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.
Think of it as the bahn mi of the sea. Mooncake's smoked whitefish salad sandwich ($7.50) has familiar accoutrements—cilantro, jalapenos, daikon and carrots—but a far less fatty protein more typical of Jewish cuisine than Vietnamese. Stuffed with more whitefish salad than any sandwich can reasonably hold, every bite makes some squeeze out the other end. No matter: scoop it all up when you're done for meal number two. A little bit of luck might come into play with this one—sometimes you'll find too few jalapenos and sometimes you'll find a whole one, sloppily chopped—but it's satisfying regardless. Compensate for a spice-less bite with the house's signature green chili sauce, free with every dish Mooncake serves.
