A Sandwich a Day: Silly Philly Portobello at Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop
In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
At the newly reopened Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop, one can only expect an enormous sandwich. Their Silly Philly Portobello (sm. $4.50/lg. $7.50) surely doesn't disappoint in size. The substantial portion of grilled portobello mushrooms are slightly under-seasoned, but the delicious mushroom flavor still comes through. Provolone cheese was a tasty choice, even if the mild cheese didn't quite bring the salty flavor we were craving. The sandwich would probably be improved by slightly more cheese, or a touch of salt on the mushrooms. But the toasted sesame semolina bread was chewy and crusty, a great vehicle for the potentially sloppy interior. A solid veggie sandwich, and a good deal for the price.
