#FoodieChats: Best Sandwiches for Meat Lovers

The Beef Cheek Burger - Tongue & Cheek

The Beef Cheek Burger - Tongue & Cheek

We are always down to take the yummy train to chow town. You don’t have to tell us twice.

The Emerald Journal will be sittin’ down for #FoodieChats with talented local and out-of-town experts on the art of eating.

We sat with two local hospitality and culinary gurus, Catherine Vallin and Tatiana Cardenas, who discuss the art of the sandwich.  It’s a simple item in an overcrowded world of lunch options, but if you know how to treat the sandwich right, the sandwich rewards you with a hearty, satisfied field trip for your taste buds.  Here’s what these two experts recommend if you’re craving a Miami sandwich:

The Elvis Bloomberg - Moloko

Named after two famous fellas, this sandwich swings both ways: sweet and sour. It includes bacon, banana and peanut butter on whole wheat or cinnamon swirl bread, lightly pan fried in butter and served with a sriracha maple syrup sauce. Prrr.

Turkey Avocado - Whisk

This is an oldie but a goodie.  Whisk’s Turkey Avocado Sandwich with tomato, lettuce, mayo and dijon mustard.  Add sprouts if you’re feelin’ snazzy.

Hand-Cut Pastrami- Josh’s Deli

Josh knows what’s up with his pastrami. . . order this sandwich if you’re craving some! Served on rye with mustard, pickles and slaw.

Beef Cheek Burger - Tongue & Cheek

This Beef Cheek Slider separates the men from the boys.  It’s basically heaven on a bun.  Only a certain amount are made per day.  This dream is comprised of beef cheek, cheddar pimento cheese, sweet onions and house-made brioche.
