Ok, ok. I’ve made it clear in the past that I’m not a fan of fancy sammies.
Or the word, sammies, for that matter.
Keep it simple, don’t use unpronouncable toppings and don’t try to reinvent the damn wheel.
I guess Marcona must have done something right.
Sure, the focus is Spain (which is borderline fancy right there) and there are multiple toppings that I personally do not stock in my fridge.
But it all works! The Turkey Romesco is really, really good! It’s the giardinaire and the thick slices of turkey (instead of using lunch meat) that gives it that edge.
And the Lomo, while a bit fatty, is served on the most excellent ciabatta ever!
It is unforgivable when a sandwich shop makes bread a low priority.
Punishable with bad Yelp reviews and PETA picketing out front your establishment.
It is also quite perturbing to take a bite of your sandwich to find most of the contents sitting in your lap.
Neither of these things are the case at Marcona!
Trust me, this is rare.
This pleases me.
I am a robot.
