The Best Sandwiches in Orlando

From Maine to Mexico, the Windy City to the Texas Badlands, one thing we all have in common is the sandwich. Fanatical fans of food stuffed into bread can spend hours debating the merits of Reuben over Cuban and sub vs. club. And I can hear the grumbling from the burgermeisters and frankfanatics in the audience—sorry, as far as I’m concerned they ain’t sandwiches. Having spent weeks sampling sandwiches from the sublime to the truly inedible, I can recommend the following six as the best of what Orlando has to offer.

Mi Tomatina’s paella contradicts Americans’ notions about rice stuck to the bottom of the pot.
