I was headed out to Evanston on Oakton around lunchtime. There was a place I used to get very good shoarma sandwiches at that was on Oakton in Skokie. Well Shoarma King is no longer but The Sandwich Club has taken its place.
More sterile than its predecessor, I was thinking twice about ordering until the skirt steak sandwich called out to me.
A very good piece of marinated (primarily teriyaki Im guessing) skirt steak, grilled, then put on a hoagie style bun with lettuce, mayo, tomato and lots of dense sweet sautéed onions and I believe poblano peppers. Darn if this didnt more than hit the spot, an EXCELLENT sandwich, I forgot all about my shoarma.
While The Sandwich Club did not do this, the old restaurant used to give a piece of pita after/before I washed my hands, could someone please explain the purpose/meaning of this? (Im pretty sure it dealt w/ Judaism)
