[quote=“trebuchet”][quote=“Fortigurn”][quote=“trebuchet”]Sandwiches with three slices of bread. A sandwich in a package that appears to be two half sandwiches, but in reality is one sandwich made with four slices of bread.
Why can’t they grasp that the outside of a sandwich should be dry? Do they really shove these four-slice things into their mouths?
I just don’t understand Taiwanese sandwiches.[/quote]
Never been to New York then?[/quote]
I don’t recall seeing corn and mayo salad being a popular sandwich filling at the Carnegie Deli. What’s your point?[/quote]
My point is that I find the average sandwich here to be pretty much like the average sandwich I found in New York - half a loaf of bread in multiple slices, packed together tightly and festooned with a few strange vegetables or bizarre fillings (like salmon and curry, or egg and cabbage, or bacon and alfalfa, or whatever it is they stuff in there).
I always considered the multiple slices of bread sandwhich thing to be a Western invention. I don’t know when it first happened, but I can remember that back in Australia the standard sandwich on a standard sandwich plate from a standard caterer was always a multi-slice job, filled with things which looked like remnants and floorsweepings.
