because I love onions and beef, I'm thinking of preparing it at home, another sandwich that I love is "Cuban".
    I don't like very much the number 9 "Horseshoe", because many chips.

  19. First of all, say that all sandwiches that are in the list I like a lot and more after seeing the photos. So it was difficult to have to choose one.
    But in my opinion, probably the best sandwich of all I can see in that list is the number 11. I love beef and I think the onions and peppers can make this sandwich more tasty.
    And finally, I think the problem with these sandwiches is that they shouldn't be very good for health because they have a lot of calories

  20. I think that all sandwiches have similar ingredients, and I don't like any sandwiches because this sandwiches have a lot of meat, tomatoes and onions, and I hate it. But I supose that I prefer the sandwich 13, because have shellfish, and I like shellfish, but I don't know if shallfish with bread in sandwich are good. I prefer a sandwich vegetal or a sandwich with ham iberico tipical Spanish!

  21. I have chosed Horseshe because I like potatoes with a type of meat. I like the omelet of potatoes, the fries with ketchup and mayonnaise. This sandwich looks tasty and I would eat too fast. But the sandwich that I don’t like with difference is Beefonwelk, because it doesn’t look tasty, the meat is raw, I don’t lke the bread is and the ingredients.

  22. Firstly I have to say that I don't like the most of the sandwiches that appears in the list. If I have to choose one, I think that I will choose the number 17, called Pit beef. The reason why I choose it is because I don’t like the sandwiches that are full of food and you can’t eat. Other reason is because I like the barbecue brisket. I hate the number 11, Italian Beef, because I don’t like onions and peppers.

  23. If I had to choose between one of these nice sandwiches it will be so hard; they all looks very temptimg! But maybe I would agree with Guillem choosing number 11, the best one which's called Italian Beef. In my opinion it looks really tasty with all these beef and the wet onion dipped in juices, I think I will be able to eat it at any time.
    I also have to say that I haven't had dinner yet, so I'm very hungry. But I'm sure I wouldn't choose the sandwich number 5, Cuban. Firstly because I don't like his ingrdients (speciall mustard) and also because I find his aspect a little suspicious... But hey, do not panic please! It's only my opinion.

  24. I love sandwiches. I think the sandwiches are the easiest food to make. If I have to choose one from the list I would choose the number 12, Jersey Breakfast. I chose the number 12 because I like their ingredients, especially eggs and cheese.

  25. All of these sandwiches seem to be delicious, but in my point of view I would prefer to choose sandwich number 2, the BLTA because it is the healthiest. It is composed by classic bacon, lettuce and tomato and avocado too. It seems to be very tasty and also because of its appearance very appetizing. I don’t like fatty and spicy ingredients, that is why this sandwich is my favorite sandwich. I wish I had a sandwich like this one in my fridge every day for the morning meal. Moreover, I’m interested in the region where the sandwich can be found, in California. I really like that area, I think it’s a beautiful place to visit.

  26. I think that I will choose the number 16, because I like coleslaw and Russian dressing and I would love to try it sometime. But there are also sandwiches wich my attention for example the number 2, the sandwich does look good, and the ingredients of the sandwich I love it.

  27. The sandwiches are delicious I think but i prefer the number 2.I think that when you eat you are happy,when you go to a very good restaurant then you are very happy,eat is one of the best things that people can do. Sometimes you can eat fast food but i think that health is very important and sometimes you must be carefould with the food that you eat.For this reason i choose the sandwich number 2,because i think that you can have a good food and care your health at the same time.

  28. After having read this article, I have to admit that I am a little bit hungry.
    There are several sandwiches in the article that seem to be very tasteful, but the one I like the most is the number fifteen: the Muffuletta.
    There are mainly three reasons why I have chosen this sandwich: its appearance, its ingredients and its origin.
    Having a look to its appearance, this sandwich seems to be delicious, and also very clean, I hate sandwiches full of dripping sauce.
    Regarding its ingredients, I like all of them: focaccia, salami, ham, cheese, olive and vegetable salad. I think that it can be considered a perfect combination of food components.
    Finally, the origin of this sandwich is also a key factor to select it as my preferred one, “I love Italy”.
    On the other hand if I have to select one sandwich of the list that I would never give a chance, this one would be the number twelve: Jersey Breakfast. As I already said, I hate dripping sandwiches, and this is just what we see in the photo. In addition to that, pork meat, the main ingredient of this sandwich, is not my preferred meat.

