Surf Food Binge


After not eating much in Morocco, Christy and I desperately needed something substantial to eat. With a stroke of luck, we got just what we needed at a tiny takeout restaurant owned by a local surf couple. There was no menu, just a chalk board that said, “Sandwich 6 Euros”. I watched in amazement as the couple assembled our sandwiches during the next 10 minutes. In order, from top to bottom, each sandwich contained:

  • Buttered toast
  • Fried egg
  • Chicken breast
  • Onion
  • Tomato
  • Coleslaw
  • Buttered toast
  • Ham
  • Cheese
  • Ham
  • Onion
  • Tomato
  • Coleslaw
  • Buttered toast

The resulting monster sandwich was not much to look at, but it was soooooooo good. It was exactly what we needed to recover from days of not eating enough.

    I am all over that sandwich. Looks and sounds great. Christie, you will be happy, or not so much, that the travel channel just showed a resturant that made everything stuffed with french fries. :-)

    Bob, Closer to you are the FAT sandwiches at PJ’s on campus. I don’t know how many of them I ate in college, but I am amazed I am still alive. Here is the menu and the Yelp review.
