In this great country 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.
If, like me, you enjoy dunking your food, then the French Dip sandwich with its side of beefy jus is right up your alley. The version at Regina's Kitchen ($7.95) is a solid incarnation. The roast beef is sliced paper thin and sits atop a layer of melted, tangy provolone cheese. A few pieces of purple onion add a nice crunch, but flavor-wise the sandwich is entirely beef (which makes sense considering you're dipping a pile of roast beef in a container of beef broth).
The French Dip at Regina's is steamed, which makes the french roll incredibly soft, almost moist. In most cases a firm crust makes for better dunking, but the steamed roll stayed together after a good dip in the jus.The jus itself was just as it should be- a little salty and not too fatty. This intensely beefy sandwich may only hit one note—good thing it's the right one.
