Actually there are eight sandwiches I couldn't stop eating
Seems like Poppy puts equal effort into creating interesting and creative offerings across their entire menu. This is especially appreciated as most places treat vegetarians as an afterthought.
Btw, "Punim" means face, as in when the Jewish Bubbe squeezes the grandchild's cheeks together and exclaims, "Look at this adorable punim." I might say the same for the sandwich!
Ok, but, I think a macaron is definitely a sandwich. Like an Oreo is a sandwich. I'm just glad you weren't talking about savory macarons.
Oh, a sandwich list might be my favorite W&W so far. And while I agree those prices at Ida are insane, the use of the old-school letterboard for a menu negates the insanity.
Well, I am very late to the sandwich party, but I did want to say how delicious these sound—especially the haloumi. I just discovered haloumi this summer in England. After two weeks of whatever, chips, and peas, I plumped for a haloumi portobello sandwich. Boy was it a tasty thrill for those oil-saturated taste buds. Haloumi for the win! Happy Thanksgiving WWers!
I’ve managed to try every sandwich on this list (plus the bonus bagel) except the Punim which is currently unavailable. Thanks for posting this - I’d almost certainly never have found the Hindquarter or Al Ducci’s (the latter… WOW) without it. With regards to CCC I tend to go for the fried chicken banh mi rather than the Buffalo - but you can’t go wrong there really.
The only major omission that comes to mind is Martone’s Market in Essex Junction - it’s a design your own deli type setup so I don’t have a specific sandwich to recommend, but I always go there if I’m taking a train (it’s right next door) and it’s delicious.
Definitely putting both of those buffalo chicken sandwiches on the list for the next visit to VT. If you find an equally deliciously & messy/chunky with blue cheese option in Denver, please blog/tweet/IG immediately!!
These sandwiches sound completely amazing! I've never been to Vermont and the sandwich envy is now strong. I know you've played STL often, did you happen to have a St. Paul sandwich while in that area? They're definitely weird and can occasionally be wonderful. Also, in my current area the big thing is the Horseshoe (which is argued to be an open-face sandwich)...it has it's own Wikipedia page and there's a lot of in-fighting about who invented it and the proper way to make the sauce. PS - love the song attached to each newsletter :)
Well I've lived one town over from The Hindquarter for two years now and never knew about it, so I'm almost ashamed but mostly excited to go try a sammich before my next swim!
My husband is planning to hike the Long Trail in the fall and so I'll be staying in random B&B's and Campgrounds in VT for a month as his "resupply coordinator", and these lists are basically comprising my travel guide. Cant wait to check out all the weirdness! Theres some real goodness on this list (looking at you Rough Francis!!),
I would have killed for this list while we were in Burlington for the concert. Amazeballs concert which was thoroughly enjoyed by the entire family! I also lean towards the buffalo chicken. Yum, yum, yum
