- Philly steak sandwich. I am not a huge fan of cheese but pizza sauce and onions are musts (folks were pushing roast pork sandwiches the last time I was in Philly but I was underwhelmed).
- Bagel and lox. No Montreal bagels. No capers. Just a good bagel, cream cheese, some red onionand a heap of lox.
- Gyro--can be beef, lamb, pork souvlaki, whatever.
- Shwarma, which is gyro but with less greek, more mideastern stuff.
- Lobster roll, a very rare treat, but can easily be done wrong.
- Fried chicken sandwich
- Po boy.
- Bacon, egg and cheese but on a biscuit or croissant, not on a roll.
- Pulled Pork
- Hoagie (what others would call an italian sub)
- Meatball sub
- Grilled cheese (I prefer quesadillas)
- Tuna sandwich
- Ham sandwich
- PB (not a huge fan of J)
- Banh Mi

Thanks to a fb post by Ben Denison, I ran across this ranking of favorite sandwiches. Since I am way behind on blogging this year, I thought I would come up with my own list. The assumption here is that each one is made as well as possible, i.e., steak sandwich is made in Philly. Obviously, this is an idiosyncratic list--my preferences are my preferences. But they are also the right way to think about this stuff.
