In this great country 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 the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
When I got to Sigmund Pretzelshop, I'll admit I was excited just at the idea of eating a sandwich whose roll was a pretzel. But it turns out that the Ham and Fontina with Mustard Greens Sandwich ($7) exceeded my expectations. The pretzel roll is mildly sweet and chewy, not salty or difficult to chew through. The ham is cut to a toothsome thickness but there aren't too many layers, making the meat filling substantial but not overpowering the other ingredients. The key move? The sandwich is heated before the mustard greens are added, meaning that the greens stay fresh and sharp. I liked how their slightly bitter flavor cuts through the fontina, which comes out oozing hot. A final dose of honey mustard ties the sandwich together.
