Is there anything more comforting than biting into a delicious sandwich? If you’re a fan of the handhelds, then you’re in luck! We’ve roundup six great sandwiches around town for you to try that are far from ordinary. From layers of mac and cheese to donuts, bahn mi to vegetarian classics, these are a few of St. Augustine’s outstanding sandwiches.
The Monte Cristo
Best for being known where the locals eat, if you’re craving a hearty sandwich, you’ll have to check out The Monte Cristo at Metro Diner. Not just your average ham and cheese, this bad boy begins with two slices of sourdough and piles them high with ham, turkey, cheddar and American cheese before deep frying it. But it doesn’t stop there! Once out, it is topped with powdered sugar and served with raspberry preserves. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savory that will be sure to leave you feeling satisfied.
The Mac Daddy
Grilled Cheese Gallery
If you thought sandwich toppings were limited to cheese, meats, and veggies, then the Grilled Cheese Gallery is here to prove you wrong. As if grilled cheese wasn’t
The Spare Tire
Obi’s Fillin’ Station
Have you ever been eating a delicious cheeseburger and thought, this would be great with some donuts? Well if so, Obi’s has got you covered! The Spare Tire burger that they offer takes all the greatness of a classic cheeseburger and puts it between two Krispy Kreme glazed donuts.
Banh Mi Sandwich
Streaming The Bullet
While many of us know a banh mi sandwich for being piled high with grilled meats and veggies, this food truck decided to take a modern twist on this sandwich fairytale. Appealing to the vegetarians of St. Augustine, Streaming The Bullet’s banh mi has all the flavor you could ask for, but rather than pork belly, you’ll bite into a meaty portabello mushroom instead. Served on a toasted baguette with house-pickled veggies, cilantro, and spicy aioli, this is one version of a classic you won’t regret!
The Vegetarian Reuben
Another win for the vegetarians! This not-so-ordinary Reuben takes a southern twist by subbing out corned beef for “corned beets,” and topping it with spicy datil sauerkraut, swiss cheese and Russian dressing; all served on marble rye. Even if you’re not vegetarian, you’ll want to try this sandwich on for size.
Jalapeño Popper Burger
Not your average burger at all, this beef patty is stuffed with not just one cheese, but two! Both cream cheese and cheddar fill this burger alongside fresh jalapeños. Then breaded, and deep-fried, this burger is a legitimate jalapeño popper! Be sure to bring your appetite with you to try because you’re going to need it.
