The tortas at Xoco are on my list for Chicago in June. Rick Bayless is the man.

The first #1:

The New Luther — ChurchKey, Washington, D.C.
http://www.endlesssimmer.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Luther.JPG

It takes some chutzpa to reinvent what Endless Simmer has already called the best drunk food in America, but chef Kyle Bailey is not afraid. Named for its alleged creator, Luther Vandross, the original Luther sandwich consists of a bacon cheeseburger wedged between two halves of a Krispy Kreme donut, but that now seems rather simple in comparison. At ChurchKey, a house-made brioche donut is glazed in savory maple-chicken jus and topped with warm pieces of oven-baked pecans. While that sounds like a meal already, the brioche is cut in half and stuffed with a hunk of buttermilk fried chicken and wedges of applewood smoked bacon. Perhaps realizing that serving these daily would be a public health hazard, ChurchKey’s Luther is somewhat of a speakeasy sandwich; unlisted on the menu, it’s available only by request on Sundays, from noon to 8 p.m.

And this one:

The Paul Reubens — Ike’s Place — San Francisco

Something about this sandwich makes us feel as happy as Pee Wee’s playhouse and as dirty as Paul Reuben’s playhouse at the same time. Ike’s sandwich has sliced corned beef, homemade poppy seed coleslaw, French dressing and Swiss cheese piled on crispy Dutch crunch bread. (Photo: Kanuck)

That was my exact thought when I read the entry from Xoco. I'll be visiting there next time I'm in ChiTown.

Deep frying the whole thing is, but yes... you're right that they are fried like french toast very often.

I've never had a Monte Christo that WASN'T deep fried.

That's how Pore Richards in Topeka made them for 30 years, and how Bennigans made them.

Interesting. I guess that I've usually had them where the bread is battered and fried but not the whole thing battered and fried so that it turns it into a single unit, encased in batter.

This is a place I loved down in Tampa's Soho district called "Daily Eats" it served a double cheeseburge that used two grilled cheese sandwiches as the bun. Skip to about .40 sec for the money shot.

That's become a "standard" of lunch trucks in recent years. The "Grill "em All" truck from the Great Food Truck Race had one, but I imagine that they were just following the trend.

I've been thinking of opening a Food Truck that serves only Flat Bread sandwhiches, kind of a cross between a pita and a puffy taco shell. With sandwiches like sliced skirt steak with pickled red onions. A Tandoori Chicken sandwich with raisins, chopped nuts and mayo and couple more with BBQ pork like a Cuban and a traditional pulled pork.

My friends and I talk about doing a food truck all the time. My idea was to do a fried pie type truck, with both savory and sweet.

Also draw on the various "fried pie" type creations from a bunch of different cultures and mash them up.

I like it. I never got why people started restaurants without trying out a food truck first. Buy or rent a food truck for under $5k take it out on the weekends to a local farmers market, try out a bunch of your recipes, see which works and test the market for your product.

I would convert it to an 8 hour fast.

I always break my 24 hours fasts into 8 hours stretches. Then I run them from midnight to 8:00 am. That way I can fast 56 hours a week.

It's the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the thread title... it's really good.

The Dead Texan* – $13.99 Featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives!

Two Texas toast grilled cheese sandwiches with a 1/3 lb. burger, 1 egg, 2 slices of bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos, and peppercorn mayo in between.

what's the deal with people putting coleslaw and/or french fries on sandwiches?

This is a sandwich daring enough to say: "I know you are, but what am I???"

I love living here in Portland, we have the best food carts around. A few of those top sandwiches are from portland food carts.
