So I was just stuffing my face with a delicious combo sandwich from Portillo’s while scrolling Pinside (weekends have lost their lustre) and thought “man there’s so many people who will never know how great this sandwich is”. So what would you recommend someone to eat that’s somewhat unique and a must have from your general area? My usual response is the aforementioned Italian beef/sausage combo sandwich with hot peppers (or giardiniera) from Portillo’s (I prefer Mr Beef or Johnnies but chances are Portillo’s will be closer). It’s a ridiculous brick of thinly shaved garlicky beef surrounding a perfectly grilled link of Italian sausage with some pickled hot peppers drizzled with some au jus. When I travel I like to ask the hotel bartenders where they like to go to drink and eat and they’ve never steered me wrong. What do you say locals?
