A Sandwich a Day: Lomo Adobado at Sala One Nine
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.
We last wrote about Sala One Nine's Tortilla Española and concluded it wasn't the most exciting sandwich on this planet. However, that is not the case with their Lomo Adobado ($10), which is one of the five hot bocadillos featured on Sala's menu.
Layered with marinated pork sirloin, piquillo peppers, and Gruyère cheese, this sandwich packs some serious flavor. The pork is tender and juicy, and the peppers, which are a variety of chilli hailing from northern Spain, bring a bit of heat. Perfectly melted cheese is creamy and nutty, and it's all pressed in a slightly crunchy baguette for crunch.
