Number One Food Item

Sandwiches aren’t just for lunch anymore. The Chicago Tribune reports that sandwiches are the number one food item in America, now a $121 billion market!

I hardly touch the burgers from McDonald’s, Burger King, or Wendy’s, but must admit I’m a sucker for some of their breakfast sandwiches. I also catch myself at Potbelly’s and Panera Bread once a week around lunchtime when I’m not packing a brown bag.

Any great sandwich places near your office or neighborhood that we should be visiting?

    I highly recommend Patty Burger at Adams/Michigan for burger lovers –

    Costello’s (2015 W Roscoe & 4647 N Lincoln) does a great baked sandwich and their sides are super-hearty (mashed potatoes, mac-and-cheese, pasta).

    The jibarito sandwich at Rudy’s Taste (1024 N Ashland) — which uses flattened, fried plantains instead of bread — is one of my favorite meals in the world.
