I was in one of my favorite towns this past week: Annapolis, MD. And whenever I’m in Annapolis, I make it a point to stop by Chick & Ruth’s Delly for a sandwich and plate of fried potatoes.
There are literally dozens and dozens of sandwiches to order at Chick & Ruth’s – most of them named after politicians and their favorite sandwich. As I combed thru all of the sandwich options, I noticed that there aren’t too many sandwiches of the Turkey variety, which says a lot about our politicians, right? So right as I was about to order a Hot Dog, I noticed that they have a category of sandwiches called “Colossals”. From there I knew that I was going for it. I was going to order the biggest Turkey Sandwich I have ever had.
Being the Turkey Sandwich hot shot that I am, I ordered off of the menu and went with a Turkey/Pastrami with Swiss. Bread choice: Rye.
The amazing thing about this Turkey Sandwich is that is was just as good cold (4 hours later) as it was hot. The chees has coagulated a little and the Rye bread was a little soggy, but it was delicious in a completely different way.
And to answer the question all of you smart asses out there are asking: NO, I did not eat the whole thing. But you can expect this sandwich to be making an appearance in the Turkey Top 10.