  29. In my opinion all this sandwich has a good look. But if I have to choose one I will pick up number 5 (Cuban), because I like all the ingredients, in particular Swiss cheese. I think of the ingredients make a good combination.
    On the other hand, I can’t stand the mayonnaise; therefore I wouldn't eat number 13(Lobster Roll) and 20(St Paul).

  30. Without hesitation I'll take the number 2, which is native to BLTA California but now Commonly found in other parts of the U.S..
    For sandwich I eat vegetables, are lighter and although people think are not real good, and in this case the avocado should give a nice touch.
    The others seem very loaded they put too much and are very heavy.
    I think tonight proves to cook a ''BLTA'' maybe taste good... So I hope ...

  31. MMM...I think all of them sounds delicious, I would like to tast all of them. Anyway, I have a favourite one, the sandwich called Cuban. I love it because it mixts two things I really like, mustard and Swiss cheese. Futhermore, I`ve never tasted Cuban bread and I would like to.
    To sum up, I want to say to Andrea Contreras that she have to be more opened-minded and give a chance to this amazing sandwiches.

  32. The sandwich that I like the most of the top 20 is the number five, the Cuban, because I really love roast pork, ham and Swiss cheese. Moreover, it looks so good and it seems that after eat it, you won’t have to eat for hours because it gets you a lot of energy. Furthermore, I like the place where I could eat it and I think that if I visit Miami I’ll taste it.
    The sandwich that I’ll never eat is the number five, the Horseshoe, because it looks like a sandwich of a dirty bar that is in the middle of the road. In addition, I don’t like it because you can’t pick it easily, and after to eat it I think that you’ll have more sauce in your shirt than in the stomach.

  35. If a day I'd have a table in front of me with these twenty sandwiches, I'll taste all of them, but probably would have more of a sandwich that wouldn't like me. After taking a look at the ingredients of each sandwich, I'm going to tell you three sandwiches that I liked most.

    The Cuban (nº 5), because I love all the ingredients it has: mustard, roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese and pickles. Just listing them they do my mouth water.
    Another that I like is the Denver (nº 6), because it is an omelette with ham, peppers, onion and egg. It must have an interesting presentation because there is on a list of "sandwiches", not on a list of omelettes.
    And the third is one that looks simple and it has got similar ingredients to the previously mentioned omelette, his name is Italian Beef.

    And now I'm going to dinner because, I have hunger!

  36. Certainly the number 11, I love meat. Although, there are others that could be very good. But really what struck me most is the number 3, the question is: Why has the bread? And the funny thing is that the guy has no cutlery to eat it, try to imagine the guy trying to eat it haha, well Americans ...

  37. I think I would take the sandwich number 12, the Jersey Breakfast. I would choose this sandwich because I love eggs and cheese, this ingredients are very delicious.
    I will try to make Jersey Breakfast at home.
    The sandwich that I wouldn't take is the sandwich 11, the Italian Beef. I wouldn't choose this sandwich because I hate spicy giardiniera and sweet peppers, in my opinion are very disgusting.

  38. It's difficult to choose one of all these sandwiches, but If i had to pick one I would choose the number five, the Cuban sandwich which is make in Florida.
    In part, I choose this sandwich because Florida is a good place to go in holidays and in the future I would travel there. Also, I chose the cuban for it's ingredients like ham, roast pork, swiss cheese and specially this kind of bread, I love toast bread! although i wouldn't put the salami into the sandwich, in my opinion it could damage its flavour.

  39. I choose the "New Jesrey Sleppy". I like this sandwich for his ingredients and because it is very lovely sandwich. The sandwich that I don't like is the Pork roll, when I see this sandwich I think in a fat american who eating in typical roadside restaurant.
