A Sandwich a Day: Melty Americano from Seb's Panini in San Diego, CA
In this great nation 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.
Seb's Panini, a sandwich vendor that sets up shop at the Little Italy Mercato on Saturdays, and the Hillcrest Farmers' Market on Sundays, offers several takes on the classic Italian sandwich. Among the savory options you've got Melty Americano, a panino composed of turkey pastrami, bacon, cheddar, tomatoes, and a dash of aioli.
The fillings are stuffed into a sliced pasta dura roll, which is brushed with butter and pressed within an inch of its life. The press gives the roll a crisp, flaky crust and brings out all the smoky, salty flavors within. It's worth grabbing while browsing the farmers' market's fruit and veggie stands when the hunger pangs inevitably strike.
