A Sandwich a Day: Tortilla Española at Sala One Nine

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

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.

The Flatiron's Sala One Nine is known for its Spanish Tapas, but it has some enticing hot and cold Bocadillos (sandwiches) as well. We recently tried their Tortilla Española ($9), which is a traditional Spanish omelet made with pan-fried potatoes and onions.

Sala's version was served cold with a strip of roasted green pepper on top to offset the mild filing. You could call it bland, but it's at least well cooked: tender and soft, not browned or overcooked at all. The omelet is fluffy, but dense enough to keep everything in its place. Encased in a chewy and crusty baguette, this is a filling option for those seeking a straight-forward lunch.
