You must be thinking, all that talk about the Primanti's Sandwich, what's in the sandwich anyways? Well, it starts off with a thick slice of Italian bread. At least an inch thick, crusty on the outside and soft and warm in the inside. Then goes the layer of meat (they also have eggs, tuna and sardines too) of your choice. On top of that goes a layer of thick hot fries followed by a generous helping of slaw. I have to point out that the slaw is unlike the regular slaw that we are used to. It not does not contain any mayo, but is made with vinegar and pepper. Crispy and fresh, almost sweet with a tinge of tangy taste. Tomatoes are places on top of that and its topped with another thick piece of Italian bread.
My favorite choice of meat is the Sweet Sausage and Cheese. Kevin loves the Cheese Steak. The Cheese Steak is dubbed the #2 Best Seller on the menu. It's actually the best selling meat in Primanti's. Can anybody guess what is the #1 best seller in Primanti's then? :P
Pittsburgh pride runs deep in that town. It starts with the Steelers and ends with sandwich. So, da next time yinz are in Picksburg, yinz hafta head dahn to Primanti's. Order a Sammitch and worsh it dohn wit an Arn. If you don't speak Pittsburghese, I just said that the next time you are in Pittsburgh, go get a Primanti's sandwich and an Iron City Beer.
