Yep. Grinders.

Not exactly haute cuisine.
I don't like fluff, but my sister would take a Fluffernutter to school every single day when we were kids. Her Fluffernutters would include grape jelly -- basically a PB&J with fluff.

This list got it right for RI with the hot wieners, but a strong argument could be made for Italian grinders, meatball grinders, or lobster rolls. The lobster rolls here are either with butter (Connecticut style) or with mayo (Maine style).

In several areas of RI (and southeastern MA), the signature sandwich is definitely Chourico & Peppers.

And while currently outdated, for many decades the signature sandwich in Fall River, MA was the Chow Mein Sandwich.

Hoo Mee chow mein noodles from Fall River in a hamburger bun with that nasty corn starch thickened MSG sauce with boiled chicken, celery, and bean sprouts in it. The bad Chinese place 1/2 mile from my summer house has it. No thanks. Yep. That’s something you won’t find anywhere else in the country. The local grocery stores carry those Hoo Mee chow mein noodles next to La Choy canned chicken chow mein. I’m wondering if people make those sandwiches at home? I had a bowl of them last night at the Chinese place as a garnish for hot & sour soup. They make a good bar crunchy.

It’s not a sandwich but linguica & cheese roll is really common in New Bedford. Thin sliced mild linguica and cheese baked into a Portuguese roll. The local version of a hot pocket.

I use spicy linguica and onion/garlic/peppers as the base for my shrimp Mozambique. The local Portuguese deli where I source my linguica makes their own. They say the only difference between their spicy linguica vs chourico is pork sausage case vs beef sausage case. They sell both mild and spicy chourico. Chourico & peppers on a Portuguese roll sounds really good. Grilled linguica on a Portuguese roll with mustard is a pretty common back yard bbq food. The peppers makes me think of the food carts outside Fenway Park with Italian sausage and pepper sandwiches.

You can get chow mein sandwiches (though they call them “chop suey sandwiches”) in season in Salem, MA at Salem Willows. In fact, two places sell them, Salem Lowe and Genghis China. I’ve tried them at both and prefer the former. When you order them, they offer it either in a styrofoam clamshell container or wrapped in wax paper. I wisely chose the former — no idea how anyone can eat these gooey things half-wrapped in wax paper.

I might go with a Taylor Ham, egg, and cheese on a Hard 'Kaiser' Roll.


Or, maybe a 'ripper' from here: http://www.ruttshut.com/

According to Southern Living - it's a tie between the Cuban Sandwich and a Fried Grouper Sandwich.

I live in SE Florida, so I love them both. But I believe that I actually make a better Cuban sandwich and better black beans than I've had on Calle Ocho in Miami!

Denver omelette? Sure, that's a thing. But the Denver sandwich? Not a thing.

Care to share some secrets? I used to work a few doors away from a Cuban grandmother's luncheonette and I lived (happily!) on Cuban sandwiches!

One thing I do when I make them, is grate a fresh garlic clove on a fine MicroPlane, mix it with a little olive oil and then with the yellow mustard I use on the sandwich.

I can't disagree with the pork roll, egg, and cheese, but it's usually a breakfast sandwich.

I've never been to Rutt's Hut, but I did once go to Hot Dog Johnny's.

I just went with that because Taylor Ham is such a Jersey thing, although I can get it here in coastal NC.

I used to do a lot of motorcycling around NJ and PA, we didn't consider it officially summer until the first ride to Hot Dog Johnny's, hard to pass up a ride to scenic Buttzville. It wasn't a great ride to Rutt's (less than 10 miles from my house) but I liked the dogs more.
