I was in one of my favorite towns this past week: Annapolis, MD. And whenever I’m in Annapolis, I make it a point to stop by Chick & Ruth’s Delly for a sandwich and plate of fried potatoes.
There are literally dozens and dozens of sandwiches to order at Chick & Ruth’s – most of them named after politicians and their favorite sandwich. As I combed thru all of the sandwich options, I noticed that there aren’t too many sandwiches of the Turkey variety, which says a lot about our politicians, right? So right as I was about to order a Hot Dog, I noticed that they have a category of sandwiches called “Colossals”. From there I knew that I was going for it. I was going to order the biggest Turkey Sandwich I have ever had.
Being the Turkey Sandwich hot shot that I am, I ordered off of the menu and went with a Turkey/Pastrami with Swiss. Bread choice: Rye.
The amazing thing about this Turkey Sandwich is that is was just as good cold (4 hours later) as it was hot. The chees has coagulated a little and the Rye bread was a little soggy, but it was delicious in a completely different way.
And to answer the question all of you smart asses out there are asking: NO, I did not eat the whole thing. But you can expect this sandwich to be making an appearance in the Turkey Top 10.
From time to time, we get some rather rude messages here at Turkey Sandwich HQ. Things like:
“Yo fat ass, why don’t you mix in a salad once in a while?”
“Hey Fat Sajak, give the Turkey Sandwiches a rest and try some celery sticks!”
Ok, listen here smart asses:
- I DO order salads occasionally.
- I’m a big fan of salads.
- I absolutely love Taco Salads and I love me a good Chicken Caesar on a pretty frequent basis.
- All of you that have made comments like this are a bunch of assholes.
I apologize to all of the innocent bystanders that had to be exposed to this. Like most things, leave it to a few rotten apples to ruin it for the rest of us. I promise they will not ruin the fun we’re having here at the Turkey Sandwich Report.
I actually ordered a side salad with my Turkey Cuban Sandwich today at Heroes Pub in Annapolis, MD. The Turkey Cuban was awesome (especially when I threw a little Old Bay seasoning on there) and the side salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette was the perfect compliment. Throw in a beer and I had myself one hell of a lunch.
I had the distinct pleasure of dining at a national treasure today: Chick and Ruth’s in Annapolis, MD.
Yes, the chocolate chip waffles looked scrumptious. Yes, the sausage looked savory. And yes the pancakes looked fantastic.
But I did my Turkey Sandwich Report duty, and ordered a Turkey Sandwich, the Turkey Club actually.
It may not look like much, but it was good. No messing around. Just a straight Turkey Sandwich on toasted wheat bread.
Now you might have noticed those potatoes on the side. Let me tell you something about those potatoes: They were fucking amazing. I could have eaten a 55 lb drum of those.
If you’re ever in Annapolis, make a special effort to stop by Chick and Ruth’s. The owner might even come by and do stupid magic trick for you. And tell ’em Lutz sent you.
