I thought that “The Convertible” sandwich was a one of a kind. Neigh to that friends. Little did I know, just 72 hours later that particular sandwich would be outdone. I’m now in Austria where the locals enjoy their food RICH. Heavenly delicious creamy sauces: check. Fried… err… well fried everything: check. And lots of beer: check. Yup, they enjoy the good food just as much as I like to eat it!

If the last sammy was dubbed “The Convertible,” this one is the “Car Wreck.” Now, I will point out that this wasn’t my order for lunch, but the fellow sitting next to me. It’s basically the same layout as The Convertible – your basic club sandwich, except instead of a fried egg beneath a retractable carbohydrate roof, this is a bacony-delicious mess draped artistically atop the club sandwich! In a word: wow!bacon-sammy

    Treavis at Fig would fix a steak-frites with an egg hanging like a beret over the top and pour himself a Duvel. The sandwitch pic makes me want to go order one ASAP.
