I made a whole batch of these delicious things the other day for a pre-GenCon party. They were quite well received. I learned how to make them by watching this YouTube video.

Jersey’s Thursdays: Avon-By-The-Sea & California Club

November 11, 2010

Hello fellow sandwich lovers! This week we went in an arguably healthier direction, opting for fish and turkey instead of beef and pork. However, the mayonnaise probably negated that jump, but hey, it’s only once a week right? Anyway, this week’s sandwiches were the Avon-By-The-Sea and the California Club.

Let’s take this from the top down and start with the Avon-By-The-Sea, a sandwich I would happily refer to as a fishwich:

Jersey’s Thursdays: Eli #10 & Red 5

November 4, 2010

It’s a number-themed sandwich week! Sherrel and I have been eying the Eli #10 for quite a while now because it’s *huge.* We were thinking of getting just one this week because of the size but since we missed a week, we decided that we had to go with two and that we’d just eat less of it. Since we were unprepared with a decision for the accompanying sandwich, we asked for advice. When Blair, the owner, was asked what would go well with the Eli #10 the response was “An antacid.” Ultimately though, he suggested the Red 5 and we’re glad that he did.

Jersey’s Thursdays: Jersey Turnpike Hot Hoagie & Pennsauken Parmigiana

October 21, 2010

Last week was a bust due to a work conflict, but congratulations to Jersey’s Café for their successful filming for Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives! I can’t wait to see their episode. :)

Anyway this week was on the house! Thanks to the owner, Blair Laing for that! Naturally, a complimentary meal comes with a catch. The catch being that he got to pick what we ate. We’re not complaining though, they were both delicious in their own ways.

Jersey’s Thursdays: Bronx Bombers & Dr. Jazz

October 7, 2010

We jumped back into the meatwich territory with both feet this week. Sherrel chose the Bronx Bombers and I went for the Dr. Jazz. This week was a huge success as I left tremendously happy and with a new favorite sandwich!

Jersey’s Thursdays: Vegetarian Reuben & Spinach Eggplant Panino

September 30, 2010

This week we decided to go vegetarian! Of course, just because it’s vegetarian doesn’t mean it’s healthy. These sandwiches are still massive and manage to pack in the calories. For our study, we chose the Vegetarian Reuben and the Spinach Eggplant Panino. (Panino is the singular of panini) Let’s get started…

Jersey’s Thursdays: Wildwood Cheesesteak & Red Sox Suck Chicken Cheesesteak

September 23, 2010

Yeah yeah, I know, I said we were going to probably do only one sandwich per week, but these week I missed breakfast so we went for two smaller ones. Not that this week’s sandwiches are small or anything, but compared to last week’s massive hoagie, most sandwiches are.

Jersey’s Thursdays: Atlantic City Expressway Hot Hoagie

September 16, 2010

Last week’s eating of two of Jersey’s largest sandwiches was a rough. I spent the rest of the day not moving around very much. Many of you know I’m on an 1,800 calorie/day diet (I’ve lost over 45 pounds!), so on Thursdays, I have to be very sparse with my other meals, if I have them at all. Because of this, we decided only to get only one sandwich this week, however, we decided to go with a big one. We chose the Atlantic City Expressway Hot Hoagie: Long name, amazing sandwich.

Atlantic City Expressway Hot Hoagie - Let me state this now, this sandwich is *massive*

Jersey’s Thursdays: Delaware Water Gap Nonie & Cheese My Baby

September 10, 2010

For the inaugural edition of Jersey’s Thursdays, Sherrel and I decided to tackle the Delware Water Gap Nonie and the Cheese My Baby. Tackling both of these sandwiches at the same time was definitely a mistake but wow, it was delicious. In the future, we’ll likely be splitting just one sandwich. Anyway, without further ado, let’s introduce today’s beasts:

Jersey’s Café & Jersey’s Thursdays

Jersey’s Café in Carmel is one of Indy’s best kept secrets. (not to be confused with Jersey Mike’s, a chain by a similar name but lesser quality) They have an absolutely exhaustive menu (seen below) with over 100 sandwiches to choose from. So far I’ve eaten there five times, getting something different each time, and I’ve yet to be unimpressed. I wholehearted recommend this place but there’s a caveat. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry. They take their time and prepare each and every sandwich with a great level of care and attention. Be prepared to wait for excellence but trust me, it’s worth it. (Calling ahead to order is allowed and encouraged)
