NYC’s Best Sandwiches

Grubstreet has a list of the 101 Best Sandwiches in New York. And no surprise, many of these are pork sandwiches! There are so many in fact that I decided to choose a mere 10 from the list that I would like to try in the next year or so. From the bottom of the list up, here are my picks:
100. The Elvis – Peanut Butter & Co.
83. Ham & Cheese – Char No. 4
56. Bacon & Marmalade – Prune
53. PMB (pancetta, mango & basil) – Sullivan St. Bakery
43. Bacon, Egg & Lettuce – BKLYN Larder
39. Bacon, Egg & Cheese – Prime Meats
32. BLT – Frankie’s Sputino
26. Country Ham Biscuit – Egg
22. Grilled 3-Cheese with House-smoked Ham – The Breslin
13. Croque Monsieur – Bar Boulud
I think I’ll start with number 53! A lot of these picks are based on me already loving particular restaurants or wanting to try ones I haven’t. There is lots of porky goodness on the list besides these. What are your favorites? Any sandwiches that you think are missing? I think Bierkraft’s Serrano should have been very high on the list. And are ice cream sandwiches not considered? Because Xie Xie’s 1000 Year Old Ice Cream Sandwich would easily top my list!

2973. MANGO, BACON and STREAKY BACON SALAD

¼ cup of blanched almonds, chopped
A selection of salad greens
1 mango, peeled and diced
70 to 80 grams of feta, crumbled
4 rashers of streaky bacon
1 lemon
2 spring onions, finely sliced
Freshly ground black pepper

In a dry pan, toast the chopped almonds briefly until golden and remove from the heat. In the same pan fry the bacon rashers until crispy, drain on absorbent paper. Assemble the salad greens onto two plates, sharing the diced mango, feta and sliced spring onions between each plate. Chop or rip the warm bacon into bite sized pieces and scatter over the greens with the toasted almonds. Dress the salads with a squeeze of lemon juice and a little black pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
